MARKET ECONOMY
In a market economy goods and services produced must be distributed, advertised, transported, stored and sold. Marketing performs this complex function. This term means the movement of products and services from manufacturer to customer in order to achieve the goals of the company. The Four P's: product, price, placement and promotion play an important role in providing successful marketing operation. The product element of marketing involves products or services that a company wants to sell. This process supposes market research and development of a new commodity (ie testing its quality and introduction to the market).
A company next decides what price to charge for its product. There exist three pricing options it can take: above, with, or below the prices its competitors are charging. Most companies sell their producers in the industry (or by price leaders).
Placement, the third element of the marketing process, deals with delivering goods to customers through channels of distribution (manufacturer-> wholesaler-> retailer-> customer).
Finally, promotion (communication between buyer and seller) takes place. It can be executed through personal selling or through advertising. These four P's of marketing work together to satisfy customers and achieve the company's objectives.
It is management that serves these purposes today. Management refers to the work of planning, organizing, directing, controlling and forecasting.
Planning implies determining overall company objectives and finding the ways to achieve them. It is considered to be the most important function of management as the others depend on it.

The Moscow State University of Printing Arts, established in 1930, is the largest institution of its kind in Russia, with nearly 6,000 students on its roll. With 35 departments and more than 400 professors, readers and lecturers, the University could well be the biggest printing institute in the world.
The University is strong in the academic sphere and considerable stress is given to theoretical grounding, especially in the degree and postgraduate courses.
The University has large laboratories and machine and binding shops for practical training of the students. Computers have been introduced and their use is increasing. For generating much-needed funds the Rector has embarked on several innovative schemes with the dual objective of improving the financial status of the University as well as developing training facilities in the Institute.
Rank Xerox has set up a large training centre for their customers in the premises for which they pay rent to the University and also extend training facilities to the students. A separate section, called Pronto Print, with a high-speed newspaper rotary press has been installed almost exclusively for printing a commercial daily newspaper. The University also runs a commercial publishing house called The World of Books.
Close cooperation exists between the University and key research institutions. The University entered into an agreement of a fruitful cooperation with Bergische University, Wuppertal, Germany.
