Behavioral economics is the science of how and why people make decisions. Its successful deployment in companies from Google and Facebook to the World Bank, has convinced business schools to offer specialists master’s degrees in the subject.
Business schools have teamed up with other academic departments to jointly offer master’s degrees in economics, or dual degrees in related fields such as finance. Gradautes will go on to work in government, central banking, international organizations and private sector groups such as economic consultancies. In addition, these courses also serve as an excellent foundation for PhD programs and other research-focused roles.
Financial services have gotten a bad rap since the global financial crisis, but it remains one of the most attractive and lucrative career paths. See the Top MSc in Finance programs here.
