Debra Zahay, David Altounian, Wesley Pollitte & Juli James (2018) EFFECTIVE RESOURCE DEPLOYMENT IN DIGITAL MARKETING EDUCATION, Marketing Education Review, DOI: 10.1080/10528008.2018.1555000
This article outlines how resource deployment from the top down can provide support for faculty seeking to implement a marketing curriculum that is focused on teaching digital marketing. Data from this exploratory study suggest that if the higher administration, particularly the dean, is familiar with what happens in the digital marketing classroom, then faculty are more likely to be supported financially.
