Students enrolling in the Management major should be enrolled in this unit rather than BMA151.
Marketing is the practice of managing an organisation’s market offerings to create value-laden customer exchanges. Adopting a market orientation means organisations allow their marketing practices to be responsive to opportunities, and threats presented in the business environment. This responsiveness enables them to compete effectively in an increasingly dynamic global marketplace. This unit explores the basic principles and concepts that underpin marketing. You will be introduced to theories supporting market segmentation, target marketing, positioning and the marketing mix. This unit will provide you with the foundational knowledge on how firms market products, and an understanding of the role of marketing within the organisational, business and social environment. This unit will help you to develop skills in the application of marketing concepts to practical business problems in order to identify potential marketing solutions.
