Each student will select from the list of brands to do a deep dive through the course. Brand signup is to be done through the people tab on Canvas. Through research, including a thorough review of the brand’s consumer-facing messaging, including its website and social media, as well as any consumer reviews or comments about the brand, students will infer the brand’s strategy and make recommendations on how better to tap into consumer insights. No additional outside research is required or will be accepted.
Students should use the Canadian consumer-facing website and social media analysis, and should only incorporate the US site if directed there from the Canadian site.
