Professor Liz Parsons PhD

Professor of Marketing Marketing (ULMS)


    I have taught across a range of marketing and consumer research modules over the past 16 years. Shying away from conventional textbooks I aim to ground marketing theories in everyday practice and experience using academic papers alongside case studies and real life examples. To this end I have recently designed a new module Advanced Marketing Theory I have also taught Marketing and Society, Marketing and Globalization, Contemporary Issues in Marketing and Consumer Behaviour using this approach. A second edition of my co-authored teaching text Contemporary Issues in Marketing and Consumer Behaviour is due out next year.

    I am Academic Lead for PRME (an organisation which promotes Principles for Responsible Management Education) - the role involves promoting and maintaining awareness of ethical principles across the school in both teaching and research.
