Description

Marketing is the process whereby business organisations take the goods and services they produce from the development of the initial concept of providing something of value, though to its eventual purchase and use by consumers. With the steady rise in material wealth across the world, and exponential increases in access to timely and specific information, in the twenty-first century consumers have more power than ever to dictate to business organisations the nature of the goods and services they want and need. Allied with this increase in consumer power is the greatly enhanced scope and scale of marketing channels available to businesses to promote their brands, with the associated increase in competition for consumers’ attention. To assist in business success, marketing responsibilities are no longer limited to a specific department but require the whole firm to work in an integrated way to achieve its goals. Students will gain knowledge about the stages in the marketing process, and skills to make effective decisions to market products and services in an international context.
