This is the lead course in the Strategic Product and Marketing Immersion. This course is essential for students going into product and brand management careers. Many of our students are successfully placed in product/brand jobs in companies such as Amazon, Apple, American Express, Bayer, Colgate, Citibank, General Mills, Google, Microsoft, S C Johnson, Unilever and Verizon or early stage startups. Students interested in general management and those who plan to start their own businesses might also find this course useful. This course introduces students to the frameworks that address how to launch new products, run A/B tests to prove out growth strategies, write positioning statements, build brands, managing portfolios of products, and optimize offline and digital marketing activities. The course entails (i) lectures, (ii) intensive case presentations, (iii) a trek to companies, and (vi) a real-world consulting project. In the real-world consulting project, students have to work in teams to solve a product and/or marketing problem for an actual company.
