Markus Giesler (born July 20, 1976) is a Canadian economist and marketing professor, specializing in the study of markets as social systems. He teaches at the Schulich School of Business. His research examines how ideas and things such as products, services, experiences, technologies, brands, and intellectual property acquire value over time, [1] technology consumption, [2] moral consumption, [3] and the role of multiple stakeholders in the market creation process. [4] Before doing his PhD in marketing, Giesler spent ten years operating his own record label and recording business in Germany. [5] In 2014, he was named “one of the most outstanding business school professors under 40 in the world.” [6] Giesler is also the creator of the blog “Shaping Markets,” which develops a sociological perspective on market creation and customer experience design.
