Dr. Waluyo Budi Atmoko, MM achieve his doctorate after defending his dissertation entitled “Emotions as Explanatory Factors of Ethical Buying Behavior and Moderation in the Relationship between Intention to Ethical Buying Behavior and Ethical Buy Behavior in the Context of Local Brand Purchases”, in front of the examiners. This study produced two conclusions, namely the main problem to encourage changes in ethical buying behavioural intentions to ethical behaviour is the effort of the gap between intention and behaviour.
