Centre for Decision Research and Experimental Economics

Masters in Behavioural Economics


This programme offers advanced level training in core areas of theoretical and quantitative economics, (microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics, economic data analysis) plus an opportunity to specialise in behavioural economics. You will study behavioural economic theory as well as various empirical techniques including experimental methods. During the programme you will design and run at least one small scale experiment.

You will have the opportunity to meet with CeDEx PhD students and are invited to our regular programme of CeDEx workshops. The photo below shows Johann Graf Lambsdorff from the University of Passau presenting 'When to cheat? Balancing tax morale and financial gains' at the CeDEx Workshop on Wednesday 4 May 2016.

It is the ideal route both for high calibre graduates of economics who intend to undertake PhD research in behavioural/experimental economics, and those seeking entry to a wide range of careers where behavioural economics is increasingly important.

One of our former MSc students, Will Mailer, explains why he chose to study with CeDEx.
