This course will introduce the most current knowledge in financial psychology. We will discuss a variety of issues related to money and financial behaviors, such as individual differences in approaching money, psychological and emotional mechanisms of money perception (e.g. illusion of money), symbolic meaning of money, attitudes towards money, irrational financial behaviors (e.g. time discounting, mental accounting), influence of money on motivation and happiness, the ethics of money behavior, property and ownership, self-control, fairness, risk taking, gambling, investing. All this will be achieved in an experience-based classroom environment. We will learn through real-life examples, case studies, videos, and hand-on classroom experiences. The focus is put on acquisition of both theoretical knowledge, as well as skills to be used in everyday life.
