In today’s world of increasing competition, one has to strengthen the company’s position in the market. The knowledge of how to assess the consumer is important in order to succeed. Consumer Marketing involves understanding whether, why, when, where and how much, how often, and for how long consumers will buy, use or dispose of an offering. This lecture also deals with what affects consumers as they make their acquisition, usage, and disposition decisions. It further fosters an understanding of advertising campaigns and communication strategies. The primary objectives of this course are to get a detailed understanding of the internal processes which determine human behavior, to expand the student’s knowledge of consumer decision-making, and information processing, and to develop skills and gain experience in formulating behavioral pricing and product development coherences.

Each participant will get a detailed understanding of the internal processes which determine human behavior. The students are able to enroll and analyze real experimental data and create scientific papers. As the module is held in English, it enhances the students’ ‘Business English skills. The group work is undertaken in form of a research project. The results of the group work have to be presented in front of the class.
