Course overview.

Market research is an invaluable part of, not just product marketing but, the overall organizational function. It helps us to understand what prompts the customer to purchase products within the market and, ultimately, identify how we can position our products in such a way that they stand out from the crowd. 

Our Market Research Certified: Masters course has been designed to go deeper into how to conduct market research, the types of market research you can implement (primary and secondary market research, quantitative and qualitative market research, and so on), and how to effectively carry our market research analysis. 

Essentially, this course will equip you with practical and actionable advice, tools, knowledge, and skill set necessary to understand these aspects, completely streamline your approach for success, and make your life just that much easier.

What you can expect from Market Research Certified

"The course made me realize that, even though 'Discover' is the first step in the PMM framework, we tend to forget about it and focus on everything else. Going through the rich materials and insights this course provided had me rethinking priorities and has put the research back where it belongs, to the foundation of our PMM work."
