Meet Pablo ... small classes and a special approach to education prompted him to enrol at Maastricht University. An extra benefit, he says, is the international composition of the student population, which gives you many different points of view and different approaches to the same problems.
Human Decision Science
***Awarded 'Top Rated Programme' label, Keuzegids 2018***
Are you interested in human behaviour, psychology and empirical research? Do you love coming up with solutions to complex problems? And would you like to be the person people look to whenever a difficult decision has to be made? Then the master's programme in Human Decision Science is the perfect programme for you. It takes the clarity of economic and game-theoretic decision analysis, and combines it with the human factors of bounded rationality, biases and emotions from psychology. You'll study different facets of both fields, ranging from the neuropsychological basis of decision making to the mechanics behind decisions on a macro level. After completing the programme, you'll be able to work on complex decision-making problems and you'll be well equipped for a career in senior and executive positions.
