As the venerable source of business news, AMA chapter updates and case studies from the best minds in the industry, Marketing News has been a stalwart of AMA membership for more than 50 years. While the style and format of Marketing News has changed significantly over the years, the mission has remained the same: to keep our members informed and inspired.

Flipping through the past 50-plus years, we’ve tracked some incredible trends—namely, the digitization of the modern corporation. Following suit, Marketing News Quarterly will now be digital-only. We’re bringing you the information you crave in the place you already spend most of your time: online. We’re also releasing the fully digitized and searchable archive of Marketing News. Check out a preview of the full archive below—we’ve grabbed some of the most interesting issues, from the evolution of the personal computer to the skyrocketing value of Beanie Babies.
