Research Projects

Some of your business and marketing questions may be addressed by research. The Center for Branding welcomes opportunities to collaborate with you on research projects, especially ones involving large data sets. The opportunity to pursue a research project is a win-win. You receive business insights that can add value to your organization, and we're able to create new knowledge to help others. We are able to complete work confidentially through non-disclosure agreements if preferred.
