What We've Heard

As a marketing practitioner and adjunct faculty member, I have been frustrated by limited and dated textbooks. In a field where standards are changing constantly, it is time-consuming to create original content that's current and relevant. I am excited that West End is making learning resources more easily accessible. I could see this replacing textbooks completely for upper level courses.
