Peter Pan was an Economist: Msc in Behavioral Economics at University of Nottingham

In the far distant future when I finish my Masters in Mathematics here at Portland State, I’m considering getting a second Masters in Economics.  A particularly interesting program is the one at the University of Nottingham in Behavioral Economics.

Behavioral Economics consists of much of what I like most: Game theory, emperical research, an honest assesment of how people actually think, and is open to biological approaches to understanding why people do what they do.

Here’s a post by a guy who just finished up at Nottingham with an MSc in Applied Economics talking about his dissertation.

  1. The MSc course at Nottingham is fantastic for behavioural and experimental economics. There’s a good range of academics who are really knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the field, and I really do believe CEDEX is one of the leading research departments.
