Business Marketing ZAA134

Cradle Coast, Launceston, Hobart

Introduction

This unit introduces the principles of marketing in business, the influence of consumers and the external environment. You will explore why and how a business identifies and analyses the markets for its products, services and experience. This will include an appreciation of the scope of the marketing practitioner, value propositions, marketing theory, brand messages, customer relations management and marketing channels.

In conjunction with the discipline theory, this unit introduces learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs.
You will be introduced to:

- a range of methods, tools, techniques and approaches to practice
- principles and perspectives such as values, ethics, empathy and leadership in real world scenarios
- reflection and deliberative thinking as a means of developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations
- ways of understanding problems and developing solutions through active inquiry.
