as we are well aware that some of you are concerned about the form of the exam for various reasons (e.g. because you are currently not present), we would like to give you a short update on this matter today: Due to the current situation, the marketing exam will be held in a digital format via e-learning and NOT as a face-to-face or oral exam.
The most important thing first: You don't have to worry about anything. You will have sufficient time to complete the exam questions online. The exam will consist of various open tasks and multiple choice questions.
As soon as we have all organizational information from the faculty, we will be able to provide you with more detailed information.
All the best and stay healthy,
Your chair team

We are happy to announce the publication of Mandy Pick's first paper ‘Psychological Ownership in Social Media Influencer Marketing‘.
In an online study she examines: first, the impact of consumers’ perceived influencer credibility (IC), using the source credibility model in respect of purchase intention, attitude towards advertising and product; second, the impact of the organizational behavior concept psychological ownership (PO) on consumer behavior by showing that the concept has significant positive effects on attitude towards the product and purchase intention like in prior research; third, the perceived connection and relationship between the influencer and consumer to understand the relations. Her results show that perceived IC serves as a significant criterion, determining purchase intention, attitude towards advertising and product, while contributing an instrument for transferring convincing messages, which increase the perceived connection to the influencer and the PO feeling for a product and, thus, influence consumer behavior positively. Theories on source credibility and a connection to the PO concept allowed to develop a framework to assess the importance of IC and its influence on consumers’ perception of the products that influencers advertise to better understand the interactions in the influencer marketing context.

We are happy to announce the first paper of Frauke Kühn together with her co-authors Marcel Lichters and Nina Krey ‘The touchy issue of produce: Need for touch in online grocery retailing‘. In two studies, consumers rate their perception of produce offered in an online shop. Results demonstrate that high-NFT consumers express higher quality concerns and lower affective response to online offered produce. This negative influence of NFT is stronger if consumers use indirect compared to direct touch interfaces. Further, NFT influences WTP difference between offline and online offered produce. A third study proposes a solution through online videos as visual design features. Displaying haptic evaluations of high-touch diagnostic produce by other consumers successfully negates NFT’s adverse influences.

We are happy to announce the publication of our newest article titled “Prediction: Coveted, Yet Forsaken? Introducing a Cross‐Validated Predictive Ability Test in Partial Least Squares Path Modeling” in Decision Sciences. Authored by Benjamin Liengaard (Aarhus University), Pratyush N. Sharma (University of Alabama), G. Tomas M. Hult (Michigan State University), Morten B. Jensen (Aarhus University), Marko Sarstedt (OVGU), Joseph F. Hair (University of South Alabama), and Christian M. Ringle (Hamburg University of Technology), the paper introduces the cross‐validated predictive ability test (CVPAT) to conduct a pairwise comparison of predictive power of competing models in partial least squares structural equation modeling. Monte Carlo simulation studies substantiate its performance and an example using the well‐known American Customer Satisfaction Index model substantiates CVPAT’s practical utility.
