Four-School Marketing Seminar
In April we join our faculty colleagues at New York University, Wharton and Yale for the annual Four-School Marketing Seminar, which is hosted on a rotating basis. One speaker from each school presents at the full-day event, which concludes with a cocktail reception. This year's event is hosted by Yale University.
Every year the division hosts a “marketing camp” for faculty members, PhD students and visiting scholars. Four guest speakers are invited to present their research followed by evening activities and dinner. This year’s guest speakers: Simona Botti, London Business School; Gunter Hitsch, University of Chicago Booth School of Business; Stijn Van Osselaer, Rotterdam School of Management; and Jiwoong Shin, Yale School of Management.
