Introduction to Behavioural Finance
  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • Behavioural finance is a new and exciting area in economics that combines the psychology of human behaviour with the traditional theories of finance and economics. The result is a new explanation of how modern economics work, such as how markets are affected by the behaviour of investors.

    In this course you will learn how neoclassical economics defines rational and irrational human behaviour and how behavioural finance questions these definitions. You will also learn how behavioural finance is questioning long-held beliefs in economics, such as how individual demand curves can be applied to the market in general.

    This course will be of great interest to professionals in the areas of economics, finance and psychology who would like to learn more about behavioural finance and how it is developing a new understanding of modern economics and finance.

  • At the end of this course learners will be able to: - Describe the role of behaviour in economics - Describe what is rational behavior in economic theory - List the Axioms of Revealed Preference
