This unit is designed to give students an understanding of marketing in organisations. It encompasses the key marketing functions of marketing research, segmenting and targeting customers and developing appropriate marketing mixes for customers.
Learners will gain understanding of the marketing concept and the role of marketing across a range of organisation types including the service and non-profit sectors. They will learn about the importance of marketing research in understanding customers and gain understanding of the principal marketing research methods and tools and when each is suitable. By the end of the unit learners will appreciate the role of segmentation and targeting and understand the marketing mix and its components. They will understand how marketing mix decisions are made to meet the organisation’s objectives and to meet the needs of customers.
This unit combines theory with practical, relevant applications of marketing with examples sourced by both the lecturer and the student. Students will be expected to draw on their own research and their own exposure to and experience of marketing.
