International Behavioral Economics Association (iBEAF)

iBEAF at Brandeis IBS


iBEAF aims to better understand the cognitive reasoning that influences businesses, financial markets and global economic behavior, and thereby prepare its members to excel in the international workforce.

By combining the expertise in international economics and finance at Brandeis International Business School with concepts from both the Department of Psychology and the Heller School for Social Policy at Brandeis University, the club explores a multi-dimensional understanding of behaviors in economics and finance. With a sustainable foundation in place as behavioral concepts are explored, the club will improve and expand to meet the needs of the student body in both academia and extra-curricular activities.

Events and Highlights

In the 2014-2015 academic year, iBEAF assisted Professor Blake LeBaron on a research project that analyzed returns of mutual funds which market themselves as behavioral economics versus mutual funds marketed traditionally.
