The current saturation of markets makes it critical to know better consumers for the success of any brand. In the last decades, the research on consumer behaviour has been mainly carried on by applying self-reported methodologies. However, science has proved that consumer decisions involve not only conscious processes but also unconscious ones. Neuromarketing has awakened great interest in the context of marketing due to its ability to provide access to the unconscious reactions of the consumer. Definitively, the main purpose of this course is to provide the student knowledgeable about the basic principles and concepts related to neuromarketing. Therefore, throughout the course, students will learn how to measure unconscious consumer reactions to different marketing stimuli such as packaging, advertising, websites, mobile apps, etc. They will learn how to design research studies combining self-reported and neuromarketing research techniques. Also, this course will approach them to
neuromarketing data analysis and interpretation and will show the how to transform the results into valuable insights for companies, that result in lasting relationships with their customers and, ultimately, an improvement of their business results.
