For decades, the Marketing Department has been the recognized leader in the discipline.

Faculty research and expertise includes a broad range of topics, such as marketing analytics, consumer behavior and cultural marketing, advertising effectiveness, and the development of marketing principles and new products.

Our faculty apply an innovative, multi-disciplinary, research-based approach to developing and testing new theories and educating the next generation of leaders.

Our marketing department has produced dominant textbooks in three key areas of marketing: marketing management, channels of distribution, and sales promotions. The marketing faculty serve as editors at leading academic journals, including Journal of Consumer Research and Management Science. The Kellogg faculty also includes three former presidents of the Association of Consumer Research, the leading academic organization for behavioral research. Three members of the faculty have won the prestigious Marketing Educator of the Year award from the American Marketing Association.

Graduate students of the department are emerging leaders in the field; marketing doctoral students have won more American Marketing Association awards for first place and honorable mentions in its dissertation competition than any other school.
