COURSE DESCRIPTIONS (for Special Topics & Seminar Classes Not in UTC's Main Class Schedule- MKT 5000, MKT 5660, MGT 5000.1)

 MGT 5000.1 (24915)- Global Management Consulting
The design of this course is to introduce graduate business students to the profession of management consulting as well as provide an overview of the global management consulting industry. This course is relevant to those students who may wish to pursue a career in management consulting.                              
MKT 5000.0 (25125)- Digital Marketing
While the world of “digital” is constantly changing, professional marketers are constantly trying to grasp how to strategically utilize digital tools to foster consumer community, limit crisis, and ultimately solidify brands in the consumer-empowered paradigm. This course will examine the shift of power from the boardroom to the living room through media such as blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and others with the goal of evaluating platforms against the organization’s marketing goals and objectives. In addition, the course material will explore the overall connection of other digital platforms such as mobile, search engine and email. This course will provide not only a theoretical basis for evaluating engagement activities but also a practical experience of the tools used by professional marketers today
MKT 5660.0 (20742)- Seminar in Marketing (Services Marketing)
MKT 5660 is an elective seminar course in services marketing for graduate business students. The course premise is that organizations whose core product is a service  (e.g., banks, utilities, hotels, hospitals, professional services, etc.) require a separate and distinct approach to marketing—both in strategy development and operational execution. In addition, manufacturers often provide service as part of their market offerings, requiring them to become proficient at delivering quality service. Great customer service can be an effective differentiation strategy for many firms, as seen by the success of companies such as L.L. Bean, Nordstrom, Federal Express, Amazon, Southwest Airlines, USAA, and others. Building strong customer relationships through quality service is at the heart of many organizations today, making service an essential  core competency. This course investigates topics such as the characteristics of services and service customers, customers’ service expectations, service quality, service operations, service recovery, customer satisfaction and complaint behavior, customer loyalty, and customer retention.
