Choosing Marketing

Marketing is about finding ways how organisations can anticipate and satisfy customer needs and wants and provide the market with a number of need- satisfying goods and services. Students will learn about the relationships which organisations form with employees, customers, suppliers, intermediaries, shareholders and other stakeholders.

The subject covers areas such as the research and planning needed to reach specific groups of customers. Students will also learn how companies develop affordable products that meet customer needs better than competitors. Marketing seeks to understand consumer behaviour and communicate the benefits of the products to customers
