Experimental Economics Lab

Participate in an economics experiment—you will be paid based on the decisions you make and for your participation. No knowledge of economics is necessary. 


Seminars and Lectures

We believe in fostering a rich and vibrant research culture — Throughout the year, faculty and leading international researchers are invited to share their work and foster discussions as part of our series of seminars/lectures.
