COURSE DESCRIPTIONS (for Special Topics & Seminar Classes Not in UTC's Main Class Schedule- MKT 5000, MKT 5660, MGT 5000.1)

 FIN 5000.0 (26090)- Behavioral Finance
This course is designed to provide students with information on how individuals and firms make financial decisions, and how those decisions might deviate from those predicted by traditional financial or economic theory. Students explore the existence of psychological biases in financial decision-making, and examine the impacts of these biases in financial markets and other financial settings. The course examines how the insights of behavioral finance complement the traditional finance paradigm. Prerequisites: FIN 3020 or FIN 5820.

 

 MGT 5000.1 (24915)- Global Management Consulting

The design of this course is to introduce graduate business students to the profession of management consulting as well as provide an overview of the global management consulting industry. This course is relevant to those students who may wish to pursue a career in management consulting.

 
MKT 5660.0 (20742)- Seminar in Marketing (Services Marketing)
 

MKT 5660 is an elective seminar course in services marketing for graduate business students. The course premise is that organizations whose core product is a service (e.g., banks, utilities, hotels, hospitals, professional services, etc.) require a separate and distinct approach to marketing—both in strategy development and operational execution. In addition, manufacturers often provide service as part of their market offerings, requiring them to become proficient at delivering quality service. Great customer service can be an effective differentiation strategy for many firms, as seen by the success of companies such as L.L. Bean, Nordstrom, Federal Express, Amazon, Southwest Airlines, USAA, and others. Building strong customer relationships through quality service is at the heart of many organizations today, making service an essential core competency. This course investigates topics such as the characteristics of services and service customers, customers’ service expectations, service quality, service operations, service recovery, customer satisfaction and complaint behavior, customer loyalty, and customer retention.
