Course Description

MGMT 220
Games and Behavior

This course applies game theory and behavioral economics toward understanding interactive human behavior, otherwise known as strategic decision-making. A major theme of the course is that game theory describes how people should behave in order to achieve certain objectives, while behavioral economics highlights many ways in which actual behavior deviates from what is individually optimal—primarily because of cognitive limitations and perceptual biases. By investigating these two subfields of economics, the course provides fundamental insights into human motivation and interaction in markets,
Offered every other year beginning 2020-21.
