Human Desicion Science

095 maastricht health campus 550x280 um

Human Decision Science is a master program in English at Maastricht University.

Offered jointly by the School of Business and Economics (SBE) and the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN), Human Decision Science combines the best of two worlds. It takes the rigour and clarity of economic and game-theoretic decision analysis, and combines it with the human factors of bounded rationality, biases and emotions from psychology. This programme thus goes beyond the traditional, monodisciplinary approach in understanding human decisions. It is a genuinely interdisciplinary programme that combines economics and psychology in all their different facets, from the neuropsychological basis of decision making to multinational institutions like the European Union
