A study of Marketing basics giving an in-depth understanding of Marketing’s traditional 4Ps, from a managerial orientation. We will cover marketing strategy and effective planning concepts in order to focus on meeting consumer and business needs. Other topics discussed will include: global marketing, consumer behavior, relationships, ethics, and productivity.
The course is considered a higher level course (300 level) and requires students to apply themselves in the areas of analysis and critical thinking, and the communication of thought-out ideas. Numerous opportunities will be provided for you to demonstrate your increasing knowledge of the subject-matter over the course of our time together.

Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
A comprehensive marketing case analysis is the chosen assessment device for the Principles of Marketing course. This case will be the final exam and is designed to gauge your knowledge of the core outcomes of the class. This will be a closed book, closed note examination held during the designated final exam slot for this section in a proctored environment. Students are expected to spend approximately 45 minutes reading the case and 1 hour and 15 minutes developing an essay that addresses the core outcomes relative to the firm information presented in the case. This test will count for at least 20% of your grade. This course is part of the University-wide assessment evaluation, and all sections will receive the same case for analysis.
