This course seeks to provide a comprehensive understanding of how behavioral economics is applied in the laboratory, field, and corporate world. Behavioral economics is a relatively young field, and firms have begun implementing it within the last decade. In this course, students gain an overview of the topics in this fast-growing field by sampling the most significant and interesting contributions. This implies a lot of reading, so a secondary goal of the course is to learn how to efficiently digest and communicate the content of journal articles. To this end, students present a paper on the reading list in class. In addition, the final project requires students to design and present their own behavioral projects.
