Retail Marketing Management
‘Retail Marketing Management covers all the essential theories needed to understand the complicated business of retail: from understanding the consumer and purchasing of the product through to store layout and communications. The writing style is easy to follow, and the text is supported by diagrams and case studies which enhance understanding and learning. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about the retail business.’ Nicole Dunlop, Course Director, London College of Fashion, UK Retail Marketing offers a contemporary approach that combines retail marketing theory, current retail management practice and international examples. It begins by looking at the nature of retailing as an activity and then introduces retail marketing, followed by a discussion of consumer behaviour, the retail marketing mix, and other important issues such as location strategies, branding and ethics. The authors and expert contributors take an integrated approach to explaining the process of internationalisation, and the inclusion of international examples reinforces this approach. The book is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in retailing, as well as those studying for marketing and business degrees where retail marketing is a core module. The blend of retail theory, practice and live examples will also be of interest to practitioners in retailing and related industries.

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.
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.
