Mock Live Class with Professor Hayden Noel: "How to Extend your Brand to Enhance its Value"

In this mock class, Professor Noel will lead an interactive session that will mimic what one of our high-engagement live classes looks like here at Gies. He currently teaches BADM 520, where he introduces concepts useful in understanding marketing systems and buyer behavior in addition to developing skills in making marketing decisions. When trying to enhance brand equity, one growth strategy companies pursue is via a brand extension. This involves assigning the brand name to a product in a different category. While this can be a very successful strategy, if done appropriately, it can be risky as well. In this lecture, Prof. Noel will present a framework that would help you evaluate the chances of success for a proposed extension. You will get the opportunity to develop an extension with other attendees.
