Management and Marketing
Marketing, the process responsible for identifying, anticipating and satisfying customer requirements profitably, is essential for business success.
Marketing is important in building customer relationships as well as creating product awareness. Marketers must address what the company sells, what price it charges, how it promotes its products, and where it sells them.
Marketing uses a sophisticated set of disciplines, requiring a broad understanding of technology, how to research and use data, plus a good grounding in a variety of social and business areas.
The course is delivered in eight semesters over four years.
Year 1 provides the student with a foundation in core business subjects. Subsequent years will include instruction in buyer behaviour, marketing research, communications, information analysis, information technology, strategic marketing, international marketing, branding and advertising, sales operations and management, public relations, retailing, services marketing, and applications to specific products and markets.
I am interested in Marketing, should I choose Level 7 CR 021 or Level 8 CR 420?
If you would like a broad range of business topics, with the opportunity to choose a business specialism such as Marketing, Business and Management, or Accounting at a later stage, you should apply for CR 021. If, however, you are confident that Marketing is your preference, you should consider applying for Level 8 CR 420 which specialises in this area from Year 1.
If I am not doing any of the recommended subjects in the Leaving Certificate, can I still apply for this course?
Yes, the core fundamentals are delivered in Year 1 and we assume that students have not taken these subjects.
There is an extensive range of career opportunities in areas such as Market Research, Brand Management, Advertising, Promotion, Direct Marketing, Services Marketing, International Marketing and Sales Management.
