A centre focusing on real-world problems of consumption, which are of global significance for marketing practice and public policy.
Led by Professor Maria Piacentini, this Centre (CCI) builds on the research excellence and the international, interdisciplinary networks of colleagues in the Department of Marketing. We have expertise in all aspects of consumption, from a focus on consumer culture theory and the sociology of consumption and markets, through to experimental work in the domain of consumer psychology.
Our work thus far has had an emphasis on consumption-related issues linked to health and consumer well being, including: alcohol consumption; excessive food consumption; parenting practices and consumption; health and well being; sustainable consumption; religious consumption; online consumption; youth and consumption; and health communications.
We aim to generate and disseminate cutting-edge knowledge and insights about Consumption and Consumer Behavior reflecting corporate and policy concerns. We work with policy and corporate partners to identify pressing problems and hot topics that can form the basis of research applications to develop actionable insights to address these areas.
We're home to a vibrant doctoral community where our PhD students are encourage to take advantage of the School's research strengths to develop core skills. We welcome PhD applicants with an appropriate Masters degree or those who have a specialised Marketing undergraduate degree.
