  • Overview

    The overall objectives of this unit are to introduce methods of strategic thinking and a set of practical tools and concepts that will enable students to develop, evaluate and implement innovative marketing strategies; and to provide theories, frameworks and examples relating to the management of critical aspects of strategic marketing activity. The focus is on a customer-oriented approach to the marketing organisation, market definition, and market segmentation; as well as an entrepreneurial approach to strategic choice. Throughout the unit the emphasis is on the analysis process: identifying information needs, acquiring the necessary information, interpreting it, and using it as the basis for business recommendations. During this unit students will engage in a marketing strategy simulation game and will have the opportunity of making a series of complex, real-world marketing decisions. It places teams in a dynamic competitive environment in which they devise and pursue their own strategies and react to the moves of competitors.
