In Australia and New Zealand there are a number of factors affecting marketing education, these include; decreased government funding, larger class sizes, increased international numbers, research quality assessments, technology and learning style issues as well as more outcome focused education. There also is an increased institutional and governmental interest in systematic research focusing on educational issues, as a mechanism to improve educational delivery and processes.

The Journal of Marketing Education is the leading international scholarly journal devoted to issues in marketing education.
