"Marketing is not the art of finding clever ways to dispose of what you make. It is
the art of creating genuine customer value." — Philip Kotler
When the topic of discussion is marketing, there is only one name that
springs immediately to mind i.e., Philip Kotler. Kotler has, over the past four
decades, established a reputation for himself as the "Father of Marketing".
As the first person to define marketing as a field, he has achieved iconic
status in countries all over the world including Indonesia, where his invaluable
contributions have led to a postage stamp being brought out in his honor. His
book Marketing Management: Application, Planning, Implementation and Control
(1967), now in its thirteenth edition, is widely considered to be the `bible' of
marketing. As his colleague at Kellogg, I have had the privilege of working with
this "living legend" of marketing.
Philip Kotler is the S.C. Johnson & Son Distinguished Professor of International
Marketing at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
Kellogg was voted the “Best Business School” for six years in Business Week’s
survey of U.S. business schools. It is also rated as the “Best Business School for the
Teaching of Marketing”. Professor Kotler has significantly contributed to Kellogg’s
success through his many years of research and teaching there.
He received his master's degree at the University of Chicago and his PhD at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, both in economics. He did postdoctoral
work in mathematics at Harvard University and in behavioral science at the
University of Chicago.
He has received honorary doctoral degrees from the Stockholm University,
University of Zurich, Athens University of Economics and Business, DePaul
University, the Cracow School of Business and Economics, Group H.E.C. in Paris,
the University of Economics and Business Administration in Vienna, Budapest
University of Economic Science and Public Administration, and the Catholic
University of Santo Domingo.
“Marketing is becoming a battle based more on information than on sales
power” – Philip Kotler.
Professor Kotler has consulted for such companies as IBM, General Electric, AT&T,
Honeywell, Bank of America, Merck and others in the areas of marketing strategy
and planning, marketing organization and international marketing.
