Inhalt Marketing is a fascinating field whose challenge lies in making choices and proposing actions based on understanding of human behavior in different contexts. In practice, this knowledge is based on imperfect information about markets, customers, and competitors. Limitations in options and resources add further complications. Marketing hence requires not only analytical skills but also creativity and strategic thinking.

To deal with this challenge, marketing offers various concepts and frameworks. They are not mind-blowingly complex; they are common sense. An apparent challenge can be that there are so many of them. Pulling out the right concept or framework for the right problem at the right time can be overwhelming. Marketing can feel like juggling 10 tennis balls while running in a treadmill with other people throwing tennis balls at you. Coping with this challenge is hard to teach in a regular course; you really need to experience it.

The course is built around MARKSTRAT, the world’s leading business simulation. It gives you the opportunity to apply ideas developed during short lectures as well as the knowledge, concepts and tools from your introductory marketing course over several rounds of decisions, each representing an annual planning cycle. The course has a strong group focus; all your decisions are made within a team of several individuals and let you experience how to integrate diverse opinions into a single strategy.

Lernziele The objective of the course Competing in a Simulated Market: Running the Marketing Department is to deliver this experience. It teaches you how to make marketing decisions in a dynamic and competitive environment through a business simulation, which requires you to develop and manage a portfolio of brands over several periods (years) in a fast-changing market, where you compete directly against other teams in the class. Through this learning-by-doing approach, the course focuses on deepening your marketing knowledge. In particular, it aims to develop your ability:
• To analyze the situation of a business to identify threats and opportunities, strengths and weaknesses using different marketing resource tools.
• To target, position and grow a portfolio of brands over the product life cycle with different marketing actions.
• To set priorities and make tradeoffs with limited resources to implement marketing actions.
• To see and sense market forces to better anticipate reactions from customers and competitors and achieve your business objectives.
Literatur Will be announced in the course.
Bemerkungen IMPORTANT: The course time had to be changed to Monday 8.30 - 12.00.
