Much has happened in our department over the past academic year and there is much to share with you through this newsletter. Here is a brief selection of some of the highlights:


Our team

Bigger and better than ever: we had wonderful people joining our department. They are:


  • Dr. Tao Huang from the University of Kent
  • Dr. Robert Kreuzbauer from Nanyang Technological University
  • Dr. Stephan Ludwig from Westminster University
  • Dr. Farhana Sajjad from Brunel University


 A warm welcome to all of them. They complement our team of great people with passion for researching and teaching marketing and retailing.


Our communication platforms

New alongside traditional: We recently launched our new website and Facebook page, which provide us with an effective platform to engage with our stakeholder groups − in particular prospective, current and past students, businesses, media and academic peers.


Our physical space within the Surrey Business Marketing and Retail Management Welcome by Head of Department School (west wing of the top level in the Rik Medlik Building) has also received a significant makeover and now provides an engaging area that showcases our achievements and activities.


New seating outside our department is provided in the landing area that invites visitors to linger and relax. Visit us and find out more!


Our BSc and MSc programmes

More digital, entrepreneurial and international: Our programme directors have further developed our programmes to ensure they reflect and engage with leading edge developments across marketing and retailing.


Our continued high admission numbers underlines the huge interest in both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that engage with both academic and richly practical aspects of marketing and retailing from international perspectives.


Our students

Celebrating achievements: Undoubtedly the proudest moment of the year is when our students graduate. In April we saw our three MSc cohorts being awarded their degrees.
The weather was kind to us as our students returned to campus to collect their degrees and celebrate with Faculty within the department.


Three of our MSc students:


  • Ms. Laura Seifert (MSc International Retail Marketing)
  • Ms. Tina Wildi (MSc International Marketing Management)
  • Mr. Christos Michael (MSc Marketing Management)

were given best students awards (“The Department of Marketing and Retail Management Best Student Award”) for their outstanding achievements during their time at Surrey.


Congratulations to all of our students, well done!


More details about our wide range of activities and achievements are detailed in the following pages of this magazine. Enjoy reading!
