A selection of renowned scholars from the field of advertising, marketing and branding will give interactive lectures and workshops on various topics, including ‘how to publish your work in academic top journals’, ‘how to manage your supervisors’ and ‘the dos and don’ts of peer reviewing.’

Active participation and some preparation are expected from the participants.
