“Shop Builder allows us to recreate the sort of platforms that the larger retailers have and it gives us an opportunity to do things that, unless you have very large budgets, you just would never be able to achieve.”

Historically, it’s been difficult for researchers to give students relevant practical experience investigating consumer decision making.

And gives them a valuable case study and skills to make them stand out to future employers.
