NSU’s Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship Launches Marketing Blog

LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – The Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is pleased to announce that  Real-World Marketing Ideas and Strategies is now live and available for use by students, alumni and the business community. The blog is a go-to learning and engagement tool about the latest thinking in marketing.

“Blogs are becoming more widely used by colleges and universities as part of teaching and communication processes,” said Art Weinstein, Ph.D., professor of marketing and chairman of the department. “This is especially important when it comes to millennials who are technology-savvy, social media-dependent, and are fully immersed in accessing information in shorter forms rather than traditional book readings or journal articles.”

This digital resource provides strategic insights by NSU marketing faculty who are renowned scholars, textbook authors, consultants and corporate executives. Weinstein, who created the blog explains, “Our professors blend relevant academic concepts with the best business practices. Our readers will be impressed by the information posted on the blog – it’s fresh, interesting, research-based, cutting edge and most useful for staying ahead of today’s marketing challenges and opportunities.”

Real-World Marketing Ideas and Strategies is a business school differentiator and strong vehicle to share knowledge, communicate, and dialogue with stakeholders, according to Preston Jones, D.B.A., dean of the Huizenga College of Business.

He added, “As the late Peter Drucker said, ‘Business is all about marketing and innovation.’ Our marketing blog is another value-added offering for our M.B.A. and B.S. Marketing students as well as our valued business partners. I personally read and benefit from this blog and believe our stakeholders will, too.”

New blog posts are published every two weeks on the 1st and 15th of the month with a rich archival library of more than 30 items on advertising, branding, business models, customer value, entrepreneurial marketing, segmentation, social media, and much more. The Fall and Winter line-up includes the following topics:  big data, college student satisfaction, customer experience, influencers in social media, Midas touch selling, mobile advertising, personalized advertising, real-world branding, self-branding, social marketing, retail shake-out and the value of segmentation.
