Every day we come into contact with marketing. Each time a purchase is made, or a service utilised, the principles of marketing have been involved. Marketing influences your choice of hair salon, washing powder or car, and even the television programmes you watch. Even your Curriculum Vitae is part of a marketing programme to sell yourself to an employer, but marketing management means more than just selling.
Marketing is the link between the producer of a product and the customers for those products. Should you pursue a career in marketing, you open the door to a varied range of opportunities. Marketing includes a number of activities - research, strategic planning, product development and management, pricing, distribution, consumer behaviour and advertising and promotions - each of which can be applied globally. Research and product development and management are just as pertinent in Japan as in London, Italy or New Zealand. Markets are different, but marketing is universal and applicable to a job in any part of the world. Whatever your career plan, be it with a multi-national, working in a non-profit organisation or self-employment, marketing skills and knowledge are necessary.
