What is Marketing Strategy?

After completing Video 2.1 successfully, you will be able to explain marketing strategy basics and avoid marketing myopia. You will also be able to use the VSA framework tool in order to find weak signals and help your company survive market tsunamis. Next, in Video 2.3 you will learn a key concept called "Transing" which is a strategy for coping with change in the corporate environment. We apply "Transing" not only to brands, such as Starbucks, but also to individuals, such as Professor Dae Ryun Chang to illustrate how we can transition when aspiring for loftier long term goals. Transing then sets you up for Video 2.4 and the core concept of Cross Industry Innovation -how companies can source ideas or expand into different industries. In the last two videos, you are given the opportunity to hear from two experts in the field: (1) Mr. Siwan Ryu discusses how Mosquito Away, a major new product was developed at LG Electronics with cross-disciplinary collaboration and (2) Ms. Hye-Won Lee talks about how Swarovski's new product ideas such as wearable jewelry was sourced from other industries....

What is Branding?

This lesson will introduce learners to the important concept of brand management at its various levels. It starts by examining the fundamental functions of brands (Video 3.1). Then, we derive the implications for branding for companies going abroad (Video 3.2) in a "Cross Country" growth path. Finally, we discuss how companies entering into new industries should think about brands especially about whether or not to extend brands in a "Cross Industry" growth path (Video 3.3). Learners are also introduced to the ASIANA COBRA paradigm that allows brands to be analyzed in a broader than usual perspective that includes, the brand, the company, the country of origin and the region. Although it originates from an Asian perspective, it can be easily applied to other regions such as North America, South America, Africa or Europe. ...

The course was really good considering the different way of teaching that was involved during the complete course and the various domains that were covered. It was a great experience. Thank You.

By SCSep 6th 2017

Nice course. Excellent professor. But a bit too basic for someone with introductory marketing experience. Wouldn't mind a somewhat more demanding outline.
