PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE


The marketing field is changing rapidly nowadays. Important new themes, such as getting connected to customers, co-creation, and brand cultivation, are getting attention. In this course the aim is to discuss the latest theoretical developments within the scientific marketing (management) literature.

The course is divided into five general themes: (1) Marketing Strategy, (2) Customer Management and Models, and (3) Innovation, (4) Networks, and (5) Competition.. In the first theme Prof. Verhoef will discuss topics such as market orientation and marketing’s influence within the firm. In the second theme Prof. Verhoef, will discuss marketing’s role within the firm and several topics within customer management, such as customer metrics, customer lifetime value, modeling customer behavior, and multi-channel customer management. Dr. Wuyts will discuss the extant literature on innovation in a marketing context and the role of interrelationships with firms and customers. In the fourth theme, he will discuss the role of networks and the analysis of these networks. Finally Prof. Leeflang will discuss scientific research on marketing strategy and competition.

The course will consist of both lectures and discussions of scientific assigned articles from leading marketing journals. During the lectures, there will be a variety of assignments and workgroup breaks. You are asked to read the articles up-front in order to get more vivid class discussions.

Research Presentations
At the end of each day, we will have a discussion of research of the PhD.-students. Based on their research interests, we have assigned students to the specific days/ professors. Students who will be presenting are asked the following:
- Provide a presentation of no more than 7-8 minutes.
- Use a maximum of 4 slides, where you lay-out your main research problem, your assumed contribution to the literature, the (conceptual) model, and the research methodology/design.
