SUBJECT RATIONALE

 

Kotler, Keller and Burton’s book on Marketing Management talks about marketing in the 21st century as follows: “Marketing is everywhere. Formally or informally, people and organisations engage in a vast number of activities that we could call marketing. Effective marketing has become an increasingly vital ingredient for business success. And marketing profoundly affects our day-to-day lives. It is embedded in everything we do – from the clothes we wear, to the websites we click on, to the ads we see.”

 

The purpose of this subject is to provide an understanding of marketing management and to introduce students to the principles and practices of marketing, from both a local and international perspective. The course covers various topics, including: Defining marketing; the role of market research in marketing; building strong brands; applying the 4P’s/7P’s of the marketing mix; goods versus services marketing and, integrated marketing communications (IMC).
