The Marketing PhD program prepares students to advance knowledge on the complex interactions between consumers and markets. Students work collaboratively with faculty and gain the experimental, quantitative and analytical skills necessary to conduct research on the drivers of consumer behavior, the mechanisms of consumer decision-making and the indicators of firms’ strategic success.

Research interests of marketing faculty and doctoral students include consumer financial decision-making, marketing communication and persuasion, innovation, pricing, corporate social responsibility, social network effects, and social listening.
