The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) is an academic centre of research and higher education, focusing on institutional and managerial issues within complex organisations. There are seven disciplines within the NSM: Business Administration, Public Administration, Political Science, Economics and Business Economics, Social and Political Sciences of the Environment, Human Geography, and Spatial Planning.
The NSM strives for a multidisciplinary approach. The educational programme is characterised by small-scale teaching and provides a stimulating learning environment with an emphasis on the development of academic skills. The NSM employs 260 FTEs, 75% of whom are academics. Currently, the NSM has approximately 4,500 students. The NSM's research activities fall under the responsibility of the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research (IMR). Under the motto 'Creating Knowledge for Society', the IMR focuses on academic research into the development, design and effectiveness of the public and private structures that regulate, govern or manage human interactions. The debate on the fundamentals of academic research in the domains covered by the NSM is organised in the IMR Academy; the PhD programme is organised in the IMR Doctoral School. There are six multidisciplinary research groups at the IMR linked to strategic and scientifically and societally relevant issues (including one called Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Business Ecosystems). The IMR also hosts the Individual Decision Lab and the Group Decision Lab, which are particularly suited for studying collaboration in complex contexts and collective decision-making.
The Department of Business Administration is responsible for the BSc programmes in Business Administration (including a full track offered in English, and a track in International Business Administration) as well as eight specialisations within the MSc programme in Business Administration (all in English), including one in Marketing and one in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The department’s interdisciplinary research programme is called Responsible Organisation and addresses the multiple values underlying responsibility, the conditions required to realise those values and the interventions geared to the transition of organisations towards responsible organisations. The Department of Business Administration co-creates knowledge with multiple stakeholders in the wider community to ensure the impact of its academic work.
The two Assistant Professors of Marketing will be positioned within the Chair Group of Marketing, which is part of the Department of Business Administration. The group participates in various courses in the Department’s Bachelor's degree programme and is responsible for the Master's specialisation in Marketing. The Master's specialisation in Marketing focuses on the development and maintenance of relations with existing and new customers and is designed to help students develop the analytical skills needed to study complex management issues from a broad, interdisciplinary business perspective. In addition, the Chair Group of Marketing has a strong presence in the Master's specialisation in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The Master's specialisation in Innovation and Entrepreneurship teaches students how to deal with the challenges that entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and innovative firms face when identifying ideas for innovations, managing innovation projects, developing business plans, creating new markets for their innovations, and positioning themselves in a business ecosystem.
The research of the Chair Group of Marketing fits the Responsible Organisation research programme of the Department of Business Administration. More specifically, the research of the members of the chair group focuses on the responsible aspects of consumer behaviour and marketing management and innovation, including topics such as customer co-creation, environmentally friendly consumer behaviour, compulsive buying behaviour, healthy food consumption, adoption of innovations, stakeholder marketing, market creation for sustainable innovations, open innovation, and green product development. They have published in high-impact journals such as the Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, International Journal of Research in Marketing, Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, Journal of Service Research, and the Journal of Product Innovation Management.
