    Hey guys
    I'm second year Marketing Management student at Lancaster Uni if anyone's got questions.

    Im in the middle of the ******* process of finding a placement

    Ego- CRUSHED
    Im hoping to start a marketing degree in Sep 2011. Been reading this book in my spare time:

    Foundation in marketing http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0...MZX4YBGA360RGB

    I was wondering if theres any good marketing books you used in your first year, that were really useful? As I wanted to get some background reading done in my spare time

    Thanks for any help or advice!

    I know this is not directly related to The Marketing Society, but did anyone watch 'The Peoples Supermarket' on Channel 4 tonight.

    Was really interesting, basically about a community based supermarket, where the shoppers become members of the supermarket, and even work for the supermarket.

    That's quite good for basics
    its a very thin book though
    Are you going to Lancaster or which uni?

    If you go to lancaster first year you will need
    Marketing Volume 1 + 2 by R Meek, A Ryan, and P Lenney (Paperback - 29 Aug 2009)

    This book is by the lecturers so you can buy it from the campus waterstones
    if not
    I like this one too

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0...CNGNSJT9G20T7D

    Hope this helps =]

    I think you would know by now if you got an assessment with them or not seeing as their assessments days have already started

    I've done the HBO application too

    I didn't watch it, sorry.
    Instead, I watched a short animation movie which depicts supermarkets of the future having guardians all over, traffic lanes, traffic lights and prices electronically controlled.Plus people who don't leave before the official closing time go to jail.
    Not so interesting..or is it?

    I'm sorry for delay, I didn't expect this thread to wake up such an interest and I didn't have time to join
