Evaluating the impact of marketing strategies and tactics on consumers, brands, firms, and competition.

Marketing provides insights into customer needs, ideas for developing new products, and strategic plans for profitably launching these products in a competitive marketplace.

Marketing knowledge is indispensible in today’s turbulent business environment. Consumers are inundated with information through the internet, cell phones, satellite television and personal digital assistants. More and more products are being launched in an already crowded marketplace.
