Postgraduate Faculty of Business and Economics

Leader: Dr David Stewart


Caulfield Winter semester 2007 (On-campus)


Research in Marketing is often taught as a highly theoretical process, with an assumption that once the problem or issue has been determined, it is then possible to undertake the research with little further consideration. In fact the design, execution and dissemination of research are of the utmost importance. Many well founded research projects fail at the implementation stage and much valuable research fails to be fully disseminated regardless of its value. This unit focuses upon the requirements for undertaking applied marketing research. The unit is intended to provide a practical insight into marketing research through cases studies, exercises, and presentations.

Case analysis (2000 words): 30%
Written assignment (3000 words): 30%
