Barron’s Business Review Series - All books in this series
In Professor Richard Sandhusen’s brand-new and important fourth edition of Marketing, he points out how four digital-age systems have merged into one to change marketing and management practice as much in the past five years as in the previous half century. These systems—decision support, relationship marketing, integrated marketing communication, and balanced scorecard—are barely noted in competing textbooks, but receive detailed analysis in this extensively updated book, a popular title in Barron’s respected Business Review Series. Placing emphasis on the global marketplace Marketing presents a highly realistic hypothetical company as it faces business challenges and opportunities on a day-by-day basis. Although solidly grounded in marketing theory, this book explains marketing strategies within this realistic setting, showing many of the business tactics and decisions students are likely to confront in their own careers. The fictitious company’s domestic and international marketing strategies are explained and analyzed, and real-world examples of successful marketing campaigns by different kinds of companies are also included. Each chapter ends with an overview of essential concepts and match-up exercises that review the text’s material.
