Decision Making in a Complex and Uncertain World

Lex Hoogduin, University of Groningen

To learn how complexity and uncertainty influence and constrain our decisions.

Our world seems to ever become more complex and uncertain. Future leaders must be able to act under these conditions. This course provides you with the broad scientific background necessary to develop yourself into one of the future’s key decision makers. First, this course will address the core concepts of complexity and uncertainty. Next, guest lecturers will related sub-fields. Finally, relating this all back together in case studies about financial stability and city development will conclude the course.

Anyone who needs to make decisions in a complex and uncertain context (e.g. managers and project coordinators). The course will be taught at undergraduate level. Basic knowledge of economic, financial institutions, mathematics and logic will be helpful.

In this course, we use the free Netlogo software to interact with agent-based simulation models.
