Gelbman Family Chair of International Business and Professor of Marketing Marc Fetscherin, in collaboration with Slovenian professors Maja Konecnik Ruzzierb, Saabina Ivanov, and Mitja Ruzzier, has published the paper “Brand Hate Internationally: A Validation Study from Slovenia” in the prestigious Journal of International Consumer Marketing.

The article assesses brand hate across cultures and shows that consumer dissatisfaction with brands, image insurgency between the consumers’ self-image and the company image, and corporate wronging trigger the feeling of hate for a brand.
