Human Decision Science

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.

      Meet one of our most recent PhD graduates, Therese Grohnert. She wanted to know why audit firms sometimes form insufficiently supported judgements on their clients’ financial statements. Over the past years, these firms regularly received bad publicity because of insufficiently supported judgements. She examined the judgements of 252 auditors and discovered that only one third of those were sufficiently founded.
      Therese presented these results to the involved audit firms and succeeded in convincing them of the solution: learning at the workplace.
