Collaboration. Value Creation
Never content to rest on our laurels, during 2009 and 2010 we undertook a rigorous revision of the 4th Australian edition of Principles of Marketing. We collaborated with a total of 63 academics who reviewed, critiqued and provided suggestions to evolve the 5th Australian edition into an unsurpassed teaching and learning solution. We also collaborated with students who helped design the new cover. Click here to find out more about the collaborative cover creation process.
The 5th edition of Principles of Marketing makes the road to learning and teaching marketing more effective, easier, and more enjoyable than ever. Its streamlined approach strikes a careful balance between depth of coverage and ease of learning.
The 5th edition’s brand new learning design—with an integrative Concept Map at the start of each chapter, and insightful author comments throughout—enhances student understanding. When combined with a completely new MyMarketingLab, our online homework study tool, Principles of Marketing ensures that your students will come to class well prepared and leave class with a richer understanding of core marketing concepts, strategies, and practices.
