Why take this course? No matter what you do in life, understanding Marketing will help you to do it better. Good marketers typically climb to the top of organizations faster and have a better track record in business than professionals from other disciplines. As the famous author Robert Louis Stevenson wrote, “Everyone makes a living by selling something.” Course Description : BUAD 307 is designed to provide fundamental concepts, theories, ideas, proven techniques, models and systems for understanding and managing the marketing function of an organization. Application of marketing concepts and techniques to real world problems will be stressed so that students (1) learn how marketing should be, and is, practiced and (2) will be ready to manage the marketing function of an organization.
