ANZMAC conference
Marketing in a Post-Disciplinary Era

December 2016, University of Canterbury, Christchurch


Marketing exists in an environment that is constantly evolving. It interfaces with psychology, tourism, management, entrepreneurship, law, economics and other social sciences. Other disciplines like engineering and natural sciences now recognise that business knowledge significantly contributes to the success of new discoveries and innovation. Increasingly, governments and research bodies encourage cross-collaborations between and among scholars in advancing new knowledge to benefit society.

ANZMAC 2016 brought together current research based on cross disciplinary approaches and provided a forum where scholars engaged in a robust conversation on the cross disciplinary impact of marketing and how marketing should look in this environment.
