3 2 Marketing education and research at the University of Oulu Business School Oulu Business School at the University of Oulu is an international research and educational institute for economic sciences. Oulu Business School is accredited by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), the premier accreditation body for business schools worldwide. Oulu Business School is one of the ten faculties within the University of Oulu, the second largest multidisciplinary university in Finland. With 1400 students and 100 staff members, Oulu Business School is solely responsible for the University level Business Education in the whole of Northern Finland. The Department of Marketing educates 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 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.
4 3 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 also a double degree arrangement with the University of North Carolina. Erasmus scholarships allow students to visit European universities as exchange students. The research is carried out in close cooperation with the business community and public organizations. Active collaboration with national and international academic partners is fostered in research projects, many of which get supported by external funding organizations such as the Academy of Finland and Tekes (the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation). The goal is to produce high-level academic research of international standards that is published in refereed international journals. Year 2014: some highlights The year 2014 brought a major educational reform at the Oulu Business School. The School s teaching programmes were completely renewed as the old 5-year discipline-based programmes were replaced with a general Bachelor s programme and five Master s programmes in the different disciplinary areas, including marketing. The first students in the new Bachelor s programme started in September The new Bachelor s programme includes courses from each of the five teaching disciplines of the Oulu Business School. The courses that are offered by the Marketing Department are: Principles of Marketing, Marketing Practices, Retail and Distribution Management and Strategic Marketing Management. In addition, the Department participates in joint courses such as the Firm Project and Bachelor s thesis supervision. The two-year Master s programme is now mainly focused on marketing studies and is taught in English. All marketing courses were updated in 2014 with a view of the AACSB accreditation standards. Much attention has been given to the learning goals and the ways how the achievement of these goals can be measured. Through these reforms and changes, we believe that we can offer the students more flexibility and high-quality business education of international standards. Strong research activity continued through 2014 and resulted in a number of refereed international journal and conference publications. The researchers have participated in
5 4 international conferences and have made visits to foreign universities. All this shows the high quality of our research and valuable connections with international academic partners. The business relevance of our research is shown by the projects that we conduct with our business partners. Universities have in recent years faced considerable economic pressures and project funding is one avenue to improve the situation. The researchers at the Marketing Department have again been very active in this area and several new externally funded projects were started in I thank the faculty for their commitment and dedicated work in I also thank our academic and business partners as well as project funding organizations for support and cooperation. I hope that this annual report gives a good overview of our key activities and results in Oulu, Jari Juga Professor, Head of the Marketing Department
6 5 Review of the year 2014 This chapter presents some of the main activities and results of 2014 in the areas of teaching, research and external activities of the Marketing Department. TEACHING In 2014, 46 students completed their Bachelor s degree and 50 students their Master s degree in Marketing at the Oulu Business School. A total of 43 Master s theses were accepted in Marketing in 2014 (see appendix for list of thesis topics). The Department aims to ensure high quality teaching through continuous development and innovation. One way to accomplish this is the Teaching Development Team (MOKTR) that has already a long history in the Marketing Department. A review of its activities in 2014 is given below by Ilkka Ojansivu. A student s perspective in marketing studies at the Oulu Business School is then given by Johanna Tolonen.
7 6 Teaching development team s review of the year 2014 It has been a year of inspiring ideas and new experiments for the teaching development team of the Marketing Department (MOKTR). MOKTR got together seven times in the year Two themes were of primary importance: redesigning and organizing the annual marketing student feedback event and initiating Oulu Business School level development towards uniform student evaluation criteria. The yearly marketing student feedback event is one of the pinnacles of MOKTR. This year the event was redesigned to attract shifting student needs and consider urban lifestyle. The venue was moved from the campus to café Tuba, which is located in the heart of the city and popular among students. The name of the event was changed to Marketing Mashup, which better conveyed the relaxed atmosphere of the event. The Learning Café method was used to collect feedback on four themes: Bachelor s programme development, Master s programme development, student motivation and future teaching methods. MOKTR then analysed the feedback and developed it into practical guidelines for lecturers and professors to follow in their teaching. Over the years the department of marketing has pioneered in the development and adoption of various learning and evaluation methods. In order to streamline the oftenscattered learning and evaluation methods MOKTR reviewed current spectrum of evaluation criteria and provided common guidelines for their use. This resulted in specific evaluating criteria for verbal presentations in marketing teaching, later also adopted at the faculty level in Master s thesis assessment. MOKTR then launched a faculty level initiative towards development of uniform student evaluation criteria for both written and verbal assignments. The initiative was accepted and the Oulu Business School is now moving on with this aspiring task. Members of the teaching development team in 2014 were: Ilkka Ojansivu (chair), faculty members: Jaana Tähtinen, Outi Nuojua and Timo Pohjosenperä. Our student members: Tiina Reponen, Mika Tiainen, Miia Paavola and Mikael Rahkamo. Our alumni representative: Mikko Ronkainen (Kaleva). Our guest members: Sinikka Moilanen, Satu Nätti and Pauliina Ulkuniemi. Ilkka Ojansivu
