Description: What is marketing? For some, it is a strategy to turn interest into action. For others, it is a process of building an identity, crafting a message, creating a dialogue, and building trust. To many, it is the art of continuously anticipating needs and meeting — if not exceeding — expectations, of winning hearts and creating value. From messaging to pricing to service, marketing is chain of milestones, variables, and touch points that are constantly under the microscope. Doing that requires an underlying management philosophy and structure.

In this course, learners will examine “the major elements of the marketing mix – product policy, channels of distribution, communication, and pricing – and see how they fit within different analytical frameworks that are useful to managers.” The course will conclude with students developing their own marketing plan.

Review: No reviews.
