Fredrik Nordin is a full professor of business administration, specializing in marketing. Since 2016, he serves as the Head of the Marketing Section at Stockholm Business School. He holds a Ph.D. in Business Administration from the Stockholm School of Economics (2005) and an M.Sc. degree in Vehicle Engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm (1991). He has also studied Business Administration and Spanish at Stockholm University. Prior to his academic career, he spent over ten years in various positions in business, primarily within the Ericsson Group.

He has also supervised many bachelor's and master's theses and successfully supervised to completion several doctoral students' Ph.D. dissertations. In 2009-2011 he was in charge of the master's program in marketing and between 2011 and 2014 he was the director of studies at master's and doctoral level.

Research

Fredrik’s research interests lie primarily in the area of marketing in innovative, and high-tech firms, focusing on how providers of technology products and services can help customers create value. He has focused on issues such as business relationships/networks, digitalization, emerging technologies, servitization, solutions offerings, purchasing/outsourcing,  innovation, and managerial decision-making in marketing. In his research, he attempts to address issues that are also of relevance to business practice. Usually, his research is qualitative and phenomenon-driven, often carried out in collaboration with companies. It has appeared in highly regarded academic journals such as Industrial Marketing Management, Journal of Business Research, Journal of Service Management, and Journal of Business and Industrial Marketing.  

He is a member of the editorial boards of Industrial Marketing Management and Journal of Business Research and has co-organised a number of academic conferences in business administration and marketing, including NFF (2011) and CBIM (2017). He currently serves as a panel member of the Research Council for Culture and Society at the Academy of Finland.
