The winner will receive a cash prize of €1,500 (or currency equivalent), a certificate and the prospect of publication in the European Journal of Marketing, as a full paper, or as an executive summary/research note, at the discretion of the Editor. In addition, a number of Highly Commended Awards may be bestowed.

Last year’s winner

“I am honored to thank Emerald, EFMD, and the European Journal of Marketing for picking my dissertation as the winner of the 2011 Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Award. Receiving this prize in a worldwide competition is a great personal and professional honor that I hardly dared to hope. I have to express my sincere thanks to Bernd Skiera for his guidance, the fun in research, and all the things I learned in the past years in an exciting field. A big hug also to my wife Lena and son Moritz for their great support.”
