The role of economic models, by HEC Professor Itzhak Gilboa

The HEC Paris - AXA Chair for Decision Sciences aims to improve our understanding of how decisions are made and how we can support better decision making, in light of cognitive limits and psychological constraints. The collaboration provides an opportunity to explore the links between effective decision making and successful leadership. This conference brought together Professors from all over the world, giving a glimpse of the network effect that can be nurtured by this fund. This Chair is devoted to sponsoring academic research, workshops and conferences, and brings together researchers from various disciplines.
