The term project for MKT 5160 is the creation of a marketing plan. This is an individual assignment. Your term project consists of creating a new product or service and developing a marketing plan for this product or service. This product or service can be a completely new idea from a completely new company, or it can be a completely new idea from an established company, or it can be a significantly modified product or service from an established company.

The purpose of the term project is to allow application of class terminology and concepts. The project is theoretical in nature. The instructor understands that not all information is available to you, not are you required to conduct extensive research. The goal is the application of the concept.
