"A strong grasp of marketing concepts and theory acts as the sounding board for any marketer as they build strategies to grow their business and launch campaigns. However, one also needs an understanding what happens in the real world.
In addition to advancing student knowledge of marketing, I hope to provide that reality check for class participants."
