Understanding the psychology of consumers is key to this subject. You will get to grips with the motivations, thoughts, feelings, decision-making and behaviours of a target audience. You will also think about how a consumer interacts with their social, economic and cultural environments to achieve their goals.
Consumer behaviour underpins all marketing activities and policy formulation. The ability to understand, interpret and predict consumer actions is therefore incredibly valuable in the working world. It is vital to the success of any business venture, policy think-tank or trade organisation in the corporate, public or voluntary sectors.
