Subject Content

The core of this subject is the development of a marketing plan for a real commercial enterprise. The creation of the marketing plan itself (which is a team effort) comprises the major component of this subject. There is also a substantial emphasis on individual effort and assessment. The individual component comprises a reflective journal exercise as well as a short final exam. Teams of 5-6 participants will be assigned to a client organisation that has already formally agreed to work with the university. The aim is to produce a detailed marketing plan that can be assessed by the client organisation for its viability, appropriateness, forecasted financial cost and payback and if so decided by the client, actually implemented. Contact with client companies will be between nominated team members and senior company executives, at times and dates to be confirmed.
