If you know my history, then you know that I “fell into” my first job in brand licensing while working at The Coca-Cola Company. Despite having earned an MBA, I had never heard of the brand licensing industry and had no idea how it worked. Since that time everyone I have spoken to who works in the licensing industry has shared a similar story. These were professionals that worked for Disney, Warner Brothers, Mattel, Hasbro, the NFL, MLB, FIFA World Cup, the Olympics and a host of other topnotch companies. Given its breadth and depth, this does not make sense to me. As such, I have made it my personal mission to help rectify this.

In the spring of 2018, I developed a Brand Expansion course designed for BBA and MBA programs using Expand, Grow, Thrive as the textbook. The course introduces students to the LASSO methodology and a wide range of concepts designed to enhance their knowledge and comprehension of brand expansion, extension and licensing. While designed for full-time students, this course is also suitable for executive education.

The Stetson School of Business and Economics at Mercer University was the first to adopt my course. There, I taught the course and exposed my students to the $330 billion global brand licensing industry.

“When I first signed up for Pete’s Brand Licensing Course, I was very intimidated. Here I was, an undergrad student, days away from taking a course with an expert instructor and author on a topic I knew nothing about. Honestly, I wanted to retreat as quickly as possible, but Pete assured me that he designed this course for experts and non-experts alike; he was right. Pete made learning fun with real-life examples and case studies that sparked my interest in brand expansion, extension, and licensing. An entire world I never knew existed was revealed to me and inspired me to pursue a career path in this field. By the end of the course, not only did I know about the LASSO Method and how to use it, but I felt like a brand licensing expert. If I had the chance to retake this course, I would jump at the opportunity.”
