We all make shortcuts as we process new information. But how do those shortcuts impact our everyday decisions—particularly about financial matters?
That’s what the Certificate in Behavioral Finance, offered jointly by the Black School of Business and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, explores. You’ll learn to consider why financial managers make decisions to merge firms, pay dividends, or choose investments.
The certificate covers core content in social psychology, cognitive psychology, behavioral economics, and behavioral finance. The certificate requires a total of 18 credit hours and can be completed concurrently with a Penn State Behrend degree or via continuing education.
