Decision Theory

The course Decision Theory deals with the decision-making behaviour of people. The students learn how people decide and how they should decide. Methods and tools, especially the self-developed Entscheidungsnavi, are introduced to prescriptive decision theory, which can be used to help decision makers make rational decisions. An important focus is on the mediation of a number of decision errors that can arise through intuitive processes. During the last years, a bonus task was offered within the event, which led to a grade bonus of 0.3 or 0.4 in the examination if the participant participated successfully.

Seminar

In this course, students learn how to write a scientific paper. At the beginning of the seminar, a block session is held in which the students are familiarized with the theoretical basics of scientific writing, literature research, scientific citation and the time planning of a scientific paper.

Subsequently, the students will be assigned topics, for each of which they will write a term paper of approximately 15 pages. The contents taught in the block course are directly applied in practice. The paper is written step by step and in consultation with the supervisors. The results are presented by the students in a (graded) final presentation.

After completion of the seminar, students will be able to write a scientific paper and present it in front of a professional audience. The topic of the mandatory seminar changes every winter semester and is based on current research.

  • The course is intended for business administration students in the bachelor's program.
  • The number of participants is limited to 16.
  • Attendance of the course "Decision Theory" or knowledge of the contents taught is assumed.
