Smith School to Host Marketing Symposium on March 9
"Addressing Social, Business and Economic Issues via
Research in Judgment and Decision Making"
The University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business and the
College of Behavioral and Social Sciences are hosting a special day-long
marketing symposium on Friday, March 9, 2012, on "Addressing Social, Business
and Economic Issues via Research in Judgment and Decision Making." Decisions
have serious consequences, including for health, relationships, financial
well-being, national security, business, economics, politics and the
environment. What does state-of-the-art research have to say about human
judgment and decision making? And what are implications of these recent findings
for individuals and for policy makers?
Members of the Smith community are encouraged to attend a special panel
discussion moderated by award-winning New York Times columnist David
Brooks from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Frank Auditorium (1524 VMH). The panel will
include four prominent researchers from Columbia University and the University
of Pennsylvania, who will discuss how their research on judgment and decision
making can be usefully applied to social, economic and business issues. The
panel is part of the day-long symposium.
