Teaching Marketing prompts the reader to reflect on why marketing is taught, how it is taught and what should be included in curricula in tertiary-level programmes. The international contributors have a wide range of expertise in marketing education and provide their own perspectives on these questions while considering a variety of different points of view so encouraging the reader to develop their own opinion.
Topics range from all-encompassing issues such as the importance of grounding marketing education on a sound ethical foundation, to focused explorations of how to teach subjects that marketing students typically find tricky, such as research methods, business-to-business marketing, and marketing science. The use of new classroom techniques such as business simulation games is also covered, as well as how to teach marketing theory and critical marketing.
With sound advice from experienced marketing educators at both curriculum and classroom level, this book will be essential for those looking for assistance with curriculum development and programme planning in marketing.
'Teaching Marketing is a valuable contribution to both curriculum development and the enhancement of teaching in marketing. The book is pertinent to the teaching of both advanced students and non-specialist groups. The chapters on the successful teaching of research methods and the use of simulations I find to be most insightful and helpful. Contributions from many highly respected and experienced marketing scholars make this something that all novice teachers of marketing should read, and which experienced teachers should review to refine their art. A valuable and timely contribution to marketing education.'

'Whether you are new to teaching marketing or have more experience than you want to admit, Teaching Marketing has something for you. The authors bring you back to the historical development of some marketing sub-disciplines, including more recent developments such as social marketing and the triple bottom line, and ground marketing concepts in their academic context. New instructors can find inspiration and contemporary techniques that are more palatable to today's students. A go-to reference manual to keep yourself motivated and your students engaged!'
