Marketing PhD programs (the University of Colorado’s,in particular) can be an excellent place for students interested in social and cognitive psychology.
Several of our behavioral faculty have received PhDs in psychology or cognitive science (Phil Fernbach, Lawrence Williams, John Lynch, and Peter McGraw) and other behavioral faculty are doing work on consumer psychology (Nick Reinholtz, Bart de Langhe, Margaret Campbell, and Donnie Lichtenstein). They are publishing their research in top marketing journals (e.g., Journal of Consumer Research; Journal of Marketing Research) and psychology journals (e.g., Psychological Science, JPSP) See: http://www.colorado.edu/business/academic-programs/undergraduate-programs/marketing/faculty-marketing
If you have a good research background please look at our program (and the papers our faculty are publishing). Admission to our program at the Leeds School of Business is not as competitive as psychology programs (though it is not easy to get in) and the funding is highly desirable (typically five years at $25k per year). Moreover, marketing faculty jobs are relatively plentiful. We place students into jobs without the need for a post doc, for example. Salaries and teaching loads at business schools are also attractive for most of our program’s graduates. Our program has placed students at top research universities, such as Indiana University, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, University of Arizona, and Vanderbilt. Notably, we have a 100% placement record for our PhDs. You can learn more about our program here: http://www.colorado.edu/business/academic-programs/phd-program/areas-study/phd-marketing
