Contemporary Marketing, 18/e (IE-Paperback)【內含Access Code,經刮除不受退】
Louis E. Boone , David L. Kurtz
The 18th edition of Contemporary Marketing is more than an incremental update. It's a full-fledged reimagining of what an introduction to marketing course can be. Based on extensive industry research, student feedback, and collaboration with marketing subject matter experts nationwide, we made a number of improvements, including:
Focus on application-based learning
Our goal is for students to "learn it today and use it tomorrow." Content is focused on practical, real-world skills that marketing professionals use on a regular basis.
The focus for this edition is on depth, not breadth. Rather than introduce an overly broad array of topics, we utilized industry research to choose the most relevant and current concepts--then we deep dive on those to provide students a thorough understanding of each. The result is that students learn more in less time.
Opening and closing examples
Each section features opening and closing examples that tie directly to the learning objective and demonstrate the concepts in action. This format increases comprehension and retention of the core content.
Each chapter ends with a short activity that reinforces specific learning from the chapter, further reinforcing comprehension and retention.
Updated examples and content presentation
Examples throughout the text have been researched and refreshed to reflect current trends in marketing and business. In addition, content order was revised to better align with best practices in both the marketing field and the marketing classroom.
