Objectifs

Good judgment and decision making skills are important, both in private and professional life. Not doubting that making wise decisions can be considered an art, the present course focuses on the scientific aspects. The goal is to equip students with an overview of major paradigms in judgment and decision making research, including both interesting phenomena and theoretical frameworks.

Contenus

We start with historical foundations of behavioral decision making, then (critically) discuss some common judgmental biases and decision traps, have a closer look at models of bounded rationality and at decisions under uncertainty and risk, and finally cover special aspects such as individual and cultural differences, and emotions. Specifically, the list of topics looks as follows (subject to change):

Introduction        

History and Foundations

Heuristics and Biases

Heuristic and Biases Revisited

Intuition - Fast and Frugal Heuristics

Preferential Choices under Risk

Managerial Decision Making.

Références
