MKTG 7100 - Brand Strategy in the Digital Age

Marketing Management Part-time Studies Course

School of Business + Media

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

At the core of every great business is a great brand. In this course, students will learn how to break down and analyze the elements of a great brand and then utilize the tools to build them. Students will learn how to position and brand products and services in order to prevent them from being turned into commodities, with the understanding that all marketing communications campaigns serve the larger mission of developing a brand. Brand managers face many challenges including how to use brand architecture to develop strategic direction, and how to develop value propositions that resonate with key audiences. The complexity of these challenges has been exacerbated through the digitization of consumer communication. The goal of this course is to provide concepts, models, methods, and role models that will help address these challenges and position brand managers to keep pace with rapidly advancing technology.
