Courses Taught

An overview of marketing for non-business majors. Topics include customer behavior, service/product development, pricing, and promotion in diverse markets.BA 303 Marketing (3) The goal of BA 303 is to provide broad-based exposure and understanding of marketing and its processes. The course is meant to be a "stand alone" marketing course for those interested in the role of marketing within the business context and will cover a range of topics from the basic (what is marketing) to the processes (market segmentation, marketing strategy, development of product, price, place and promotion) to the broader societal questions (why marketing exists, ethics, the future of marketing). There will also be an opportunity to examine marketing from the perspective of various industries for non-business students. Exams will test factual knowledge of marketing and the marketing process. Written homework assignments will ask students to work both individually and in teams to apply course concepts. These may include assignments developing one's skill set in consumer psychology, target market selection, writing a positioning statement, developing a marketing plan, new product development concepts, promotional campaign ideas, and ethical questions to discuss and debate. Students may also be asked to form small groups for discussion and/or make presentations to the class based on set marketing topics specific to one's area of interest. Students will also be expected to participate in class discussions. A student may not receive credit towards graduation for both B A 303 and MKTG 221 or MKTG 221W.

MKTG 445 – Global Marketing (3)
Role of international marketing in the global environment; political, economic, geographic, historical, cultural conditions; developing and implementing international marketing strategies. MKTG (I B) 445 Global Marketing (3) (IL) MKTG/I B 445 focuses on the wide range of issues, which face enterprises as they develop and execute marketing strategies and tactics, designed to support business activities in markets outside their home country. This course deals directly with these issues as they apply to firms, which concentrate on a few markets closer to home, or on many markets throughout the world, including via the Internet. This course also deals with the important role played by governments in shaping the global marketing environment, including through trade policies, treaties and marketing supports. Students successfully completing this course also gain a greater understanding of the cultural, technological, economic, political and social environments which international businesses and global marketers face as they seek to expand their product and/or service offerings into other nations. Understanding this important part of the challenge facing international businesses and global marketers is achieved through the text, lectures, and student group projects and presentations including some focused on specific countries, including both major trading partners of the United States and select emerging new markets. This course is designed for students who have an interest in these topics and/or who plan to enter fields such as international business or global marketing and/or who expect to work for businesses, which are active internationally. Class discussions and projects are designed to help students explore these topics in greater depth. A series of small group assignments and presentations will further help students apply what is being learned via problem-based learning. This is an interactive class. Therefore, a portion of the grade each student achieves will be based on class attendance and participation. Students are also expected to pay attention to examples of the issues discussed in class that they encounter during the semester in prim broadcast, and online communications. Along with material from lectures and the text, issues discussed in class will be included in the exam.
