About the institute
The El-Erian Institute of Behavioural Economics and Policy (EEI) at Cambridge Judge Business School, is dedicated to researching human behaviour and decision making, and its implications for the formation and implementation of public policy. By leveraging the combined expertise of faculty at Cambridge Judge Business School and researchers across the University of Cambridge, the Institute aims to identify new ways to address social challenges and improve lives. EEI was created by a generous donation from University of Cambridge alumnus Dr Mohamed A El-Erian. The donation is divided between the University and Queens’ College.
We are delighted to be the home for the El-Erian Institute, which will greatly benefit Cambridge students and our research agenda in important areas related to behavioural insights and how they impact economic policy. The Institute is a welcome strategic addition to the Business School, as there is a great fit between the EEI’s work and the programmes, research, and other activities at Cambridge Judge.
Who we are
The El-Erian Institute team is made up of a diverse group of faculty, fellows and affiliates, visiting scholars and centre alumni.
What we do
The EEI is engaged in various research projects on behavioural economics, behavioural public policy and management, and sustainability. The EEI offers teaching on topics such as behavioural economics and sustainability, and collaborates with degree programmes including MBA, Executive MBA and MPhil at Cambridge Judge Business School. Upcoming activities include hosting the 3rd International Behavioural Public Policy Conference on 23-25 June 2024.
