Course Description & Objectives

Social marketing is a discipline that focuses on using commercial marketing concepts and techniques to influence behavior for delivering positive impacts for the society. This discipline has been making profound contributions to social issues in the areas of public health, injury prevention, community involvement, and more recently, financial well-being. It is of particular relevance to Hong Kong or any other societies that is experiencing social challenges in the quest for sustainable growth. Students will be exposed to different social issues. Through a mix of lectures, class discussions, case discussions and group projects, students will learn the social marketing concepts, tools and strategies to address different social issues. This course is offered in the spirit of taking responsibility for ourselves as well as caring for those around us. It therefore targets at students who are concerned about social issues and passionate about bringing positive influence to the society.

1. Explain the role of social marketing and give examples of how the basic marketing knowledge can influence positive public behavior;

2. Use a logical and systematic approach to analyze the social issues and the environment;

3. Apply the social marketing theories and techniques to develop, implement and evaluate a social marketing campaign;

4. Work effectively as a team to convey project findings and recommendations as well-reasoned and fully substantiated managerial judgments with confidence and conviction.

Measurement of Learning Outcomes

1. Final exam measures students’ knowledge of social marketing.

2. Class discussions and individual report measures students’ ability to apply appropriate concepts and theories to analyze social issues, and the ability to criticize different social marketing campaigns.

3. Group social marketing projects measure students’ analyzing skills by requiring them to apply social marketing concepts to analyze real-world social issues in Hong Kong. Students are also required to develop a comprehensive social marketing plan for improving the identified social issues.
