HOPE COLLEGE MMP
Marketing Management Practicum
= COMPLEX PROBLEMS
One of the trademarks of our liberal arts view of management education is that we understand many of the important problems faced as being significantly multi-faceted. In management, we believe that there are not economicsproblems, or psychologyproblems, or accountingproblems... there are just problems and multiple ways to view them. MMP projects are sufficiently complex to mirror the complexity our students will face in the workplace.
HOPE COLLEGE MMP
ELEGANT SOLUTIONS
Few things in management are less helpful than overly complex solutions which remain unimplemented. We therefore push our students to be elegant and parsimonious in their offerings to the client. We emphasize that good solutions are credible and clever in their offering. We also stress that good problem solvers are continually thinking about what best solves the issues they are dealing with, all the while doing so with a goal of on-time implementation, operating within budget, and customized to the organization given the resources available.
JOINT BENEFIT
While we care deeply about our students, we also care deeply about business and the communities our businesses serve. Thus, while it is most important that our students come away with a more refined aptitude for solving complex problems with elegant solutions, we are also motivated to help the organizations who come to Hope MMP for work. The creation of joint benefit for both students and business is our end goal.

PROJECTSTRUCTURE
Hope Colleges marketing management course is a learning experience centered around marketing, but one also buttressed by an overarching strategic approach.In other words, if marketing is at its core about “satisfying customer needs and wants through an exchange process,” as the marketing guru Philip Kotler suggests, we believe thinking strategically about marketing is in the end about knowingwhich customer needs in a competitive marketplace are worth pursuing,whythis is the case, andhowto best achieve those objectives. To do this, students are guided to think critically about: I. TheIndustry II. TheCompetitors III. Differentiation
INDUSTRYWhat is the structure of the industry in which this firm competes?
Michael Porters Five Forces Model of Competition and other game theoretic models help outline the structure of an industry-- both in its general profitability, and also by outlining the spaces in the industry where there are pockets of profitability and strategic sustainability. Before students are even aware of who the main client is, we push them to deeply understand the industry in which they will be doing work.
COMPETITORS
Who are this firms primary competitors, what customer segments do they intend to serve, and what are their distinct brand promises?
Similar to the benefits of understanding the structure of an industry with nuance, deeply understanding competitors helps students better understand who each firms focal client is, how each
firm is seen in the eyes of the customer with regards to differentiation, and whether there are differences between the groups... all with an eye towards seeing the best potential space to compete.
DIFFERENTIATION
Given the industry and the competitors, what is the best way to leverage the clients distinctive offering relative to its competitors within this industry, what customer does the client most centrally serve, and how might the client most effectively create relationships with this customer?
Finally, we push our students to understand the focal firms brand promise and targeted segment of customers, integrating throughout insights from the industry and competitor analysis all with the end goal of shaping the relevant marketing variable(s) in question (Product, Price, Promotion, Placement). Throughout, students are pushed to be elegant in their solutions-- credible and clever in delivery.

ZIPMENTS: Worked with start-up firm Zipments-- a start-up crowdsourcing logistics model-- to develop a set of tactical strategies for promoting the company in preparation for the launch of their internet service.

The marketing students' feedback was based on empirical data they collected over the semester and provided a good framework for us to build our subsequent marketing plan.”
