Welcome to Principles of Marketing. I hope you find this module a valuable learning experience.
The challenges of providing superior customer value and gaining a competitive advantage have become crucial issues to a diverse range of companies. Delivering value and achieving a competitive advantage requires, among other things, a thorough understanding of markets, buyers and competition and an ability to match an organisation’s strengths to external opportunities.
In this module students are introduced to a wide range of concepts covering the whole field of marketing. For students intending to specialise in marketing it will provide a valuable introduction, underpinning the more specialist studies later on in their degree programme. Those students intending to specialise in another discipline will find that the course allows them to understand the marketing concepts and their relevance within a wider commercial environment.
The teaching and learning approach throughout this module is interactive. As a result of this, you are expected to contribute to the discussion of numerous marketing issues.
I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Dr. Olga Mourouti
