Consumer behavior

Consumer behavior (45 h)

This is an introductory course designed for students who want to gain a comprehensive understanding of Consumer Behavior. No prior knowledge of the subject or marketing is required.  

The syllabus is divided into three distinct units, each focused on specific topics. The first unit covers the basics; the foundations and applications of Consumer Behavior as an interdisciplinary field. The second unit explores the internal, cognitive, and emotional motivations that drive individual consumers. Finally, the third unit delves into how external and exogenous factors impact buyers within a complex societal structure, taking into account various socioeconomic, generational, gender, and cultural idiosyncrasies.
