Stukent will promote the textbook March 26-29 at the 2020 American Academy of Advertising Annual Conference in San Diego. The book was also promoted at the 2020 American Marketing Association Winter Academic Conference.

“Advertising: Selling in Today’s World” provides students with up-to-date content framed by advertising trends that industry professionals implement every day. The textbook is part of a courseware package featuring real-world, in-class activities that build practical, hands-on skills and allow instructors to personalize their courses.

“We’ve built flexibility into this book,” coauthor Brian Sheehan said. “We understand that different professors teach courses in many different ways, so we created Video Case Studies, assignments, and quizzes that instructors can use however they’d like.”
