OverviewThis module concerns the intersection of marketing and consumer behaviour ? the products and services people buy, why they buy them, how they fit into their lives, how they dispose of them and why this is of strategic interest to marketing. In order to be successful, an organisation must understand the lifestyles, personalities, values and contradictions inherent in its consumers. This module is designed to give a practical and theoretical primer to these issues, addressing important work on consumer memory, learning and decision-making, sustainable consumption, brand communities and children?s consumption. The second term of this module focuses on the completion and presentation of viable marketing plans by students encompassing the main elements of matching marketing objectives to marketing strategies and driving business growth.
