The theory sections are written by leading academics from top universities and colleges, and cover leadership and management, the application of marketing theory, brand identity, ethical approaches to management and more. The practical cases are principally based on real businesses within the broader veterinary sector both nationally and internationally.

The cases are supported by web-based overviews, student assessments and interactive questions. The book will be an important business and enterprise learning resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate level students of veterinary medicine. It will also be an invaluable supporting resource for business and enterprise educators and those responsible for curriculum design in veterinary schools internationally.
