The secret of success in today’s hyper-competitive market lies in the ability to understand and predict the moves and responses of the players and in the quality of the management of the efforts to satisfy the needs and wishes of the consumers the organization has chosen to serve.  In other words, the organization faces the challenge of creating and transmitting value to the consumer in a manner that is more effective than that of its competitors and translates into profitability commensurate with the value received by the consumer.

Marketing management is one of LAHAV’s most important and long-standing programs of study.  Designed for managers who have practical experience of the field but lack formal education in marketing management, it deals with all the main issues, from the stage of collecting essential information, through decision making, and up to the stage of translating decisions into actual marketing.  The program consists of lectures by the leading academics, practitioners and consultants in the field, who present the classical and modern models of marketing management, lead discussions on case studies, and open a window to the complexities of managing marketing in today’s world.  Participants are required to submit homework assignments on various issues.
