The Department of Marketing and International Management researches topics with high social relevance (e.g. Health Marketing, Corporate Social Responsibility, New Media). Research about the state of the art comprises not only the creation of a logically stringent theoretical foundation, but also the examination of scientific hypotheses on an empirical basis. Methodological expertise is of critical importance.
Research in the Department of Marketing and International Management contributes to the further development of the marketing discipline at the international level. The department has various cooperation projects with international researchers and institutions and continuously strives to develop further cooperation projects.
The main research areas of the Department of Marketing and International Management are:
Advertising, corporate communications and media
Business ethics and corporate social responsibility
Customer and patient satisfaction
A complete list of all research projects in the Department of Marketing and International Management can be found in the Research Documentation (FoDok).
European Advertising Academy (EAA)
The European Advertising Academy (EAA) is an international scientific community with researchers from the fields of advertising and communication. The aim of the EAA is to support scientific research about the topic advertising and communication and to promote scientific dialogue. Another aspiration of the EAA is to form a European counterpart to the American Academy of Advertising (AAA), with which it has close ties. Prof. Terlutter is a founding member and former president of the EAA. The formation of the EAA came about as a result of the development of an international scientific community of researchers from all over the world.
Each year, the EAA organises an international conference, the ICORIA (International Conference on Research in Advertising). Further information can be found here: www.icoria.org
