Service Marketing and TourismRSS

Welcome to the Institute for Service Marketing and Tourism web site!

Our research and teaching activities focus on marketing management in a dynamic service landscape. Many service industries are being radically transformed by advances in information technology and interactive online media. This offers tremendous opportunities and makes service marketing an extremely exciting and challenging field of study.

Our research is interdisciplinary with links to statistics, economics, psychology, and information systems. We use modern statistical and marketing science methods to develop and to apply marketing models for managerial decision support. To serve the needs of our industry partners and policy makers, we balance basic and applied research.

Our students are seeking research-driven course content and wish to acquire skills in marketing research, business analytics, and decision making. We offer practice-oriented and experiential teaching formats to entable students to translate their skills into the design of effective marketing programs.
