Our world-renowned Professor of Marketing, Simona Botti, gave a taste of what you can look forward to during lectures on the MBA. The session was interactive with a lively debate, combined with theory and practical application.
Professor Botti joined London Business School in 2007 after two years as Assistant Professor of Marketing at the S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management, Cornell University. She received an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Bocconi University in Milan, Italy, and a MBA and PhD in Marketing from the University of Chicago.
Professor Botti teaches the Brand Management elective and co-directs (with David Faro) the open enrolment Executive Education course Strategic Branding: From Behavioural Insight to Business Growth. In 2017, she received the MBA Best Teacher Award and the London Business School Excellence in Teaching Award. Professor Botti’s research focuses on consumer behaviour and decision making, with particular emphasis on the psychological processes underlying perceived personal control and how exercising control (freedom of choice, power, information) influence consumers’ satisfaction and well-being.
