About This Course
Instructor Who Teaches This Course: Dr. Corey Pfaffe
“In your Principles of Marketing course, you dissect one of the most important matters to business owners—how to create exchanges (i.e., Sales!) with customers. Exchange is at the heart of business. Profitable enterprises create customer value with quality products, distributed when and where they’re wanted, communicated effectively, and priced appropriately. About one quarter of each day’s Wall Street Journal is devoted to marketing. Your reading and peer discussions of its top business reporting brings to life the ’4 P’s’ of Product, Promotion, Price and Place.”
