Of Marketing and Men

My first play on words of the new year

My first play on words of the new year

This semester I’m all registered to take a course titled Principles of Marketing. Classes won’t start until January 24th but I am already a fan of this class for three reasons…

It’s a bargain.  I’m fortunate that the UCONN bachelor’s program I am in allows for a certain percentage of classes to be taken at its’ affiliated partner community colleges.  These community colleges charge a fraction of the course that UCONN does and the only requirement is that you receive pre-approval from your advisor.  I keep my UCONN undergraduate status AND I keep an extra 1,100 in my wallet this spring! And what college student do you know that couldn’t use an extra grand…even us old timers.

It’s all on-line.  While I enjoyed some parts of being back in the classroom on Saturday mornings and feeling like a co-ed again, some of you remember my struggle with patience. For those who don’t want to revisit that blog entry, I will summarize in 5 words….I don’t suffer fools well…or frankly, not at all.

It’s got win-win potential.  I hope I haven’t misled anyone by thinking that I am returning to college because I really love studying and school.  The truth is I hate both.  I’m going back to school to finish what I started but more importantly to get promoted within my industry.  BUT, and here’s where this class gets interesting, perhaps “Marketing” can take on a secondary more personal meaning.   I find myself back on the “market” again in my personal life; so perhaps the same principles of marketing mix and distribution strategies may also apply to a world I reluctantly return to…that of dating.

It may be a stretch for me to think that this course may in any way at all help me wade through the markets of men; but how fun will it be to see exactly how many times I can weave my dating (or lack thereof) life into this semester and how creative I can be with my shameless play on words.

It’s a new year, I feel hopeful, so I’ll ask in advance that you cut me some slack.
