Teaching focuses on connecting scholarly research with practice and relevance for students at various levels, e.g. bachelor, master, PhD. We further aim to integrate both, marketing entrepreneurial aspects into the training of future managers and applied researchers.


We provide the following courses:

  • Digital Marketing (winter term, English): Digital Marketing is a lecture about phenomena in marketing practice and research related to the evolution of internet-driven technologies. The audience can gain knowledge about recent trends and developments. Link
  • Relationship Management (summer term, English): In modern management, customer relationship management is widely misunderstood as a software-driven approach to store information about customers and use that data for marketing purposes. However, this approach sharply neglects the fundamental principle of customer orientation in marketing. Hence, customer-driven approaches like relationship marketing or service dominant logic were proposed. This lecture introduces and deepens the understanding of customer-driven approaches as tools of relationship management within a digitalized and connected business context. Link

Students become familiar with the software SPSS and are able to apply important methods based on SPSS. This seminar is scheduled as a block event. Link
  • Method Lab (summer term, German): Method lab is a seminar for students with basic knowledge in market research and aims at conducting a self-prepared data collection.
