Course content

This course provides the theoretical foundations of marketing and an appreciation of the skills required in solving analytical and practical marketing problems.

Students consider the use and application of management science techniques in a variety of marketing and business contexts through courses in marketing management, marketing decision analysis, business statistics and forecasting, marketing research methods, and more advanced applications in credit risk management, problem solving and spreadsheet modelling skills and data mining.

This practical application of quantitative marketing, taught alongside the theoretical underpinnings of marketing aptly prepares students for careers as market analysts, business consultants, database managers and marketing researchers.
