Brand Management roles typically exist in consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies, service-based companies and, to a lesser extent, non-profits. Brand Managers are ¿mini-general managers¿ and have profit and loss accountability for the brand(s) they oversee. They develop marking plans, lead cross-functional teams within an organization (i.e. advertising, distribution, R&D) to ensure a brand¿s success in the marketplace and manage consumer impressions.
Corporate finance focuses on financial decisions made by a company to improve and maximize shareholder value while at the same time minimize risk. Managing a business¿s money, analyzing financial performance, assessing investment activities, improving revenue and cutting costs all fall under this umbrella.
