Laura Kornish

Professor of Marketing

Leeds School of Business, University of Colorado Boulder

Laura Kornish is a professor of marketing at the Leeds School of Business, University of Colorado Boulder. She served a term as department chair starting in 2017.

Laura's current research is about idea generation and selection in innovation. One finding from that work is that early, systematic data collection on initial “raw” ideas is helpful in making decisions in new product development.

One of the arcs in her teaching career has been helping business students get better at working with data and mathematical models. Laura taught Decision Models in the MBA program at Duke (Fuqua School of Business) from 1998-2005. Since then, at Colorado (Leeds School of Business). She has worked with all levels of undergraduates and masters students on intelligently using data, in product development, in digital marketing, and more generally across business. Laura worked with the CU Math Department to develop a novel required math class for the business undergraduates. That course is an answer to the question, “What kind of math do business professionals need to master?”

Laura's research has been published in several journals including Marketing Science, Management Science, Operations Research, and Journal of Consumer Research. She currently serves on the editorial review board of Marketing Science.

What interests you?

15 to Finish

Boost the number of students who are on track for on-time graduation by encouraging enrollment in 15 credits each semester (30 credits per year, including summers). Financial aid dollars, as well as institutional process and practice, should support that standard.

Math Pathways

Ensure all students enroll in and complete gateway math in their first year by designing math courses that are aligned with the skills students need for their chosen program of study.

Corequisite Support

Increase gateway course completion within the first year by enrolling entering students into the college-level math and English courses, providing those who need additional help a concurrent course or lab that offers just-in-time academic support.

Momentum Year

Build momentum so students meet first-year benchmarks: informed choice of meta major or major, enrollment in 30 credits with nine in the program of study and completion of gateway courses. Provide early support and guidance for decision making, using interest assessments and labor-market data.

Academic Maps with Proactive Advising

Default students onto highly-structured academic maps that include 15 credits per semester (or 30 per year), indicate milestone and pre-requisite courses, and empower advisors to effectively monitor progress and provide intervention as needed.

A Better Deal for Returning Adults

Increase degree attainment by inviting adult learners back to complete their education, providing a redesigned system that offers accelerated courses, year-round enrollment and predictable schedules. Give credit for prior learning and experience and additional support to help students navigate the system.
