Über den Kurs

We make thousands of decisions every day. Do I cross the road now, or wait for the oncoming truck to pass? Should I eat fries or a salad for lunch? How much should I tip the cab driver? We usually make these decisions with almost no thought, using what psychologists call “heuristics” – rules of thumb that enable us to navigate our lives. Without these mental shortcuts, we would be paralyzed by the multitude of daily choices. But in certain circumstances, these shortcuts lead to predictable errors – predictable, that is, if we know what to watch out for. Did you know, for example, that we are naturally biased towards selling investments that are doing well for us, but holding on to those that are doing poorly? Or that we often select sub-optimal insurance payment plans, and routinely purchase insurance that we don’t even need? And why do so many of us fail to enroll in our employer’s corporate retirement plans, even when the employer offers to match our contributions? Behavioral finance is the study of these and dozens of other financial decision-making errors that can be avoided, if we are familiar with the biases that cause them. In this course, we examine these predictable errors, and discover where we are most susceptible to them. This course is intended to guide participants towards better financial choices. Learn how to improve your spending, saving, and investing decisions for the future....

"Rationality is an assumption in economics, not a demonstrated fact" I loved this course and all the content. It was kind of hard to understand since i don't have the basic knowledge about economics.

Great course! It allows to understand the twisted logic that run in our heads. Helps to establish the balance between probabilistic truth and illusions that infect our decision-making. Thanks a lot!

Its really nice to learn about this as it helps investors in making decisions after considering their irrational behaviour

The course is well designed, especially the case study examples. However, exercise questions are not that clear.

Good concepts but the lectures were a bit 'all over the place'. No as structured as I would have expected.

The course content is extremely good but the answers and explanations to the quizzes must be provided.

You should divide week two in 2 or 3 weeks. The concepts are interesting but nor very well explained.

Interesting topics, but the quality of the course, materials and tests is just disgusting.

Felt like most quiz questions were related to concepts not covered in the materials.

The lectures need to be improved and increased instead of putting more readings

There could be more explanations of behavioural biases in each example given.

More videos, inclusive of illustrations, can improve it a lot
