Students applied knowledge learned from Brand Management such as the six factors forming a brand, the IMC strategy, the SWOT matrix to analyze characteristics of community units, propose promotion and marketing ideas. Additionally, they experienced directly intriguing and rewarding activities with support from community partners. All of which helped students to create such compelling marketing plans to present at the session. 
Listening to the ideas, Ms. Dung – representative of Ibsen Tiny Stage gladly said: “I was taken aback by the creativity and insight of the students. They came up with such interesting issues that had escaped Ibsen’s notice. This will benefit the development of Ibsen Tiny Stage in the future.”

Lessons learned in class now include not only theoretical knowledge but also hands-on experience," said Mr. Nhan Cam Tri.
