Welcome to the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association (MRIA) online training course, 'Market Intelligence'. 

This online training course contains 9 modules that are each followed by a quiz and Final Test. 

Market intelligence is the "new" market research – it goes beyond traditional qualitative and quantitative research, and encompasses understanding a powerful collection of internal and external information, and using analytical techniques to analyze that information. Market intelligence, done well, plays a key role in corporate decision making. Becoming competent in the market intelligence area means that market researchers elevate their position, and use a broad range of business consultative skills. This course will provide a managerial level understanding of the basics of MI, and the tools and techniques to undertake it effectively.

Market intelligence comes from the strategic use of a carefully analyzed collection of key information. It is imperative to better decision making, success, and even survival for firms today. Interest and investment in market intelligence is increasing, as firms see its power and benefit. Solid market intelligence can dramatically impact a company's success. A client firm that embraces business intelligence uses it at all levels of the organization fostering a culture where everyone thinks "intelligence", and contributes to its evolution. A research firm that offers the enhanced service of MI offers better value to their client.

Major topics covered in this course:

  • Understanding the power of market intelligence, and how it incorporates marketing research
  • Creating intelligence teams and building an intelligence culture
  • Developing market intelligence skills, and an MI toolbox

  • Applying analytical tools and techniques and using them to analyze and process information
