Marketing is a key factor in business success. On a daily basis we are exposed to a plethora of marketing messages and actively engage in the marketplace and/or marketspace. Often our purchasing decisions are heavily influenced by organisational marketing efforts. We 'display' our favourite brands through the clothes we wear, the cars we drive and the football teams we support. Marketing is everywhere! It is an inescapable feature of our contemporary world. The focus of the module is on the theory and practice of marketing. The module will provide students with insights into the issues and tasks that marketing managers face in complex and dynamic marketplaces (and marketspaces) and the concepts and theories that can be used to inform marketing decision making.
