About the course
Marketing is all around you - you are exposed to marketing in almost everything you do. As a result, everyone and every organisation seem to have an intuitive understanding of what marketing is all about: marketing is about selling, advertising, and promotion. Hence, marketing is just common sense. Is this really true? Is that marketing all about? Do you really understand the marketing management process? These are the questions which we will address and debate in this programme.
Marketing is far more than just advertising and promotion; it is first and foremost a strategic analysis of the market environment, including customer, competitor, company, context and collaborator, and then strategic execution of segmentation, targeting and positioning.
