Research labs

Marketing Research Lab

Opened in January 2008, this innovative lab is fitted with 15 customized computer workstations to conduct computerized marketing simulations and electronic data capture directly from research participants, as well as non-computer-mediated activities. The room can be modified for other research-based activities, such as conducting in-depth interviews, focus group sessions and screening of advertisements.

Behavioural Research Lab

In 2022, the Asper School of Business will open the The David Dreman Behavioral Management Research Lab. The lab will assist faculty with carrying out research, developing additional research capacity based on cutting edge trends and multidisciplinary collaboration. We will introduce new workshops to further enhance the research potential of our graduate students and stimulate faculty collaborations.
