- Our program at the Northwestern University offers two different tracks in training Marketing scholars: a consumer behavior (sometimes called “CB”) track, and a quantitative marketing (sometimes called “Quant”) track. Both tracks focus on understanding the impact of marketing activity on consumers and firms. However, they differ in terms of the theories and methods used to analyze data. Consumer behavior researchers tend to focus on psychological aspects of a consumer’s decision-making process and analyze data collected through laboratory studies and field experiments.
- Quantitative marketing researchers often draw on theories of behavior from related social sciences (e.g., economics, psychology, sociology), use data from observational and archival sources and field experiments, and analyze the data using advanced statistical and econometric techniques.
Active Research Areas:
- brand management; competitive advantage; data analytics and analysis; pricing and promotion; channel management; statistical learning; digital marketing; uncertainty, motivation, and consumer identity characteristics; judgment and decision making; trust and deception in market exchanges; neuro-marketing.
