Free textbooks available to students in Fisher’s Marketing Research and Analytics course 

MBA students taking Marketing Research and Analytics 7201 will receive their textbook free of charge.

Award-winning marketing professor, Greg Allenby, Helen C. Kurtz Chair in Marketing, the co-author of “Seven Summits of Marketing Research,” is making his newly published textbook available for free as a downloadable ebook. Allenby also teaches the course.

The book is available on the "Seven Summits" page on Fisher’s web site and also on Ohio State’s new Digital First, an online and mobile learning environment. Both Allenby’s book and Ohio State’s Digital First were born when faculty started redesigning the curriculum as part of the university’s transition from quarters to semesters. "Seven Summits" was selected as one of the first books to premiere on Digital First.
