11

Rationale for introducing this module (See Guidance Note 11)

This module is a compulsory module for the BSc Marketing UG degree and addresses the key issues of marketing planning in a practical software based simulation.

The rationale for this module is to introduce students to the theme of marketing issues, techniques, concepts and theories at an early stage to gain experience of the range of skills that are needed for the theory based modules that follow in the coming years.

It is also aimed at developing the team building and social skills needed as this is a group based module with groups of between 4-8 .

The skills developed through this simulation, at this early stage of the course, can then form an experience onto which the theory based modules that follow are an essential part of marketers skills and thus of great value to the BSc Marketing programme.



BSIS: If the proposal supersedes an existing module, please give the code and title of the superseded module and the reason for replacement.

Main Aims (See Guidance Note 12)

This module focuses on a marketing simulation that allows students to demonstrate their individual skills and knowledge through the format of a group based simulation and thus put into practice some of the theory based learning that has occurred during the first level of the programme. It particularly aims to develop an understanding of the various principles, driving forces and practices of the marketing subject area. As befits a module of this type, the assessment is through a group presentation and report and thus encourages team building skills.

Learning Outcomes (See Guidance Note 14

Outcomes may be Subject Specific, Intellectual, Practical, or Personal and Social.

On successful completion of this module a student will be expected to be able to*:

Specific

- develop a broad perspective on the role of marketing

-to develop knowledge and skills in product life cycle management, segmentation, positioning, distribution channel investments, advertising budget allocation, after sales services, pricing, sales forecasting, marketing research, competitor analysis, research and development, and profitability

-to develop participants to fully comprehend the different parts of the marketing decision making process, their relationship with each other, and their impact on the company’s overall results.

- to encourage students to analyse and reflect on their own behaviour, decision-making and consumption of products and services through the simulation


Practical

-utilise cognitive skills of critical thinking, analysis and synthesis. This includes the capability to identify assumptions, evaluate statements in terms of evidence, to detect false logic or reasoning, to identify implicit values, to define terms

adequately and to generalise appropriately.

-utilise effective problem solving and decision making using appropriate quantitative and qualitative skills including identifying, formulating and solving business problems.

- create, evaluate and assess a range of options together with the capacity to apply ideas and knowledge to a range of situations.

- effective communication, oral and in writing, using a range of media which are widely used in business such as the preparation and presentation of

business reports

- numeracy and quantitative skills including data analysis, interpretation and extrapolation and the use of models of business problems and phenomena.


Personal

-effective use of communication and information technology for business applications

-effective self-management in terms of time, planning and behaviour, motivation,

self-starting, individual initiative and enterprise QAA3.8

-work independently and manage time effectively;
- use different learning resources
Social

- interpersonal skills of effective listening, negotiating, persuasion and presentation

- ability to conduct research into business and management issues, either individually or as part of a team. This requires familiarity with and an evaluative approach to a range of business data,

sources of information and appropriate methodologies, and for such to inform the overall learning process QAA3.9

- self- reflection and criticality including self awareness, openness and sensitivity to diversity in terms of people, cultures, business and management issues.

-ability to work in a team to provide data for a presentation and report based assessment

7b: Tick one or more boxes as appropriate. For PG Modular Enrolment only: Birkbeck does not currently offer postgraduate level modules via the online modular booking and there is no award available for students taking individual PG modules.  If a student wants to take an individual PG module, they would have to submit an affiliate student application http://www.bbk.ac.uk/mybirkbeck/services/administration/enrolment/affiliate

7c: Open Enrolment/Restricted Enrolment/Subject to Placement Test should be detailed here. Most modules that are available to book individually will be open enrolment, but some are restricted to a specific group or have prerequisite modules. 'Subject to Placement Test' refers specifically to language modules which require a separate fee module to be set up to take payment prior to the test.

Subject Specific: The main areas of knowledge to be gained by the student, the understanding of the context in which this knowledge exists and the understanding of how this knowledge can be applied.

Intellectual: Reference should be made to evaluation, applications of theoretical understanding to work/life situations, critical reasoning, formulation and testing of hypotheses, problem solving, analytical skills, synthesis, the ability to study a problem in depth etc.

Practical: Research skills, laboratory skills, IT skills, numeracy skills, use of specialised statistical packages, ability to handle historical documents in a history programme, or other as appropriate.

Personal and Social: Skills that the student should be able to use in areas of life independent of the programme eg, communication skills, the ability to work independently, self-awareness, planning and organisational skills, continuous learning skills, presentational skills, teamwork or an increased awareness of ethical practice.

15

Self explanatory

16

Assessment methods should enable the student to demonstrate the learning outcomes for the module.

ALL elements of assessment must be listed (including those that are zero-weighted for purposes of calculating the overall final mark).

Title of Assessment: e.g. coursework essay, dissertation, project, examination (seen), examination (unseen), group assessment, presentation, portfolio, oral, viva, report (or other that may not be listed here). Weighting: percentage weighting the element contributes to the final module result. Characteristics: e.g. word count, submission date, duration of exam or other timed assessment

Pass requirements: e.g. all elements have to be passed; some elements must be passed as well as a pass overall; just a pass overall must be obtained.

Please list in chronological order – for completion statistics released by BSIS to the colleges funding authorities.
