    A brand is the most valuable asset for a company, and successful branding is at the heart of a company’s marketing activities. A brand serves as a face and uniquely differentiates one company’s offering from others. For instance, competing firms can easily copy manufacturing process and products design, but it is not easy to create firm belief and attitudes in the consumer mind. For that reason, companies invest an incredible amount of resources in developing their brands over time. Thus it is imperative for you as future managers to understand the theories, concepts and principles of brand management in your formidable task of managing brands. In this course, we will examine how to do marketing from a branding perspective. Specifically, you will learn the following:
- Understand branding related concepts, such as brand equity, and the advantages of creating a strong brand. - How to develop a brand? - How to design and implement brand marketing activities and programs? - How to measure and interpret brand performance? - How to grow and sustain the brand? - How to manage brand at digital space?
