You are invited to attend the (TSI), a meeting for entrepreneurs and marketing execs (also known as MKT501). Use this forum to discuss a product or service you wish to launch. Click the list of recommended products/service areas. It is acceptable to create a small service-oriented business that is unique to your geographic area.
During class, you will develop a comprehensive strategic marketing plan; TSI provides a unique opportunity to share with peers and evolve your ideas. While the business you will work with may not be real, the research, application, and competitive analysis used in the class will be.
The list is divided into categories that reflect career paths followed by many students. It allows you to pick a product that can work for your future or current profession. If you would like to choose a product or service not listed above, you must receive faculty approval early in week 1. If you did not get approval prior to posting, you may need to redo the work.
During this class, you will be working progressively with a product/service of your creation. Prior to selecting a topic and starting on the assignments, you should review the other units. This will help you to select an appropriate product/service with which to work.
Be sure to pick a product or service that is ready to market. If you are developing a new product (or service), assume that it is beyond the development phase ready for the marketplace.
