3 3 Marketing Education at the University of Oulu The University of Oulu is an international science university which creates innovation for the future, well being, and knowledge through multidisciplinary research and education. Founded in 1958, our research and education community is about students and 3000 employees strong, and one of the biggest and most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. The six faculties, the many departments and the specialized research units of the University of Oulu create the foundation for multi scientific research, innovation and training of experts for demanding professional tasks. The Department of Marketing trains marketing professionals for international and domestic businesses. The education is based on world class research especially in the areas of industrial business relationships, digital economy and logistics/supply chain management. The areas are studied from an international viewpoint, assuring academic rigor and managerial relevance while covering changes in With its 1400 students and 100 staff members, Oulu Business School (OBS) is solely responsible for the University level business education in Northern Finland. Six majors are offered at the Oulu Business School: Accounting, Economics, Finance, International Business, Management and Marketing. business environment such as globalization, digitalization, and co creation of value. A marketing graduate is qualified for managerial and expert positions, with typical duties including product management, customer relationship management and marketing communication. Since the first marketing students were admitted in 1991 the Department of Marketing has grown rapidly. We work in close cooperation with the business community, and combine theory and practice both in teaching and research with an innovative approach. The Department is active participant in the global academic network providing great opportunities for international exchange periods and even the double degree arrangement with the University of North Carolina. Erasmus scholarships allow students to visit European universities as exchange students. Also research projects with international colleagues offer opportunities for researchers and students in marketing to work in an inspiring and challenging international academic environment.

4 4 Year 2012 in a Nutshell The Year 2012 has been a very good year for Marketing. Marketing, to a large extent, is about exchanges between organizations and between people. What is exchanged can vary from products, services, money, knowledge, relationships, emotions, and experiences and so on. Various exchanges take place all around us in everyday life, whether we are working or spending free time. Exchanges are also at the core of doing cooperation. In the current networked world, cooperation can be seen as being the key activity for individuals and organizations to flourish and innovate. For scientific communities, previously heavily characterized by individualized expertise and hierarchies, the role of cooperative behavior has become the key issue as well. As researchers and teachers, we are more and more required to work together with each other and with other stakeholders in many ways. Therefore, if I need to pinpoint one major theme describing the year 2012 for the Department of Marketing, I will take the cooperation as the theme. Pauliina Ulkuniemi To fulfill our purpose as a part of the University, in research we need to cooperate internally, nationally and internationally with the researchers in our field. In teaching, we need to work together with the students and with firms to provide the students with relevant learning experiences. Also, to develop teaching, we need to work together with other teachers to build up strong programs for the future. To fulfill our duties in terms of having impact on the community, we need to build up cooperation with various different actors in our area. Department of Marketing has been working within all of these fields to fulfill its purpose during In 2012, we provided the surrounding community with marketing experts more than ever, as we reached our new record in graduates, altogether 59 new Masters specialized in marketing. When they leave the University, the graduates are equipped with multiple skills and knowledge of marketing. During their Master s thesis work, they have typically also solved managerial problems of their case firms. In addition to this, our work has also provided many other forms of impact to the surrounding businesses as well. During 2012, we have continued to integrate more and more real life examples into course assignments to increase the managerial relevance of our teaching. As an example, in one of our largest courses, Product and Market Strategies, about 190 students worked on an assignment to solve marketing challenges of Ski Resort Syöte. Assignment enabled the students to learn through a real life example and for a real purpose whereas the case firm gained numerous innovative ideas though the exercise. To continue, a course specifically designed to provide real examples and benefit for the participating firms, Firm Project in Marketing, was organized second time and through that several firms gained new perspectives to their marketing challenges. Overall, cooperation with the business life and impact on the surrounding community has continued to be on our agenda in teaching as well as in research.

5 5 In research, year 2013 continued to be successful for the Department of Marketing, with steady development in the number and quality of publications as well as amount of external research funding. To develop research at the Department, we have raised discussions over the focus areas of our research. Towards the end of 2012, the researchers throughout the university were required to carefully consider, in what kinds of research groups they plan operating in. The forthcoming Research Assessment Exercise (RAE2013) required the researchers to organize themselves in Research Communities and sign up for evaluation. Within Department of marketing, researchers take part in different inter disciplinary research communities, and largest part of researchers of the Department of marketing are associated with a community which brings together researchers from marketing, international business and management. So the year 2012 was a beginning of planning new programs, new research strategies, and so on. The actual work however, has only begun and it is critical that cooperative behavior among researchers, teachers and other stakeholders continues as we go ahead for the year 2013 and beyond. As I am ending my term as the head of the marketing department at the end of the year 2012, I want to thank our faculty, students, academic colleagues, project partners and other organizations and individuals who we have cooperated with during the year, for excellent work and atmosphere that have produced the magnificent results that we can happily share in this annual report. Pauliina Ulkuniemi

