When asked, many people would say marketing is “selling and advertising”. We will see that there is more to marketing than that. Marketing has been defined as ““Activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large.” (American Marketing Association) . It is therefore more than mere advertising or being creative. This course gives students an introduction to the field of marketing and will cover subjects as the marketing management process and market research, creating product offerings through product development and pricing strategies, delivering value through supply chain decisions and service strategies, and communicating to markets both through personal and impersonal media.

Academic skills
This course focuses on the following academic skills:
Communication skills
•      Being able to present the content of an article or the results of an (instructed) research
Social responsibility
•      Being able to work effectively in teams for a specific project with limited intervention or instruction. 

The course will consist of lectures in which the theoretical concepts of marketing management will be explained and instructions are given for a team project in which students study a specific marketing case. During the tutorials students will present the progress they are making with a series of assignments to apply marketing theory and collect and analyze marketing data.

Effort requirements
Students are expected to make a weekly online MC-test and participate in the lectures, workshops and research assignments given.
Students who miss the first tutorial, in which the workshop teams are formed, without prior consent by the course coordinator cannot participate in the further course. Therefore, attendance at the first tutorial is mandatory.
