Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
The class assessment in
MK351 shall consist of two written examinations, class discussion of an
assigned case study, three quizzes (given on weeks 3, 5 and 7) and a class presentation. The format of the midterm and final exams will be multiple choice. The format of the quizzes will be short answer. The class presentation will require each student to create a new, unique product. The student will then develop a marketing plan for the new product. The marketing plan will require the student to explain what the new product is and its benefits. The student will also identify the target market, where the product is to be made available, the expected price, and how the product will be promoted. Students will also develop a S.W.O.T analysis for the launch of the new product, identifying anticipated strengths and weaknesses as well as opportunities and threats.
