ECN 295-03 - Special Topic: Behavioral Economics

4 credits (Spring)
This course provides an introduction to behavioral economics. In it, students will explore how and why individuals and firms make decisions that diverge from expected or “rational” behavior. To do so, students will incorporate psychological insights into economic models, study how heuristics and biases shape human decisions, and work to understand how nudges might overcome these biases in some settings. 

Prerequisite: ECN 111
