B.S. in Marketing


With more than 15 years of professional business experience, including owning and operating his own business, Professor Matthew Vollmer brings a blend of pragmatic experience and social science research to the Division of Business and Management at Keuka College. After years of customer-facing business development roles, Prof. Vollmer became fascinated with better understanding the consumer experience and unveiling the reasons that customers make purchase decisions.

During his doctoral training, Prof. Vollmer has been devoted to better understanding consumer experiences and the influence technology has on those experiences. His research has included consumers' technology acceptance of Artificial Intelligence, journalistic coverage and public perceptions of emerging technologies, dissemination of disinformation across social media, digital media’s influence on people’s feelings of loneliness, and digitally mediated communication of sexual consent among college students.

In the classroom, Prof. Vollmer remains focused on helping students discover how emerging technologies can be used as a competitive advantage for aspiring marketing professionals, and how technology will continue to change the marketing and business landscape throughout their careers. After providing historical context to explain the development of the current business environment, he encourages students to imagine what is possible for the future by exercising their critical thinking skills and encouraging students to remain solutions-focused in their work.

Prof. Vollmer is thrilled to be “back home” on Keuka Lake, a community that he has previously resided in and continues to spend a considerable amount of time visiting. During the summer months, he can be found spending time in his boat with his wife and dog, floating along the shores of Keuka College while reading and writing. He is also an enthusiastic advocate of Finger Lakes wines, and on occasion he will be spotted pouring wine at a local winery helping to perfect the Finger Lakes wine tasting and tourism experience.

In addition to Keuka College’s institutional accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the College has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE), located at 11374 Strang Line Road, Lenexa, Kansas, USA.
