The human side of economics: the impact of psychology on decision making

Why do people not always act as rational economic decision makers? How can we apply mathematics and psychology to improve our economic models? Contrary to assumptions in traditional economics, people do not automatically choose the optimal course of action, even if given proper incentives. Intrigued? Our Behavioural Economics programme brings you the skills to optimise strategies and policies by including the framing and context that affect people’s choices.

The skills-based specialisation addresses the psychology of decision making. In both mainstream and behavioural economics courses you will acquire both a deep understanding of economics and the skills to adapt strategies and policies to deviations from rational behaviour.

Erasmus School of Economics, where else?

Few universities offer this increasingly popular stream in economics. If Behavioural Economics is your programme of choice, Rotterdam, frontrunner in economics, makes perfect sense. Select the curriculum that suits you best, study among ambitious and inquisitive co-students and benefit from the expertise of the internationally renowned Behavioural Economics Group.

Careers

Countries like the US, UK, and the Netherlands, and companies worldwide increasingly use the insights from Behavioural Economics to shape their policies. With this specialisation you can either help improve products, marketing policies, negotiation procedures, contracts, and financial portfolios in business, or design and improve public economic policies and strategies. It’s up to you. Careers are possible in many sectors, including: 

  • Consultancy
  • Financial sector
  • Governments
  • Research

"It’s great to be able to combine the math and psychology of Behavioural Economics with the track of your choice"

Programme starts in September 2018

Modern businesses and organizations are increasingly involved in collecting and processing vast amounts of customer and operations data. The resulting (big) data are more and more seen as an important resource for businesses.

In the Data Science and Marketing Analytics programme, students focus on the tools and skills that are needed to analyze such (big) data in modern businesses and turn it into meaningful insights. In particular, Data Science and Marketing Analytics combines theory and practice from computer science, marketing, economics, and statistics, in such a way that the potential of big data can be exploited successfully to create greater value for the consumers and firms.

Careers

Data science has been dubbed the sexiest career of the 21st century, according to Harvard Business Review. Given the growing awareness of the possibilities of exploiting data science for marketing analytics in business, the data science skills acquired during the Data Science and Marketing Analytics programme are expected to provide graduates with excellent job prospects.

According to Trevor Hastie, the John A. Overdeck Professor of Statistics at Stanford University, it is all quite obvious: “Big data is everywhere - it drives web search, web advertising and quantitative finance, to name a few industries. Data Science plays a fundamental role in this new Economy. With its strong history in data modeling, Erasmus School of Economics is well poised to train a new generation of data scientists.

Data Science and Marketing Analytics graduates are therefore expected to have many job opportunities in various sectors of the economy such as (online) retailing, financial services, consulting, and health care. For example, many businesses and organizations are either setting up or expanding business analytics/customer analytics/marketing analytics units. The combination of marketing and economic knowledge with data science skills will be of great value to our graduates and the companies that hire them.
