Research Initiatives

The Marketing Department applies a Triple Helix framework for the strategic development of its Research Initiatives Programme. The three point strategy of innovative research lies in our aim to link Academia, Industry and Society in our projects. Faculty research and student projects are embedded in the industry's requirements for field work spanning a wide range of data collection methodologies. Social research is conducted in the field of sustainability, social responsibility and social awareness. Current research papers of the Marketing Department faculty are listed within each faculty member's individual web profile.

Academic Research Seminars

Each semester the Marketing Department showcases cutting edge research projects and dissertation research conducted by faculty and students. The Research Seminars are regular events consisting of presentations to an audience of students, researchers and research supervisors. The objective of the seminars is to highlight the breadth and depth of research conducted at the Marketing Department and to generate insightful discussions within our growing research community.
