This module deals with the role of Marketing in the strategic and functional management of organisations. It treats Marketing as those particular behaviours whose role is to develop the link between customers and some key proceses within the organisation - these behaviours are what distinguish Marketing from other functional areas of business.

The module also gets students to carry out investigative management research, with the purpose of developing skills and knowledge needed for a dissertation or for other types of business project.
