In many organizations, each brand or product is managed as an independent business with a brand manager having profit and loss responsibility. While brand managers generally focus on consumer marketing efforts, they are also responsible for coordinating all aspects of the business: research and development, manufacturing, distribution, pricing, advertising and promotion, market research, and business and sales analysis.

Olin suggests a marketing curriculum that you might find useful if you plan a career in brand management. We believe that maximum value can be derived from the brand management concentration by pursuing the primary electives and then supplementing those with additional suggested electives.
