Tutor information is taken from the Module Catalogue
As this module spans two areas, marketing and design, there is no single textbook which comprehensively covers the entire programme so some reading will be distributed to you in class.
Recommended (but not required) for purchase:
Keller, Kevin Lane (2019). Strategic Brand Management: Building, Measuring and Managing Brand Equity − Global Edition (5th edition), Pearson
A comprehensive text giving in-depth coverage. Focus is international, rather than purely European.
