Experiments are widely used in economic research because they provide an opportunity to test hypothesis in a controlled, replicable, environment. The course Experimental Economics 1 provides graduate students with an introduction to experimental economics by discussing various important topics in the field. Each discussion will be led by an expert and will focus on recent findings as well as design- and methodological issues.
All non-CentER students should ask formal permission from the Director of Graduate Studies in Business BEFORE the start of the course.
Please send your request for permission including grade list, CV and motivation letter to CentER Graduate School at email@example.com. Note that asking permission is not just a formality.
