The world of marketing is changing every day, and in order for students to have a competitive edge, they need to be well versed in today’s marketing theory and practices. This course provides a comprehensive review and analysis of marketing issues, practices, and strategies. I have tried to use an active – learning approach that involves students in this course by combining facts, figures, information and photos in an engaging and experiential fashion. We have incorporate examples of companies, products and services that students recognize and may have purchased as consumers. I hope that you will find this course a useful companion in your exploration of the knowledge, skills, and tools of the marketing discipline.
