The course will combine theory with practical examples in order to explore the key concepts of consumer behaviour: The consumer as an individual (understanding motivations, psychographics, demographics and cognitive processes) and social and group aspects of consumer behaviour (the role of friends, family and reference groups). The interactive nature of the course and portfolio of assessment will encourage students to reflect on their own experiences as consumers and develop their critical evaluation skills. This course will be useful for those interested in marketing and market research careers.
