Master specialisation Behavioural Economics
The Master specialisation in Behavioural Economics is intended for students who want to further deepen their (financial) economic background and, at the same time, enrich it with psychological insights.
Behavioural Economics is a popular, new stream of economics based on the psychology of human behavior. It shows how economic predictions and policies can be improved using insights from psychology. The Master specialisation is split into: traditional economics and behavioural economics courses.
A student with a solid training in traditional economics and further training in Behavioural Economics is valuable to both the private and public sector. Training in traditional economics enables an economist to familiarise with the tools (financial) used to analyze and design policies and strategies. Training in Behavioural Economics enables him to recognise why some economic policies and strategies systematically fail and how to improve them.
