The purpose of the Marketing Audit is for class participants to apply the principles of
the course to a specific firm (business or strategic business unit). The audit will
examine your firms level of knowledge and sophistication with the use of customer
analysis, with an understanding of market conditions and structure, and with the
overall marketing process. One grade will be issued to the team. Students are
encouraged to analyze a firm or a business they or someone they know is in. If
necessary, the presentation will remain confidential. While not required, students are
encouraged to share their findings with the appropriate people in the firm. The team
will have 20 minutes (including Q&A) for their presentation.
Please supply one electronic copy (by e-mail) and hard two copies of your PowerPoint
