This module will cover the fundamentals of brand DNA/identity development, needs-based segmentation, psychological and social anthropological consumer insighting and research and archetypal branding. The students will imbibe these while learning and practicing the innovation process, mentored and guided by experienced brand strategists and human scientists (i.e. psychologists and social anthropologists). At the end of the module, the participants will have a well-developed Brand Identity Strategy design that will cover their brand's positioning strategy, personality, values, mission and vision. The Brand Identity Strategy will also include their newfound insights on their consumers and competitors.

At the heart of Mosule 1 is a new and effective framework to discovering the real motivations behind customer behavior. This new framework combines the collective knowledge and experiences of international and local brand strategist, psychologist and socio-cultural scientists.