8 7 Student s slice of life in the Marketing Department I m a marketing student at the Oulu Business School and about to graduate in June Feels like it was only yesterday when I first time stepped my foot on the grounds of Oulu University. I have really enjoyed my time here at Oulu Business School: the inspiring course catalog, exciting international spirit and active student life has made these years unforgettable. Studying marketing as a major subject in Oulu Business School is demanding but rewarding. Extensive course selection makes sure that everyone gets to study their field of interests and get a glimpse into different areas of marketing. Fascinating case exercises offer a great chance at learning by doing and applying theory into practice. Writing the bachelor s and master s theses in department of marketing has been not a walk in a park but still rewarding and relatively smooth processes. Thanks for that belong to the great guiding system and caring supervisors. In a month I m going to hand in my master s thesis and then my studies are complete. I m grateful for the Oulu Business School for the path I have been allowed to take here, and most of all to the marketing department which made it possible for me to gain important and valuable working experience as a university trainee during my last semester. I know I will always carry a warm memory of Oulu Business School in my heart. Johanna Tolonen RESEARCH Research in marketing at the Oulu Business School has three focal areas. The first area is industrial marketing, especially business-to-business relationships and value-creating networks. The second area is digital business, with digital marketing, social media and mobile commerce as central research themes. The third area is logistics and supply chain management with logistics services and outsourcing as specific areas of interest. Services and service business management is a cross-cutting theme that is explored in a multidisciplinary group, SHARP (Sensing and Shaping Service Business Relationships), selected as one of the Martti Ahtisaari Institute s Research Groups for the period The research is carried out in close cooperation with the business community and public organizations. Active collaboration with national and international academic partners is fostered in research projects, many of which get supported by external funding

15 14 BRIIF Public Procurement Bridging International Forerunners The main objective of BRIIF is to generate knowledge on value co-creation in a triad of public procurers, suppliers and end-customers. The triad is examined from strategic management, marketing and business network viewpoints paying particular attention to the legal and technological considerations. Utilizing the partner cities as research laboratories the aim is to support the development of practices that facilitate pioneering in public procurement. The research work and the collaboration between the partners were already established when the BRIIF research project started on During the fall 2014 extensive material collection was started in three procurer organizations. Data were collected by interviewing participants of selected procurement projects and by observing on-going projects in different stages of the decisionmaking process in the target organization. BRIIF is funded by TEKES and the work is implemented in cooperation between University of Oulu Business School (departments of marketing and MIB), Center for Internet Excellence, University of Lapland, City of Oulu, City of Hämeenlinna and Municipality of Tyrnävä. More information: Professor Tuija Mainela (tuija.mainela (at) oulu.fi) and project manager Saara Pekkarinen (saara.pekkarinen (at) oulu.fi) DHR Digital Health Revolution The DHR Project started in August, 2014 and is funded by TEKES - the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation. The DHR project aims at changing how people think, act and access health related services in their lives. Main drivers for new health care system approaches are global megatrends, e.g. prevention (or staying healthy), need to cut health care costs, personalization of medicine and convergence of healthcare and wellbeing businesses. DHR project focuses on developing future MyData based health services. MyData is a subset of personal data of which an individual can access and control. The goal is to identify future business opportunities and potential value propositions, business contexts and alternative business models related to future connected health MyData services. The project is conducted by multidisciplinary research and expert consortium including University of Oulu, coordinator CHT, University of Helsinki and Lapland, Aalto University, Tampere University of Technology, Technical Research Center of Finland and National Consumer Research Center.

16 15 Efficient logistics support services in health care Tekes-funded project Tehokkaat ja käyttäjäkeskeiset tukipalvelumallit pitkien etäisyyksien terveyspalvelujärjestelmissä (Efficient logistics support services in health care) focuses on health care systems in sparsely populated areas. Long distances cause challenges on logistical support operations such as material supply, pharmacy, laboratory, instruments and equipment, food supply, laundry, etc. In this project we concentrate on value creation of support operations and scalable services across organizational boundaries in areas characterized by long distances. During the first year researchers from different disciplines have focused on e.g. value creation of logistics support services in healthcare, cost accounting of care chain, geographical locations of service centers and work division between care personnel and support service personnel. The project is conducted in collaboration between Department of Geography (University of Oulu), Industrial Engineering and Management (University of Oulu) Itella-Posti Oyj, University Hospital Districts of Northern Ostrobothnia (PPSHP) and Lapland (LSHP), City of Oulu and Oulu Business School. More information: project manager Timo Pohjosenperä (timo.pohjosenpera (at) oulu.fi) and professor Jari Juga. Emotions in Challenging Business Relationships, EmoCha The purpose of EmoCha is to uncover the state of buyer-seller relationship ending research and expand its interdisciplinary opportunities by applying Critical Realism. The project is funded by the Academy of Finland and is conducted in collaboration between The University of Oulu Business School, University of Uppsala, Sweden, IESEG School of Management, France, and Lancaster University, UK. During 2014 EmoCha focused on relationship ending and recovery, as well as rational and emotional understanding of them. Two journal articles were accepted in 2014, and the results were presented at an international conference (Academy of Marketing Science) and workshop (Nordic Workshop on Relationship Dynamics, NoRD2014) as well as national seminars. During November- December, Dr. Annmarie Ryan from Limerick visited the Oulu Business School More information: Professor Jaana Tähtinen (jaana.tahtinen (at) oulu.fi)
17 16 Value Co-creation in Modular Service Network, ModuServ The ModuServ Project, financed by TEKES, was successfully completed in January The overall purpose of this research project was to describe, analyze and evaluate how value is co created in business services through modularity and collaborative business networks. The project aimed to challenge the traditional research conventions by combining three theoretical backgrounds on value cocreation, collaborative networks, and service modularity. By doing this, new perspectives on business service innovations could be found and explored. The project was conducted by the Marketing Department at the University of Oulu Business School and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland in close collaboration with three companies: Kiinteistöhuolto Jurvelin, PCS Engineering and Pöyry Finland. For more information: Project director Saara Pekkarinen, saara.pekkarinen (at) oulu.fi. Value Co-creation in Technological B2B Services Value co-creation in Technological B2B Services is a postdoctoral research project financed by the Academy of Finland. The overall purpose of this project is to explore value creation in the context of emerging technological business services by focusing on three main themes: value co-creation, technological business services and business models. During 2014 Hanna Komulainen was on a maternity leave for ten months and worked in the project for two months.
