14th Annual Dick Wittink prize for the best paper published in the Quantitative Marketing and Economics journal

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


The Dick Wittink Prize for the best paper published in the QME was established to honor the memory of professor Dick Wittink, George Rogers Clark Professor of Management and Marketing at the Yale School of Management, who died in June 2005. He was a member of QME’s advisory board.

Wittink was a true academic—curious and ready to embrace new ideas and methods—making significant contributions to marketing research and marketing practice. He played an important role in applying econometric methods to marketing problems, such as measuring the impact of advertising, sales promotions, and completion. Wittink also pushed the boundaries of methods like conjoint analysis. He was known for his fair mindedness and ability to look beyond the superficial to evaluate research based on its true merit. Wittink was a mentor and guide to many doctoral students and junior faculty members who benefited tremendously from his input and support.

The Dick Wittink prize is awarded annually to the best paper published in the preceding volume of the QME.