6 6 Review of the Year 2012 The following chapters present the main activities and events of 2012 in the areas of teaching, research and external activities of the Marketing Department. Teaching The aim of Department of Marketing is to ensure high quality teaching through continuous development and innovation. These innovations and developments have lived up to the expectations and investments haven t gone in vain as Marketing is the most sought out major in early admissions at Oulu Business School. In 2012, the number of applicants to Oulu Business School amounted to 1082, with 293 applicants who had chosen marketing as their first priority program (27% of all first priority program applications at the Oulu Business School). In 2012, a total of 200 new students started at the Oulu Business School, of which 50 were marketing program students. In addition, 10 new marketing students were selected in the separate M.Sc. program admission. Teaching development team - MOKTR It has been an inspiring year for the teaching development team (MOKTR) of the marketing department. There were several initiatives on the Business School level that will also influence our department. The School s application for international AACSB accreditation and its quick progress to the self evaluation stage was an important factor affecting all teaching activities also in our department. In the beginning of the year our team focused on

7 7 defining learning goals for the bachelor s, master s and doctoral programs in marketing. This discussion of competence requirements and learning goals at all levels of our education, including professional and academic perspectives, was very enriching considering the future vision and reform needs of our curriculum. Based on the requirements of the accreditation standards and also the feedback from the students during our collective teaching development afternoon ( Helmikahvit ) in April, we observed a need to develop evaluation criteria for our courses. The group therefore outlined common instructions for different forms of evaluation, together with evaluation criteria (rubrics) for course assignments and seminar papers. These are also useful in relation to AACBS and other development efforts in assurance of learning. Another important educational initiative was to start the planning of the new bachelor s program of the Oulu Business School. This new program will start in Autumn 2014 and will be common to all bachelor s level students at the Oulu Business School. The program will entail considerable reform needs also to the courses offered by the marketing department. Planning the new courses will be the most important task for the teaching development team in In this situation there is an excellent opportunity to align the course substance with pedagogical reforms related to professional relevance, student tutoring and international student exchange, for example. With the help of the active teaching development team, its dedicated student and faculty members and business representation, the department has a strong vantage point to develop its tuition at the forefront of marketing professionally and academically. Members of the teaching development team in 2012 were: Satu Nätti (chair) and other faculty members Saila Saraniemi, Ilkka Ojansivu, Kerttu Kettunen, Marika Tuomela Pyykkönen, Sakari Nikkilä and Jari Juga. Our student members are Hanne Kettunen, Vili Koistinen, Aino Meriläinen and Mika Tiainen. Our alumni representative is Tiina Koskela (Kaleva).

8 recognitions for students and teachers Oulun myyntimiehet ry, a regional association of the Union of Sales and Marketing Professionals (SMKJ), awarded our marketing student, Mari Nauha, for being actively involved in the marketing community and acting as a role model for students in marketing. The master s thesis of Aino Maija Toppi was ranked among the ten finalists in the national competition of Miltton Oy, a communications and public relations consultancy. The thesis was titled Corporate Brand Communication through Social Media in Industrial Setting and was supervised by Saila Saraniemi and Minna Mäläskä. Business cooperation Martti Ahtisaari Institute of Global Business and Economics, at the Oulu Business School, awarded Satu Nätti with the recognition as the educator of the year in its year s end celebration. Satu has a long experience as teacher in the area of B2B relationships and she also acts as a supervisor for thesis projects for emba students. The Department of Marketing has pursued and developed cooperation with the business community over the years, combining theory and practice in teaching and offering students with high quality knowledge with strong relevance to real business life issues. Most of the students in marketing write their bachelor s and master s thesis in close cooperation with companies or public sector organizations. In addition, students can work on business related problems in the special issues course that can be tailored to solve specific business problems or development issues. The course Firm Project in Marketing familiarizes students with project management and project communication through a three month project with real case companies. The project teams work closely with the collaborating companies and report regularly on the project. In 2012, the participating firms were Oulutours Oy, Aaria Oy, Oulu Port, Oulun Tuomiokirkkoseurakunta and Business Kitchen. The projects dealt with e.g. designing a new restaurant concept and developing the communication strategy for the Port of Oulu and the local parish. The course was organized by Assistant Professor Saila Saraniemi, Professor Jari Juga, Professor Veikko Seppänen and Lecturer Sakari Nikkilä.

10 10 In 2012, there were several externally funded research projects in progress at the Department: Barents Logistics 2 (Enpi Kolarctic CBC), Cleantech Solutions (Tekes), Emocha (Academy of Finland), Indico (Tekes), Moduserv (Tekes) and Puulog (Tekes). Externally funded projects create a solid economic foundation and offer business relevance for the research carried out at the Department. We are grateful to our business partners and domestic as well as international academic colleagues working with us in these projects for making it possible to accomplish all the research results in 2012 all your support has been invaluable for us. Services represent one of areas where our research is going from strength to strength. After years of dedicated research by the faculty and several externally funded projects (e.g. ModSeC, ModuServ, Proform, Cobra), service marketing and management has become one of the cornerstones of research at the Marketing Department. As one example of the ongoing activities, the Marketing Department and the ModuServ project organized a research seminar in Oulu on 23 April 2012 with prominent domestic and international researchers sharing their views on current topics in service research. The seminar offered an excellent opportunity for networking between researchers from various backgrounds and business representatives who share a common interest in service development. Research development team (MTETR) Overall there were 22 articles in international refereed academic journals, 24 conference papers and 11 articles in edited books or research publications that were published by the faculty of the Department. The Research Development Team of the Marketing Department (MTETR) set as its main goal to clarify the research focus for the department. This was also the topic for the Research Development Day in June 2012, where research focus was discussed in detail. The team also organized weekly research seminars, in which 16 research presentations were held in Faculty members at the department s research day, 11. June 2012
