This course presents the analytical and decision-making processes involved in formulating, implementing, and controlling a strategic marketing program for a given product-market entry. It includes discussions of customer, competitor, and environmental analysis; market segmentation and targeting; competitive positioning; implementation; and control. Because the course assumes that the student is already familiar with many of the concepts and analytical tools relevant to these topics, it goes beyond a simple review of definitions and procedures to examine strategic implications. The course also explores how marketing interacts with other levels of strategy and with other functional departments within an organization.
