Session Etiquette

1. Introduction
Marketing impact our daily life consciously and subconsciously. Its perceived benefits and threats to modern society, businesses, and individuals are widely recognised by the public. Despite these perceptions are not always accurate, but what is without a doubt is that marketing as an academic discipline and a career path has attracted further attention from the students in recent decades.

This module provides an essential introduction and prepares you to build on this at later stages, academically and professionally. In addition, it is core to several business degrees and the marketing pathway. With our teaching team, we hope that you will find this module inspiring and that it will provide you with a good foundation for recognising marketing and its positive and negative impact in your everyday world.
