The purpose of this course is to provide an understanding of how marketing activities, such as branding, promotion, channel contracting strategies can contribute to the creation of shareholder value.
Marketing has traditionally focused on activities that enhance customer satisfaction and increase market share. In this course we view marketing activities as market based assets that directly influence the expected returns and the volatility in these returns. Understanding the relationship between marketing activities and expected return and volatility in return, will allow students to understand the link between marketing and financial performance. This course will also briefly discuss the implications of machine learning and fintech in the marketing-finance interface.
