follows: Marketing is everywhere. Formally or informally, people and organisations engage in a vast number of
activities that we could call marketing. Effective marketing has become an increasingly vital ingredient for
business success. And marketing profoundly affects our day-to-day lives. It is embedded in everything we do

students to the principles and practices of marketing, from both a local and international perspective. The
course covers various topics, including: Defining marketing; the role of market research in marketing; building
strong brands; applying the 4Ps/7Ps of the marketing mix; goods versus services marketing and, integrated
