MKTG 475 Innovation and Product Management (3)
This course is designed to provide students the opportunity to examine and understand the new product development process. It takes the process from the strategy and ideation stage to the after-market product launch. The course blends the perspectives of marketing, management, and engineering into a single approach to product development. It provides students with an appreciation for the realities of industrial new product development practice. Therefore, case studies and other in-class assignments are designed in a way that students can apply the theoretical/abstract concepts to the real life phenomenon. The new product development projects are assigned to teams in real life, students have the opportunity to complete the case analyses and assignments in teams. Course aims to integrate micro level new product development issues (e.g., firm-level product strategy) to macro level issues (e.g., anti-trust regulations and legislations).
