MKT 632 - Strategic Brand Management


This course approaches the study of brand management by illustrating the formulation of strategically sound brand management programs and the evaluation and control of the implementation of key brand initiatives (new products, advertising support, etc.). Focus is on theories and models to develop and manage brand equity. Specific learning modules include customer development, brand strategy development, brand extension development and annual brand planning. Specific attention is focused on case studies and team projects in building, measuring and managing brand equity.

Building and effectively maintaining brand equity is among the top priorities of high performing companies. Effective brand-building and brand management drives superior financial results, consumer loyalty and competitive insulation. This course provides students with insights into how profitable brand strategies can be created and the implications for brand management professionals. The class blends marketing theory and practice to provide perspective on corporate marketing and the brand management function. Therefore, the goal of competitive strategy for a brand is to find a position in the industry where the brand can: 1) articulate a compelling value proposition, 2) defend itself against competitive forces and influence them in its favor and 3) leverage communication resources to sell the brand message and build brand equity.
