The China Center for Behavioral Economics and Finance was established in 2018 to facilitate cross-disciplinary research in behavioral economics and finance. Under the leadership of Prof. Lei Zhen (Executive Director) and Prof. Chew Soo Hong (Special-Term Director), the center aims to produce high-quality research in economics and finance as well as genetic economics and neuro-economics.
We have a diverse mixture of Chinese and international faculty members specialising in theoretical research as well as experimental and empirical research. In the last 5 years, faculty members have published in top international journals such as Econometrica, Journal of Political Economy, PNAS, Journal of the European Economic Association, Management Science, Journal of Economic Theory, Economic Journal, AEJ:Microeconomics, International Economic Review, Games and Economic Behaviour, Economic Theory, European Economic Review, Scientific Reports and Psychoneuroendocrinology.
In addition to being research-focused, we also offer Master and PhD programs in both behavioral economics and behavioral finance.
