FIN7528: Behavioral Finance
3 Elective Credits
In this course we will examine how individuals and firms make financial decisions, and how those decisions may deviate from those predicted by traditional financial theory. We will explore psychological biases in financial decision making, and examine the impacts these biases have on financial markets and financial decision making. In addition, we will examine how the insights from behavioral finance complement and conflict with the traditional finance paradigm of efficient markets populated by rational participants.
