Jiseon Ahn, a doctoral candidate in the College’s first cohort of Ph.D. students, and Dr. Ki-Joon Back have had their paper titled “Influence of Brand Relationship on Customer Attitude Toward Integrated Resort Brands: A Cognitive, Affective, and Conative Perspective” accepted for publication in the Journal of Travel & Tourism Marketing. Their study aims to identify and assess the antecedents of integrated resort brand loyalty from the perspective of Oliver’s (1997) cognitive, affective and conative theory of attitudinal brand loyalty.
