Concepts and theories covered in this course are essential for consumer analysis and the development of effective marketing strategies. A strategic orientation will permeate most facets of this course. At the same time, knowledge of consumer behavior requires an understanding of important theoretical concepts borrowed from fields such as social psychology, consumer psychology, and experimental psychology.
