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.

Columbia Marketing Camp

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.

Brown Bag Seminar Series

During the summer months, the Columbia community is invited to the Brown Bag “get to know your faculty” Seminars where marketing faculty members share their research projects.
