Upcoming courses


Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden in collaboration with Hanken School of Economics, Finland – spring 2022

Application deadline: December 5th 2021

Systems thinking has a long history within the marketing discipline, although it represents a “road less traveled” compared to the mainstream marketing management school of thought.
In recent years, an increased emphasis on the dynamic nature of the context within which firms and marketers work has generated a renewed interest in and perceived relevance of a systemic understanding of core marketing phenomena such as value co-creation, brands, markets. Systems thinking, arguably, also plays a key role in equipping marketing with the conceptual tools needed in the effort of tackling the wicked problems which societies across the globe are currently facing. This course offers an overview of how ideas from general systems theory as well as more specific streams of systems literature have been used to reframe and enrich the understanding of marketing and its phenomena.
