Marketing Management:

A Contemporary Perspective

Year of Publication: 2012 (2nd Edition)

Author: Christian Homburg, Sabine Kuester, Harley Krohmer
Publisher: Mcgraw-Hill Education Ltd

ISBN: 978-0-077-14604-7

As a Master student of Business Administration specialized in marketing, this book has proved to be a valuable companion throughout my studies. Not only when preparing for exams, but recently with regard to writing my thesis. I used this book as a basis to develop theoretical foundations of the strategic and institutional perspectives of marketing. Peppered with best practice examples, the textbook is a must have for scholars, and anyone interested in marketing.
I also tutor in marketing and have found the book provides a great reference for lesson planning due to graphs, key terms, references and relevant case studies with questions for discussions.
