Bridging Theory and Practice: a Symposium on Relevant Marketing Research
April 22, 2011
Columbia Business School
New York, NY

“Knowledge advances when striking real-world events and issues pose puzzles we have to try to understand and resolve. The most important decisions a scholar makes are what problems to work on.”
Professor James Tobin, Nobel Laureate in Lives of the Laureates, 1986

This one-day symposium brought together marketing scholars, journal editors, business school deans, and practitioners who feel that marketing discipline needs to re-examine itself and its relevance to practice.

The goal of the symposium was to synthesize a variety of perspectives and insights in order to identify concrete steps to achieve relevance. The format of the symposium consisted of an open discussion to identify key issues from the perspectives of all participants.
