About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will gain an understanding of how to build, incentivize, and redesign efficient and effective routes-to-market for products and services via the use of intermediaries such as wholesalers, retailers, and a range of possible channel partners. Through the use of lectures, case studies, and guest speakers, learners will be able to assess, evaluate, and recommend changes to build, improve, and revise new and existing channel strategies.
New sources of value, outside of the traditional product and service offering, are identified that better accommodate and ultimately optimize "how the customer wants to buy." Strategies for improving purchase convenience, service offerings, and information at the right place and time across omnichannel settings are identified and critiqued.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
