Objetivos

Over the past several decades, financial theory has been based on the assumption that investors and managers are generally rational and that the prices of securities are generally efficient. However, recent studies suggest that markets are not efficient and that investors and managers are not fully rational. Behavioral finance offers a more realistic view of economic agents’ decision making. It argues that many facts about asset prices, investor behavior, and managerial behavior are best understood using models where at least some agents are not fully rational. In particular, behavioral finance uses psychological evidence to model investor and manager behavior in order to get a better understanding of the financial phenomena. The purpose of this course is to introduce the students to the new field of behavioral finance.

Resultados de aprendizagem e competências

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to have a good understanding of the major concepts of behavioral finance and to apply these concepts across a range of different economic environments.
