Managerial Decision Making - 3rd Trimester 2020/21

3.5 ECTs / Trimester-Long Course / English

This course is designed to provide you with a better understanding of how you and other people think, feel, decide, and behave. One main objective is to increase awareness of the psychological processes that underlie the choices that people make, as well as systematic biases and heuristics that people have when making decisions. A second main objective is to give you a space to reflect on who you are and who you want and do not want to be, as well as provide tools for how to mindfully create a life that aligns with your goals. A third main objective is to better understand how to interact with oneself and other people in ways that are responsible, productive, and mutually rewarding. A last main objective is to appreciate the role of emotions and moods in how people decide and behave. All of these topics will be presented based on scientific research, including related interventions which can help people become more effective.
