Marketing looks at the world from the point of view of business and consumption. Therefore, it is important to understand how business can work to satisfy consumer needs and wants, in a world full of an ever-increasing variety of goods and services.
At the same time, Marketing needs to recognise that consumption contributes to the depletion of resources and an increase in social inequalities.
Its role, therefore, is to help consumers and producers work together for the common good of society.
Who uses Marketing? Everyone does.
Marketing influences just about every industry and organisation you can think of, including professions such as accounting, law, medicine, engineering and the sciences, providing them with an essential commercial perspective and an understanding of the importance of building honest and mutually beneficial relationships.
Marketing is people-oriented and it offers careers that are exciting, challenging, and rewarding. As Otago’s courses are broad-based, our graduates are well equipped to work in a large variety of roles in organisations large and small, ranging across private, public, and not-for-profit sectors.
