Research in the Department of Marketing

The marketing faculty's dedication to research has propelled the department into both national and global prominence. According to the American Marketing Association's  Marketing Doctoral Student Special Interest Group, The University of Mississippi was among the top 65 schools worldwide in terms of research publications with 20 publications appearing in the top six marketing journals between 2000 and 2007. This is especially impressive as there are several departments nationwide that are much larger than the department at Ole Miss. Our department ranked fifth globally for the number of articles published in the Journal of Retailing, ranking above such business schools as Harvard, and was ranked 14th for articles appearing in the Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science. Data since the study was completed will show that the Ole Miss marketing faculty has several additional publications in these journals. This research productivity benefits our students as they are being taught by a faculty that is looking the major changes in the business/marketing environment that will shape the next 10 to 20 years.
