MKTG 202 Consumer Behaviour: Reading list

MKTG 202 Consumer Behaviour


Department: BSc Business management & BSc Accounting & Finance
Module Description: This module aims to develop students’ understanding of consumer research and its usefulness for marketing management in its application to how consumers behave.  Conclusions from consumer research are not always directly accessible and are often also ambiguous in their messages; as such the course aims to reflect our current understanding of consumer behaviour drawing on disciplines such as sociology, psychology and consumer culture studies.
