Course Summary

Course Overview

Our Behavioural Economics MSc investigates the human and social issues influencing the decisions made by consumers, borrowers and investors. It looks at psychology rather than pure logic to understand the factors behind economic decision-making.

This course is informed by the world-leading research of the Centre for Decision Research and Experimental Economics (CeDEx). Our ideas of ‘nudge’ have become very influential and you will learn about the experimental methods used by our researchers and use our computer lab to conduct economic experiments.

With an advanced economics degree from the University of Nottingham, you will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence you need to stand out to employers and progress as a professional economist or academic researcher.

Careers

This course is particularly relevant if you wish to pursue behavioural or experimental economics research at PhD level, or a career in a wide range of fields, including finance.

It provides a logical and rigorous perspective on human behaviour which is valued by a wide range of employers around the world, in banking, business, consulting, government and academia.

Modules

This module covers: modern techniques of microeconomic theory; foundations and applications of game theory; information economics.
