This module provides an introduction to the objectives and nature of marketing as a business function. The central focus is on the process by which organisations identify customer needs and wants, determine which target markets can best be served and design appropriate programmes to serve these markets. Marketing is both a core business function and an organisation-wide philosophy. The marketing concept goes to the heart of an organisation’s need to articulate and pursue objectives, whilst generating value for its different stakeholders.
The module emphasises the concept of customer value; it also explores and evaluates the decisions and approaches available to organisations for delivering customer value. This includes consideration of the various elements of the marketing mix, such as the role of product, brand, price, promotion, place and people.
