Doctoral Education Network in Marketing (DENIM)

The Doctoral Education Network in Marketing (DENIM) is a cooperation network among marketing faculty in KATAJA member universities. The education programme is open to all doctoral students in marketing who are enrolled at one of the Finnish universities that offer a doctoral degree in business administration.

The objectives of DENIM are (i) to enhance the academic study of marketing and closely related research domains and (ii) to support doctoral studies within these fields.

To support the doctoral studies DENIM offers (i) core and specialized marketing courses with highly qualified international and national faculty, and (ii) participation in bi-annual national tutorials that gather Ph.D. students and faculty from all KATAJA member universities.
