Semester Frühjahrsemester 2024
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende C. Miguel Brendl (miguel.brendl@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt The course is appropriate for master’s students in business, economics, or psychology, as well as for PhD students.

The course focuses on psychological theory that is the basis for theories in consumer behavior. It has a methodological emphasis by teaching you how to conduct research using experiments. This course is a precondition for writing a master’s thesis in behavioral marketing. But beyond that it is of particular interest if you want to explore what academic research is like.

-For those without a prior degree in psychology the course offers a crash course in psychology as it relates to preferences (attitudes, feelings, evaluative judgments, choice).
-For anyone interested in behavioral sciences the course offers the opportunity to practice an important skill: deriving behavioral predictions from theories. This skill goes beyond merely describing a theory and is important for anyone who wants to actually use a theory, be it for research or application.

During the seminar we discuss your homework solutions to a set of exercises. From this discussion we draw inferences about theory itself and about designing experiments. The entire course is in English.
Lernziele • Obtaining an overview of fundamental psychological concepts in preference formation and choice.
• Learning about the nature of theory construction and theory testing by means of experiments (heavily emphasized).
