Overview

Marketing is fundamental to the operations of any organisation whether it is a local family-run convenience store, a charity, a new online game or a product-diverse multinational enterprise. The course examines the fundamentals of marketing setting them within a contemporary context to which students can relate. This course provides students with marketing case study analysis, based on real-life examples of marketing approaches and strategies. .Marketing is explored from an academic, practitioner and student (as a consumer) perspective.
