Course Description and goals

We all continuously have to make judgments about various risks and uncertainties, and make decisions to obtain the outcomes we desire, often under time pressure. To succeed in today’s rapidly evolving business landscape and complex socio-economic environment, we need to excel as decision makers. Yet, behavioral economists and psychologists have convincingly demonstrated that our reasoning is often prone to mistakes, biases and narrow frames, which inevitably lead to losses and shortfalls.

This course improves reasoning, persuasion, creativity and decision making skills by analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of human judgment and thinking patterns. The sessions involve class exercises, cases, group activities, puzzles, readings and individual reflections which ensure that participants experience first-hand a variety of interesting and relevant decision situations.
