The Marketing group consists of scholars in marketing strategy (Jaideep Prabhu, Eden Yin, Ahmed Khwaja), modelling (Dominique Lauga, Ahmed Khwaja, Shasha Lu) and consumer behaviour (Dominique Lauga, Eric Levy, Vincent Mak). Group members work in areas as diverse as:
- Marketing and innovation in emerging markets
- Experimental economics
- Game theory and industrial organisation
- Unstructured and big data
- Social identity and consumption behaviour
- Behavioural decision-making
The group is international, with members from China, France, Hong Kong, India and the US. Members have extensive research networks with academics from other leading institutions throughout North America and the rest of the world. The School enjoys frequent visits from world-class scholars and has the resources to invite leading scholars to spend between one and three months working with faculty on research projects. Previous visiting professors who have spent a month or more at the School include Hans Baumgartner (Pennsylvania State University), John Deighton (Harvard), Jan Heide (Wisconsin Madison), Wayne Hoyer (Texas Austin), Ganesh Iyer (Berkeley), Shailendra Jain (Washington), Christine Moorman (Duke), Jinhong Xie (University of Florida), Elie Ofek (Harvard), Bernd Skiera (Goethe University Frankfurt), Gerard Tellis (USC), and Kathleen Vohs (Minnesota).
The group has also been organising an annual marketing research camp every June since 2013. The research camp has become a high profile research event which attracts top scholars in the field from all over the world. Past speakers have included leading academics from Fudan, Harvard, Hong Kong (HKUST), Imperial College, INSEAD, LBS, Michigan, MIT, NYU, Oxford, Penn State, UBC, UNC, USC, Wharton, Wisconsin and Yale. This event has also been well attended by academics from major universities in the UK such as LBS, Oxford, Durham, Imperial, Warwick, Leeds, Bath, Cardiff and Cass Business School.
The research agenda of the group is stimulated by regular contact with senior personnel of regional, national and international organisations such as BP, Barclays Bank, BRAC, BT, Cambridge Enterprise, Infosys, NESTA, PepsiCo, Pearson, Huawei, and various parts of the UK and Indian governments, among others.
