Cfr research school in retailing
At a glance:
• Purpose: to strengthen retail research both nationally and internationally. The aim is to build a foundation for both academically and practically relevant retail research.
• Four PhD courses covering a broad range of retail topics, delivered by international top-level researchers. All courses are intertwined with a number of industry collaborations (Business Collaboration Events). This provides the research school with a focus on not only theoretically relevant research, but also on practically relevant research that can strengthen retailing in society.
• The research school lays a foundation for a network of researchers, including PhD candidates, alumni, faculty and practitioners. This will have both direct impact in terms of new and exciting research constellations, and indirect benefits such as providing a formalized way of encouraging practically relevant retailing research that is also implemented by practitioners.
• Program director: Prof. Sara Rosengren, Center for Retailing, SSE.
