Marketing at UBC provides options in these streams:
- Consumer behavior seeks to understand the psychology of consumption, and why consumers think, feel and act the way they do. This domain draws its inspiration from psychological, sociological and anthropological theory, and typically uses experimental methods to explore research questions.
- Marketing modelling develops mathematical representations of buyer and seller behavior. It draws on theory from economics and consumer psychology to study marketing phenomena with a high degree of mathematical rigor. Using management science and operations research methodologies, the modeling of marketing phenomena leads to improved understanding and better decision making. Students in this area also concentrate on the estimation of marketing effects in time series and cross-sectional data.
- Marketing strategy overlaps these first two, while incorporating elements of general management studies. At UBC, strategy is not usually treated separately, and tends to be studied equally by behaviorists and modelers.
