Content

Understanding the behaviour of consumers and the factors that influence their behaviour is critical to successful marketing managers, CEOs, and company directors. This unit examines consumer behaviour in a broad frame, and considers consumer behaviour from a critical and practical perspective. Students will be challenged to think broadly in the context of consumer behaviour and its application to marketing. We use multiple media platforms to examine how consumer behaviour is used and can be used in successful, contemporary commercial, government, and non-profit contexts. The disciplines of psychology, social psychology, behavioural economics, philosophy and sociology will form the foundation for topics examined in this unit.
