We're ranked as one of the top 100 universities in the world
The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings for 2015 published on 12 March 2015 ranked Wawick as one of the top 100 universities in the world. Warwick's Vice-Chancellor Professor Nigel Thrift said: "This table reflects Warwick's success in establishing itself as a globally connected university with a reputation for creating new ways of thinking and achieving that makes us stand out from our competitors".
Excitement as the Projects Begin!
Right now everyone is launching the empirical work that will be the basis for their MSc project. Students are all embedded in the behavioural science laboratories across the University, working with professors, postdocs, and PhD students—many of whom were former MSc students on this course. We've got projects in measuring pure status in the car licence plate market, eye tracking and intertemporal choices, the link between personality and economic behaviour, nudge awareness, moral decisions, birth choices, and neuroeconomics among many. These are real live projects, which will be published in the top journals and have impact in industry and public policy. Projects involve laboratory experiments on campus and at our on-line laboratories and big data sets processed with the latest data science techniques. Happy science everyone! More here...
Colin Camerer visits
On Tuesday 10th February Warwick's Behavioural Economics Student Team hosted a seminar by Prof. Colin Camerer (California Insitute of Technology) where he talked about the neuroeconomics of financial bubbles. MSc student Rafael says "We were very excited to host Prof Camerer. Earlier in the day Colin joined us for a casual student lunch at the Dirty Duck where we talked about the rising field of neureconomics. His talk attracted students and faculty members from various departments and I believe it introduced many people to neuroeconomics and its applications".
