Dozierende Joshua Klayman (joshua.klayman@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt We will examine theory and findings from research in Consumer Behavior. This area builds on knowledge from psychology to understand the behavior of consumers. Most weeks we will examine a single journal article to explore the researchers’ methods, their conclusions, and the implications of their findings. To get an impression of topics in this area, look at the tables of contents of the Journal of Consumer Research or Journal of Consumer Psychology.
Lernziele Get acquainted with research in consumer behavior and with reading and interpreting academic journal articles.

Literatur Journal articles from the academic consumer behavior literature (e.g., from the Journal of Consumer Research, the Journal of Consumer Psychology, or the Journal of Marketing Research) and some closely related research from psychology and management journals.
