Marketing Standards:*MARKETING education introduces students to the processes and functions involved in providing products or services that meet consumers’ wants and needs. As a major business function, marketing impacts both the domestic and International economies.Marketing exists within a dynamic environment of rapidly evolving technology and constant change, emerging interdependent nations and their economies, and increasing demands for ethical and social responsibility. These themes are fully developed and integrated within the major elements of marketing presented in these standards.The development of new marketing technologies (for example, fingerprint authentication and loyalty cards) is having a profound effect on how marketing is conducted and on how marketing plans are created. Internet technologies in particular have allowed companies to use one-on-one advertising and promotion to customers who register with their Web sites.
