Marketing can be defined as an activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large.

Our research undertaken in marketing emphasises all these elements of marketing, with a focus on branding, consumption, retail, multi-and omnichannel, inter-organisational collaborations, and internationalisation.

The strength of the research conducted by the marketing group lies in our ability to approach these areas from a variety of perspectives. We work from cultural as well as managerial viewpoints, examine consumer markets as well as business markets, and investigate using qualitative as well as quantitative methods. We are strong both in terms of academic and practical relevance. In all areas of investigation, we prioritise research into sustainability and digitalisation.

In brief, our research covers areas such as:

  • Brand studies
  • Consumer studies
  • Retail and channel studies
  • Internationalisation
  • Digitalisation
  • Sustainability.

Several formal research centres and research groups have strong links with the marketing department:
