Minor filed description

Courses represent current knowledge from behavioral sciences (economics, psychology, cognitive sciences, biology, etc.) putting emphasis on economic point of view. Acquired knowledge and analytical skills fit perfectly to positions in management, marketing and advertising, consulting and media. Minor specialization graduates become also excellent candidates for positions in public sector and international organizations. Students considering their professional career as academics would suit the specialization perfectly. Its graduates get recent knowledge from modern theories of perception, decision making and human behavior. Apart from the multidisciplinary theoretical approach students also get basics of experimental research, statistical data processing and interpretation. Graduate students are capable of taking a professional stand on complex economic problems and on disparate motives of human behavior.
