Synopsis

Using the case study method this unit provides an analytical framework from which students can explore how marketing strategy is applied to a variety of organisations within the context of contemporary and emerging issues. Students will be taught how to analyse, evaluate and implement marketing strategy. As this is the capstone unit in the Master of Marketing degree course, a theoretical grounding in the earlier core marketing units is essential for students undertaking this unit.

  1. integrate the theoretical and functional aspects of marketing (and other business disciplines) into a practical problem-solving framework
  2. analyse information supplied from a case and identify the core marketing problem
  3. design, evaluate and recommend marketing strategies that solve the identified core marketing problem
  4. develop personal communication and discussion skills.
