Henrik Hagtvedt

Dr. Hagtvedt’s primary research interests are in experiential consumer behavior, including art, aesthetics, and luxury. His research has appeared in Journal of Marketing Research, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Consumer Psychology, Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, International Journal of Research in Marketing, NeuroImage, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, and Empirical Studies of the Arts. Additionally, Dr. Hagtvedt frequently presents his research at major national and international conferences. In connection with his research, he has also been interviewed by news outlets ranging from BusinessWeek to TIME.

Teaching interests include Consumer Behavior, Marketing Principles, Brand Management, and International Marketing. Having lived in seven countries on four continents, and having traveled extensively in dozens of countries around the world, Professor Hagtvedt brings an international perspective to the classroom.

Prior to his doctoral studies, Hagtvedt studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy, and he worked full time as an artist and exhibited internationally for several years. During these years, he had more than 25 major exhibitions in Europe and Asia. Additionally, he completed a Cand. Mag. degree in art history at the University of Oslo, Norway, before completing an MBA (Marketing) and PhD in Business Administration (Marketing) at the University of Georgia. The initial art-related experiences sparked his interest in marketing and consumer behavior, and today this background still contributes to his research and areas of expertise.
