Operations, Information & Decisions: Decision Processes Track, BS

The Decision Processes (DP) track establishes rigorous scientific foundations for describing, predicting, and improving the processes through which individuals and groups collect data and information, form judgments, and make decisions. This program examines descriptive theories and empirical research on human behavior that identify systematic biases in judgment and heuristics, or rules of thumb, that individuals and groups use to cope with complex decision-making and negotiations environments. It also examines the ways in which individuals and groups can make better decisions given their biases and information-processing limitations.
