BATON ROUGE – Ofer Mintz, finalist for the ISBM dissertation proposal competition and assistant professor in the Department of Marketing, authored an article recently accepted for publication in the March 2013 issue of the Journal of Marketing.


The article, “What Drives Managerial Use of Marketing and Financial Metrics and Does Metric Use Impart Marketing Mix Performance,” examines the managerial logic behind why managers employ certain marketing (i.e., non-financial) and financial metrics when making marketing decisions and whether use of such metrics can improve marketing mix performance.


“An analysis of 1,287 marketing mix activities reported by 439 U.S. managers reveals that firm strategy, metric orientation, type of marketing mix activity and firm and environmental characteristics are more useful than managerial characteristics in explaining use of marketing and financial metrics and use of metrics is positively associated with marketing mix performance,” the paper states.


Mintz, who has presented research on marketing analytics and social media marketing at some of the leading business schools worldwide, received his Ph.D. in marketing from the University of California, Irvine. His teaching interests include marketing management/analytics, social media/online marketing, and international marketing.
