Brand audit project
You have to form a team of 3-4 students and pick a brand. The brand audit involves analyzing your brand, preparing a report (15 points) and a presentation (5 points) for the class indicated in the class schedule.. Each team will analyze a different brand. Please let me know about your decision by e-mail so that I can confirm your choice. The analysis will be based on secondary information available from public sources (at least 5 articles discussing the brand), company web sites. Conducting primary research is not required.

You can pick a brand you are familiar with or from the list of BrandZ’s Top 100 global brands or the Interbrand Top 100 brands.

Main questions:
1. Brand planning assessment:
Describe the brand elements (names, URL’s, logos, symbols, characters, slogans, jingles, packaging) How would you characterize the positioning of your brand? How positioning could be further enhanced? (5 points)
2. Brand building assessment:
How much resonance does your brand have? (Use the CBBE model). What have been the key marketing activities that have contributed to the success of your brand? (5 points)
3. Brand growth assessment
Analyze your brand’s architecture. What is good and bad about its hierarchy? How does it fit into a broader brand portfolio?
How well has it been expanded into new markets and channels? How would you judge its growth strategy? (5 points)

Time allocated for presentations will be 15 minutes followed by Q&A. All team members have to be present but not every team member has to speak. The report must be 10 pages long + exhibits (single-spaced, 12-point font). Reports should be uploaded to moodle until 01.12.2014, presentation slides should be uploaded the day before the presentation takes place.

Article presentation
The course builds on a rich collection of academic articles. The objective of studying these articles is to get students to familiarize with the mainstream topics in the branding literature. The article presentation should be prepared in teams of 3-4 students (same team as for the brand audit project)

Presentations should be structured as follows:

1. Summary of the article (5 points)
You have to give a relevant and interesting summary of the article supported by additional examples and/or visual material
2. Class discussion (5 points)
At different points of the presentation you are expected to engage the class in discussion by asking about opinions, personal experience/ readings, etc.
3. Group activity (5 points)
As part of the presentation develop a small group exercise that the participants will perform in class.

Maximum duration of the presentation is 40 minutes including summary, class discussion and group activity.

Presentations should be uploaded to Moodle the day before the presentation takes place.
In addition to the presentation you should also prepare a one page write-up of the article (5 points) and upload it to Moodle.

1. Participating in class discussion, and group activity
2. Providing feedback to the presenting team

Tananyag leírása: Brands represent invaluable assets for firms. Creating and maintaining strong brands are one of the main challenges that firms have to face. Managers’ interest in brand management has been apparent during the past decades despite the emergence of many new topics in marketing. The reason is related to the fact that brands are probably the most important strategic assets that are able to deliver long lasting competitive advantage for forms. On the other hand branding is an exciting field to study that incorporates multi-disciplinary approaches and requires complex thinking.
