RECOMMENDED TEXTBOOK

MRIA has adopted one textbook that can be used for this course and for 6 other MRIA Core courses:

Modern Marketing Research Step-by-Step by Chuck Chakrapani and Ken Deal
This book will form the foundation of seven MRIA Core courses as well as the Comprehensive Marketing Research Exam (CMRE). The text can be accessed online completely free of charge at any time – click here. A printable PDF version is also available for individual chapters as well as for the entire book for a small fee.

Complementary readings will be suggested by the instructors, when required. For those students who have already purchased Malhotra's Marketing Research – An Applied Orientation, be advised that it remains an excellent resource for most of the core modules and to prepare for the CMRE.
