Contemporary Strategy Analysis
This established and popular text is regarded as one of the clearest and most comprehensive in its field. David Eadson has joined Jon Curwin and Roger Slater in the author team, and together they have sought to offer a more compact book with all the qualities of the previous six editions, whilst strengthening the links to online support materials. The new edition has been enhanced to reflect the latest learning plans and techniques, providing students with all the tools they need to pass the typical Quantitative Methods course. Each chapter focuses on a selection of statistical techniques, illustrated with examples from across business, marketing, economics, finance, and public administration, to appeal to students across the business spectrum. Whilst all core material is covered in the book itself, the online offering has been bolstered to include Parts 6-8 covering ‘Modelling’, ‘Mathematical Topics’ and ‘Student Guides’ respectively, in addition to a wide range of other resources including datasets and extra learning tools. Visual signposts throughout the text guide the student to the online platform to provide a seamless interaction between the two thus providing a multi-faceted learning experience. The wide-ranging coverage provided makes this the ideal text for the teaching of quantitative methods across all business disciplines at undergraduate, MBA, and post-experience levels. This textbook is autopackaged with CourseMate. CourseMate brings course concepts to life with interactive learning, study, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook and the textbook-specific website. CourseMate includes an integrated eBook and interactive teaching and learning tools including quizzes, flashcards, videos, and more and an EngagementTracker, a first-of-its-kind tool that monitors student engagement in the course.

Business Analysis and Valuation, Third IFRS Edition provides comprehensive coverage on how to use financial statement data in a variety of business analysis and valuation contexts. The text’s key strength is that it both offers a framework for business analysis and valuation but also shows how this framework can be applied in a variety of decision-making contexts. The text is thoroughly IFRS based. For example, the chapters on accounting analysis prepare students for the task of analyzing IFRS-based financial statements; all numerical examples of accounting adjustments describe adjustments to IFRS-based financial statements; and the terminology used throughout is IFRS-consistent. Business Analysis and Valuation, Third IFRS Edition is ideal for modules in financial statement analysis taken by MBA students, Masters in Accounting students, Executive Program participants and upper level undergraduates in accounting and finance.
This 13th edition of Lesikar’s Business CommunicationDigital World, by Kathryn Rentz, and Paula Lentz brings the contemporary perspective of two expert teachers to Ray Lesikar’s classic textbook. Taking a unique problem-solving approach, it integrates current technologies and trends throughout, while maintaining an emphasis on the fundamentals: careful analysis of the communication problem, development of an audience-focused solution, and clear, correct use of language and visuals. Combined with abundant realistic examples, exercises, and cases, this approach makes Lesikar one of the most pedagogically effective books in the field.
Essentials of Business Statistics: Communicating with Numbers is a core statistics textbook that sparks student interest and bridges the gap between how statistics is taught and how practitioners think about and apply statistical methods. Throughout the text, the emphasis is on communicating with numbers rather than on number crunching. By incorporating the perspective of professional users, the subject matter is more relevant and the presentation of material more straightforward for students.
