Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

Contemporary approaches to neuromarketing studies within the scope of the marketing mix will be seen in relation to an added value to marketing research and practice. Specifically, the focus is on the nonconscious processes and emotional responses that are difficult to put words on. Topics such as attention, habits, behaviour, memory, preference formation and decision making are covered. The course provides an opportunity for students to deepen their understanding of how brand elements, design, advertising, store atmosphere are processed in the human brain and body. Furthermore, the course gives insights into the benefits of neuromartketing in short term planning and into long term marketing strategy.
