  • Hafen, Tom
  • Content
    This course introduces the principles of brand management as practiced by industry leaders today. Although the implementation of marketing programs has undergone a massive transformation from conventional to digital media, the underlying principles of consumer driven marketing remain essentially the same; we will discuss how great marketing, including digital programming, is driven by a sound understanding of consumer segmentation, brand positioning, distinct product benefits, and relevant in-market executions.

    Upon completion of this course, you should understand essential marketing concepts and use them to develop marketing strategies. You will develop this understanding through core readings, basic frameworks, and case studies involving firms such as Procter & Gamble, Drunk Elephant, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Porsche, Nestle, Sephora, and Glossier.

    This course is relevant for students interested in driving consumer demand regardless of career path. There are no prerequisites.
