Dr Hanne Kroger-Knight
Lecturer in Marketing
Plymouth Graduate School of Management & Plymouth Business School (Faculty of Business)
Currenty, I am lecturing a number of undergraduate and postgraduate marketing related subjects inlcuding 'International Marketing', 'Digital Marketing' and 'Innovation and New Product Development'. Addtionally, I am supervising students at under- and postgraduate level as well as guiding our students through their placement year.
I highly enjoy teaching a variety of marketing related topics. Digital marketing is one of my core areas of teaching. In addtion, I tremendously enjoy teaching international marketing with a focus on county-of-origin effect and place branding. Sustainability and innovation are two areas that I like to add to my teaching whenever I can.
I thoroughly enjoy research around sustainability in the marketing environment. In particular how places are branded as sustainable and in how far the sustainability angle influences performance. Also, brand identification is an area that I am very passionate about.
