The Study of Marketing in Schools of Forestry
Abstract:Companies today are looking for foresters with more training in marketing. The author analyzes the extent to which marketing is taught in the forestry curriculum and describes the topic areas covered, teaching methods and course material used, and the extent to which business schools contribute to the forestry student's training in marketing. Future trends in this field are also noted. The article is based on a recent questionnaire survey of 72 forestry professors in 45 different forestry schools, as well as on interviews with executives in major forest products companies.
