Department Marketing

Industry Partnership Department of Marketing

The Marketing Department has worked on several projects with companies in the past. We see the collaboration between business and research as an outstanding opportunity to create value for companies, students, and society. The challenges and opportunities in today’s rapidly changing marketing environment make these collaborations even more essential.

Industry partnerships fall into three categories:

  1. Research partnerships: solving marketing problems for businesses in joint research projects
  2. Executive education: training in the form of workshops and custom executive education.
  3. Bachelors and Masters education: incorporating industry experience in and outside the classroom (see submenu Connection to Practice)
