Course features

Marketing gives you a theoretical introduction to marketing, its concepts and its principles.

The course uses a simple case study, and basic exercises such as multiple choice and true or false questions. After each exercise you'll be given feedback on how you've done.

An audio soundtrack delivers most of the content, with simple graphics and on-screen text summarising the key points.

You can print a transcript of each screen’s audio component for future reference. The course also includes a glossary of business terms, an alphabetical list of business “thought leaders”, and a resources section featuring links to useful online business resources.

Marketing is available for six months from the date first accessed.
