This programme is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). From September 2017, students of this programme will graduate with the dual award of a Bangor University Masters and a Level 7 CMI qualification in Strategic Management and Leadership.This joint Masters degree is designed for graduates wishing to start, or further develop, careers in Consumer Psychology and Business. The programme is delivered by schools which enjoy an international reputation in their field.

The marriage of both disciplines is a natural one, as understanding behaviour and specifically consumer behaviour in the world of business can be crucial to the success of businesses.

Today’s successful businesses and organisations need highly trained people who can help them understand their consumers and understand issues such as: What makes them choose one product over another? Do brand names and advertising really affect our thinking? Will the internet change the face of urban and suburban shopping areas?

Watch Professor James Intriligator talk about Consumer Psychology in this video.
