L2.S3 Business English.

Purpose of the Course

Marketing is like cooking. Like cooks, marketers take different ingredients and mix them together in creative ways to make new things. When the marketer gets the mix right, the result will be a product or service that customers will buy. This semester in Business English, we will cover the concepts of marketing strategy and marketing mix. In this course, we’ll look at Marketing Tools and Practices that lead to a solid Market Positioning. By the end of the semester, you will draft your Marketing Mix to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a product you intend to commercialize. We will also work on developing your own marketing strategy, by studying how future graduates like you can market themselves, by producing professional documents like résumé, cover letter, and the like.
