course contents

Brand management is the analysis and planning on a specific brand meaning that is perceived on the targeted market. Tangible elements of brand management include the product itself, feel, look, price, the packaging and others. The intangible elements are the experience that the single consumer has had with the brand. The brand manager orchestrates all aspects of the consumer's brand association as well as relationships of the supply chain.
The course will focus on major brand issues such as: brands as a contact point, brand awareness, brand image, brand loyalty, corporate reputation, brand involvement, brands and semiotics, the socio-cultural framework of brand management, and brand strategy.
