  • Overview

    Strategic Marketing Management is a business philosophy which puts the customer at the centre of the business. It is the ability of the organisation to organise itself to meet the current and the future needs of customer more effectively than its competitors. It requires a range of skills on the part of the strategic marketing manager and it requires the organisation to adopt a carefully thought out systematic approach with clearly articulated objectives. Strategic Marketing Management integrates different aspects of marketing activity within the organisation including segmentation, positioning, competitive strategy, new product development, brand management, communications, pricing and distribution. 
    The purpose of this course it to provide students with an appreciation and understanding of the particular challenge that strategic marketing management presents, and to equip them with a range of tools to be effective strategic marketing managers. This will involve providing them with a review of the theory and practice of strategic marketing management. It will also involve developing an understanding of the contexts within which strategic marketing management operates, looking in particular at the environment (both internal & external) within which it can/does operate
