>> Marketing Management
Each case was chosen because it allows you to apply the information contained in the chapters. Many people are under the impression that in marketing, there are no right and wrong answers. Each decision is based on the marketer's personal opinion. In reality, that is not true. There are consequences to each decision and as a result, there are right and wrong decisions. In each of the cases, there are right and wrong answers. When answering a question, unless the question states, "in your opinion," the answer relates to specific information that can be found in the textbook. The information can be obtained in any module that has been presented up to that point. This allows you to see the relationship between the various concepts presented in the textbook.
The cases must be at least 2 pages, font size of 12, times new roman, and double-spaced. If you find that your case is less than that, you are definitely missing something.
