Any organisation of your choice) and your first set of actions would be to:
Critically analyse the internal and external marketing environment in which your organisation operates, the roles of marketing, and the interrelationships that exists between the roles, responsibilities and the marketing function of the organisation in the context of marketing environment. You must provide a valid and logical justification for the interrelationships.
You must now produce a strategic marketing plan that integrates the extended marketing mix and measures the achievement of marketing objectives within key performance indicators.
To inform this plan, you should first evaluate strategies and approaches to the marketing mix in achieving overall business objectives which will include a comparison with a business in the same sector of how the organisations apply the marketing mix to the marketing planning process.
Sequel to your marketing plan,
develop a valid and justified integrated marketing multimedia plan that helps to meet the marketing objectives of the chosen organisation using quantitative and qualitative criteria. Explain the role of marketing and how it interrelates with other business units of an organisation.

Any act of plagiarism and collusion will be seriously dealt with according to the regulations. In this context, the definition and scope of plagiarism are presented below:
‘Plagiarism occurs when a student misrepresents, as his/her own work, the work, written or otherwise, of any other person (including another student) or of any institution. Examples of forms of plagiarism include
the verbatim (word for word) copying of another’s work without appropriate and correctly presented acknowledgement;
the close paraphrasing of another’s work by simply changing a few words or altering the order of presentation, without appropriate and correctly presented acknowledgement;
unacknowledged quotation of phrases from another’s work; Explain the role of marketing and how it interrelates with other business units of an organisation.
The deliberate and detailed presentation of another’s concept as one’s own.’ Unit 2: Marketing Process Planning
All types of work submitted by students are covered by this definition, including, written work, diagrams, designs, engineering drawings and pictures.
‘Collusion occurs when, unless with official approval (e.g. in the case of group projects), two or more students consciously collaborate in the preparation and production of work which is ultimately submitted by each in an identical, or substantially similar, form and/or is represented by each to be the product of his or her individual efforts. Collusion also occurs where there is unauthorised co-operation between a student and another person in the preparation and production of work which is presented as the student’s own.’ (’Carroll, J and Appleton, J. (2001) Plagiarism – A Good Practice Guide. Oxford Brookes University/JISC, Oxford)
All work for assessment must be submitted with a Turnitin Report on plagiarism. The Maximum Turnitin score admissible is 15% (after deduction of 1% & 2% records). Assignments with more that this 15% score will be automatically referred for reworking and resubmission.
Any student might be called to seat through a viva with the lecturer to confirm any parts of the module through an interview which will then form part of the summative assessment.
To access any feedback (formative/summative) you will have to access Moodle and open your assignment. You will have to click on the blue comment box in the righthand side and the feedback will appear within the text. You might have to click on the blue bubbles to see the feedback.
