This course will give the student an understanding and appreciation
for marketing in telecommunications, including television, radio and
the Internet. The class will touch on traditional marketing concepts
(terms such as branding, reach, frequency, consumer research), but
an MBA will not be necessary.
Since marketing is an evolving discipline, emphasis will be placed
on current strategies and techniques employed throughout all media,
with a concentration on television. Marketing is also a
collaborative process, so class participation and a cooperative
project are a part of the studentís grade.
C.) Course format. Lectures are delivered in large classrooms.
Classes often include 70-80 students, but questions and discussion
are encouraged. A group project incorporates concepts learned at the
end of the semester. Three individual projects, a mid-term exam and
final exam combine with the group project and
participation/attendance to determine the studentís grade.
D.) Requirements the course will meet. To see which requirements,
