Course Description: An introduction to basic marketing. The most basic objectives of the course are to provide you with a broad introduction to marketing concepts, the role of marketing in society and in the firm and various factors that influence marketing decision making. Like other introductory survey courses, you will be exposed to and expected to learn the “language of marketing” (that is terms, concepts and frameworks) used by practicing marketing managers). However, it is also expected that by the end of the course you will have a solid understanding of the major decision areas under marketing responsibilities, the basic interrelationships of those decision areas and an appreciation of how to apply key frameworks and tools for analyzing customers, competition, and marketing strengths and weaknesses. In combination, then, the course should help you to develop insight about creative selection of target markets and blending decisions related to product, price, promotion and place to meet the needs of a target market.

Course Requirements: Your semester grade will be based upon the following:

Exams: Exams are closed book. The type of questions will be basic: (True/False, multiple choice and short answer). If a student is unable to take the exam on the designated exam date, then that student is to contact the WBU office and arrange a time to take the exam. The exam is to be taken before the next regularly scheduled class meeting. Failure to do so will result in a zero (0) on that exam. The student is required to contact the professor about the reason for not being able to take the exam on the regularly scheduled class period. The only reason allowed to take the exam on a different day is due to an emergency or work related conflict. If the professor approves the reason to take the exam on a different day, then it is the responsibility of the student to contact the WBU office and arrange for the test taking. All other reason will not be allowed.
