20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module integrates consulting with marketing through application on a real company project. Students will become familiar with the practice of marketing and important managerial decisions including those about the choice of the target market, the nature of the offer (product/service), pricing, distribution, promotion and finally communications. While marketing will provide a set of principles and context, consultancy will provide students with an opportunity to apply theoretically grounded consulting principles into a client based marketing problem. The rationale is that many business consulting projects are driven by the initial need for improvement in markets, products and channels to customers, branding and the design of associated processes.
