Description

Advertisement

Marketing as a discipline is a significant part of any organisation, be it a sole proprietor or a conglomerate. It is equally essential across all sectors from not-for-profit charities to profitable multinationals. Effective marketing provides the organisation with a much needed competitive edge.

Rapid changes in technology have changed marketing beyond recognition; over the last five years e-retailing, relationship marketing and sophisticated consumer knowledge demand changing knowledge and skills of the marketing practitioner. The new challenges facing the marketing practitioner involve an appreciation of the shift in economic power to countries like China, India and Russia.

The course focuses on meeting the changing technological, cultural and economic demands of current day marketing. The course content provides a solid base of the essential marketing requirements with a rich diet of electives. It complements and academically enhances the requirements of the professional marketing courses and the MSSSB standards.

The course offers a unique opportunity to establish a solid knowledge base of the essentials of business to business and business to consumer marketing. It provides the opportunity to enhance personal skills which will contribute to career development. The distinctive features include certain essential elements of current day marketing, eg demands in marketing standards like marketing ethics and values of consumers, the shifting power base to India, China, Russia and Brazil, the need to effectively use technology in implementing the marketing mix.
