In addition to a discussion of the basic principles of consumer behavior, emphasis will also be placed on critical evaluation of the supportive evidence, and the research methods used to investigate consumer behavior. Offered spring semester only. Prerequisites: Lower-division common business core courses, the core curriculum math requirement, and Busad 124.
