Departmental Staff

About the Department

We are the longest established Marketing department in the UK - the first chair was instituted in Lancaster in 1964 and was partly funded by the Institute of Marketing. We have a proud history of delivering Marketing courses, which have included a strong project component based on "real-world" company problems.

Over the years, our expertise has grown into three key areas of research; consumer behaviour, business marketing and market studies. Our research makes important contributions to the business world and enhances our teaching.

Teaching & Research

Within this department we offer a range of study options at undergraduate, Masters and PhD level covering a wide range of subdisciplines within Marketing.
