Brand Preferences During Identity Transitions

This research studies changes in brand preferences emerging from an identity transition. Results show that mixed feelings about graduation can lead students who normally prefer student-symbolizing brands to like these brands less. We investigated the process explaining why students are more ready to “move-on” in terms of their brand preferences.
