The Customer Analysis course seeks to explore the fundamental issues of conducting scientific research in the area of customer behaviour. In addition, this course provides students with in-depth and advanced level insights in the (sometimes irrational) behaviour of customers. By the end of this course, you will understand how emotions, social norms, expectations and context can often lead us astray. Moreover, you will gain insight into how these irrationalities can affect your personal life, your business life, and the way you look at the world.
For the Consumer Behaviour part an advanced textbook and a series of academic articles will be used as a backbone. For the research part a statistics book will be used (cf. book that is used in Research for Marketing Decision Making)
