Program description

The Track Economic Psychology studies the psychological mechanisms that underlie consumption and other economic behaviors.

It is an area where psychology and economics intersect. It deals with economic preferences, choices, decisions, and factors influencing these, as well as the consequences of economic decisions.

In our program, students are trained in economic reasoning and learn how to apply psychological knowledge and theories to understand the decisions and motivations that underlie consumption and other economic behaviors in daily life. They will develop an understanding of the basic principles of the psychology of economic behavior, and as such our graduates become experts on consumer behavior, financial behavior, negotiation and bargaining.

The focus of the current program is on basic theories of economic behavior, basic theories of consumer behavior, and more specific courses on marketing and money. Our program provides students with comprehensive in-depth knowledge and excellent skills in economic psychology, enabling them to work independently at a professional level in a relevant field.
