Marketing Strategy 4.0 & disruptive competitors 2023-24
Bangor Business School
Module - Semester 1
The module commences with a review of the philosophy and process of marketing, including service operations, before considering the challenges of planning in the marketing environment. Planning requires market research to understand the consumer, and needs to reflect the behaviour of organisations as buyers and suppliers.

This requires not only communicating value for customers, and versus competitors, but also the implementation of an integrated marketing strategy which recognises current & future threats and opportunities (Internet, International and Integrity).
