Marketing faculty and PhD students are part of the Department of Analytics, Marketing and Operations. The department welcomes doctoral applicants from a wide variety of academic disciplines who are united by a desire to conduct innovative research. PhD students have the opportunity to work with renowned faculty whose projects engage a range of different industries as well as qualitative and quantitative researchers from across Imperial. With its small intake, the programme provides a high faculty-student ratio in a supportive environment, preparing students for academic careers in top Business Schools worldwide.
Marketing projects examine a number of key challenges, from the differing notion of brand attachment to managing employee and customer behaviour, from aggregating and understanding diverse information sources in decision-making to the nature of purchase decisions, strategic marketing problems such as long-term effectiveness of digital and non-digital marketing efforts, statistical modelling and testing, modelling cross-market (spatial) dependencies for both Internet and non-Internet data. Our research offers important insights and solutions for firms and organisations in a range of industries.
