Course Syllabus

Abstract

Recently, it has been noted by economists that in many areas of decision making, individuals (and groups of individuals) often deviate from rational behavior in identifiable and predictable ways. The main goal of behavioral economics is to incorporate these biases into more accurate economic decision making models. In particular, economic theory is constantly being tested (and improved) using the methods of experimental economics. Practice areas such as marketing are also influenced by experimental methods and the results they generate. This course will expand students' understanding of decision-making processes, as well as introduce them to both formal models and economic experiments.

Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking Test 1
    "Homework" / "Test" includes several separate tasks, each of which has its own maximum score (listed next to the task itself). Solutions to problems must be submitted in writing - handwritten or formatted in the form of neatly typed text in Word or LaTeX with compilation in PDF format, with detailed explanations, graphs (if necessary), formulas, references to theoretical provisions (definitions, theorems). In extreme cases, homework can be submitted by email (scan), but as one file.
  • non-blocking Test 2
