  Marketing Management --- This course is concerned with understanding 1) an entity's own goals and abilities and 2) its potential and existing customers and competitors as bases for setting objectives and making decisions about products, services, pricing, promotion, and distribution. The ability to analyze current situations and objectives, recognize impediments, and generate solutions is the foundation for creating, achieving, and maintaining competitive advantage. This is a management-oriented course designed to give students an integrative framework for analyzing marketing programs and making marketing decisions. Leveraging the Business School's action-based learning approach, student teams take an active part in course development by creating cases based on their own areas of interest. The course consists of a mixture of lectures, student case presentations, in-class exercises, and a case-based final examination.
