We have many years of experience in running successful projects, both in the world of academia and in practice. Business partners can cooperate with us in various ways (joint research projects, consulting projects, bachelor and master theses, guest lectures), get in touch with high-potential students, and benefit from the specific marketing expertise of each of the Department’s institutes.

“We recently introduced new self-checkout systems in our markets and cooperated with the Department of Marketing and its students to learn more about how customers accept and use these systems. As a WU graduate, it was very important for me to be personally involved in this project and be directly in touch with the students. The project’s results provided vital insights and actionable implications for the optimization of our checkout points.”

“The volume and granularity of data that we receive from our business partners has rapidly increased over the past years. As a consequence, marketing analytics has become an indispensable part of our daily business. The challenge for us is to derive relevant insights from the data that help us to create added value for artists and music consumers. Through their expertise in state-of-the-art research methods, the team at WU’s Department of Marketing is helping us to leverage the opportunities that data-based decision support systems provide.”
