After a long and distinguished career, Louis E. "Gene" Boone passed away just before the publication of the 13th edition of CONTEMPORARY MARKETING. Over the years, students and colleagues at the University of Tulsa and the University of South Alabama and other schools in the U.S., Australia, and Europe were fortunate to be influenced by Gene's insights. Many marketing instructors knew Gene through his distinguished career and remember the numerous contributions that he made to business education. Gene was a pioneer of the marketing discipline and arguably the best and most creative business writer of his generation.

Dr. David L. Kurtz has taught at a number of major U.S. and foreign universities and has co-authored best-selling books with Dr. Louis E. Boone. Their publications have been translated into Chinese, French, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish. Dr. Kurtz has lectured extensively throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. He attended Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, West Virginia, before entering the graduate business school at the University of Arkansas, where he met Dr. Gene Boone. As longtime co-authors, Dr. Boone and Dr. Kurtz wrote more than 50 books. In addition to writing, the two served as partners in several entrepreneurial ventures. Today, Dr. Kurtz teaches at the University of Arkansas after duty tours in Ypsilanti, Michigan; Seattle; and Melbourne, Australia. He is the proud grandfather of five and a sportsman with a golfing handicap too high to mention. Dr. Kurtz, his wife Diane and four demanding canine companions (Daisy, Lucy, Molly and Sally) live in Rogers, Arkansas. Dr. Kurtz holds a distinguished professorship at the Sam M. Walton College of Business in nearby Fayetteville, home of the Arkansas Razorbacks.

  • You Make the Decision: Students are put in the shoes of a marketer in these interactive, media-rich activities. Following a scenario related to course content covered so far, students are presented with decision points as they progress through this interactive activity. Every decision a student makes impacts the outcome of the scenario, creating a unique marketing experience for each student. Appearing at the end of each part, these activities act as a summative opportunity, ultimately aiding students in connecting concepts from multiple lessons.
  • EMPOWER YOUR STUDENTS TO REACH THEIR POTENTIAL. Distinct metrics give you actionable insights into student engagement. Identify topics troubling your entire class and instantly communicate with struggling students. And students can track their scores to stay motivated toward their goals. Together, you can accelerate progress.
  • “In the News”: At the end of the full learning path are chapter-specific, current articles written by marketing instructors that automatically feed/flow in to the learning path throughout the semester. These current events help students relate to concepts and see them applied in the real world while saving instructors time spent seeking out articles that apply to specific concepts.
  • MindTap is an outcome-driven application that propels students from memorization to mastery. It’s the only platform that gives you complete ownership of your course. With it, you can challenge every student, build their confidence, and empower them to be unstoppable.

  • Marketing Plan Assignments: These flexible, modular assignments at the part level allow you to assign a complete marketing plan in stages – or pick only specific sections to assign.

  • Spark Interest: Students learn how multi-faceted marketing is – that it’s not just common sense. By reading through scenarios and real-world examples, students learn more about the impact that marketing can have on other fields.
  • Adaptive Test Prep: Students often experience high anxiety around exams, and many of their study tools are at the chapter level. By covering multiple chapters and including questions similar to those they’ll see on an exam, students can use Adaptive Test Prep to prepare more efficiently, review areas requiring additional study, and be more confident about exam performance.
