In this Marketing Communication Department elective, students will develop a holistic understanding of consumption. This workshop explores the changes in our economic and environmental landscape: an upsurge in bartering, lending, trading, renting, and swapping. As the course progresses, students will work in teams and develop a business or event applying the principles of collaborative consumerism, covering all elements of the marketing mix.
