Gestión de marketing

This Principles of Marketing course provides students with an introduction to the role of marketing and the principles and challenges involved in developing successful marketing programs. Students will be taken from an introduction to the role of marketing in the organization through the principle tools of marketing and finish the course examining the wider social and ethical implications of marketing. We will have the opportunity to analyze how the function of marketing has evolved over time driven by factors such as the changing nature of the consumer, globalization, technology and socio-cultural factors. While this course imparts the traditional concepts of managing the marketing mix with a balanced focus on the consumer and the competitor, it also examines more innovative and often more aggressive promotional strategies that have emerged in the digital era.
