Integrated M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Behavioural Finance

Studying Behavioural finance in an integrated manner resents us with new revelations about human behaviour in finance and pushes our imagination about finance in the real world. We now have a much deeper understanding of the biases affecting human behaviour, about the construct of rationality, and the response to incentives based on uncertainty and risk appetite. Similar to most individual consumers, investors in the finance industry also believe that they are better than average and fall prey to the same challenge: few asset managers or advisers believe that their investing ability is at or below average. This is why it is imperative to dig beneath the surface of behavioural finance and understand what psychological mechanisms construe these biases. This knowledge can then be utilised for making more informed and rational decisions. Advent of strategic technology in financial products and services has further complicated the process of marketing, consumer choice and risk management. This programme aims to help outstanding individuals become autonomous researchers and lifelong innovators by enabling them to develop the scientific training and skills required to define, conduct and complete interdisciplinary and global research projects that advance knowledge and practices in the areas of Finance and Behavioural Sciences
