(Bob) Girondi, M.B.A. Mobile phone: 610-299-6690 e-mail: robert.girondi@temple.edu Course Objectives: The primary intent of this course is to provide participants with the opportunity to review, analyze, and discuss (verbally and in writing) current issues in marketing, particularly as they influence the development of marketing strategy. Two texts and related lecture material designed around a strategic marketing approach with an emphasis on the basics of strategic analysis, planning, and marketing plan development will form the core of this course. Emphasis will be given to active participation, discourse, case studies, and related assignments that are a part of this course. While the reading of the appropriate text material required to form the basis of case study understanding, discussion, and presentation will be the responsibility of each student , lecture will be included in the presentation of the course material to ensure key points are fully understood. A series of real-world case studies, a semester project, and a series of quizzes will also be elements of this course. While there will be no formal final examination, marketing plan team presentations are scheduled for two class sessions at the end of the course (4/18 and 4/25). The overriding goal of this course is for each participant to develop an appreciation for, and an understanding of, the principles and practical aspects of strategic marketing management and their application. Prerequisites: Marketing 2101 (formerly Marketing 0081) or 2901 (0091), Marketing 3596 (W160), Marketing 3511 (0210), and at least one other 3500 level marketing course. It is expected that students enrolled in 4596 will have a good understanding of what was covered in these prerequisite courses. 1
