The Consumer Psychology course is a specialized course in the Strategic Marketing Master program that seeks to explore the fundamental issues of conducting scientific research in the area of consumer behavior. Being able to investigate how consumers behave and understand why they do so is the key contribution of Marketing to business practice. Managers who really understand their consumers develop better products and promote their products more effectively. The course Consumer Psychology focusses on a set of psychological constructs relevant for consumer behavior. Every week we discuss one relevant topic in consumer psychology, such as self-control, financial constraint, or nudges, and explore its impact on consumer behavior. As a bonus you will also learn how much fun consumer science can be, and gain a unique insight into how consumer psychology can affect your personal life, your business life, and the way you look at the world.
