Communicating to the world

Marketing is the delivery of customer satisfaction at a profit

The most basic concept underlying marketing is the human need, which is a felt deprivation. These include both physical needs for food, clothing, warmth, safety, and social needs for belonging, knowledge and self-expression. These needs haven’t been identified by marketers, they are physiological needs which every human being feels.

Wants are the form that human needs take as they are shaped by culture and individual personality. For example, the need for food is felt by every human being, but an American snacks on a burger, fries and soft-drink, whilst an Italian may opt for a pizza and fizzy water, the French opt for a baguette, cheese and a glass of wine, the Chinese look for noodles and the Maltese would yearn for a couple of pastizzi and a Kinnie®. Each nationality, through cultural development, opt to satisfy their needs through different instinctive actions.

People have almost unlimited wants but limited resources. People wish to choose products that provide the most value and satisfaction for their money. When backed by buying power, wants become demands. Customers view products as bundles of benefits and choose products that give them the best bundle for their money. This takes us back to the development process of an innovative product, with the core product or service tackling the main benefits to the prospective customer, and the actual product being made up of bundled features which together with the augmented features to the product, make an attractive proposition at the right (profitable to the business) price to the customer who is seeking value for money.

BSc (Hons) Business Administration with Marketing

Graduate by the University of London under the academic leadership of the Royal Holloway, University of London.

Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education is an Affiliate of the University of London and for these past seventeen years has been accepting Maltese and international students to read for their University of London degrees at the Institute. Thus, Maltese students have the advantage of reading for a world renowned University of London (a reputable seat of learning for over two centuries) without having to live in London and commit substantial expense for tuition fees and living expenses, but can read for the degree in the environment they are used to. International students on the other hand, whilst still having to relocate, find tuition fees and living costs cheaper in Malta.

The degree is a three academic year and you graduate with honours to be offered this October 2017. Students will be exposed to all the fundamental subjects that make for a well-rounded undergraduate degree in Marketing, including hands on experience with digital marketing and e-business in our creative computing lab, mentored by experienced media experts.
