International Strategy & Marketing

As part of the University of Amsterdam Business School the International Strategy & Marketing section is a leader in providing internationally recognised research and actionable insights. Examining the role business and organisations have in society, the section specifically fosters a steady exchange between theory and practice to better equip executives with the information they need to explore the effect their organisations have on internal and external stakeholders alike.

The ISM section is home to more than 40 distinguished faculty members and international business experts, who oversee and direct a variety of undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and post-doctoral programmes. Although the ISM section has grown substantially over the recent years, further growth is expected.

Strategy & International Management

At our Strategy and Management group, managers in organisations are considered the central actors. Business in society is one of the main areas of focus, examining the role of business and organisations in regards to corporate governance, social responsibility and sustainability. Another increasingly important focus for both research and education is digital transformation and innovation strategy. Issues such as digital transformation and the consequences for organisational capabilities, learning and strategy are playing a major role in business innovation, network strategies and business analytics.

Members of the Strategy & Management group regularly publish in a variety of leading international journals:

  • Academy of Management Review
  • Strategic Management Journal
  • Organization Science
  • Journal of Management Studies
  • Journal of International Business Studies
  • Corporate Governance: An International Review

The focus of the Marketing faculty lies on Marketing Analytics, Modeling, Consumer Behavior and general Business Psychology, including Business Negotiations. Our group cooperates with a variety of companies, ranging from multi-national organisations to local start-ups and public services. As a result, our research and educational programmes highly benefit from these collaborations, fostering a steady exchange between theory and practice.

The Marketing group is also equipped with a Behavioral Laboratory. It offers state-of-the-art equipment and technologies, providing researchers crucial insights to further develop and test theoretical models, which in turn provide the foundation for internationally recognised research. 

Members of the Marketing group regularly publish in a variety of leading international journals:

  • Journal of Marketing
  • Journal of Marketing Research
  • Journal of Consumer Psychology
  • Journal of Applied Psychology
