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.
The El-Erian Institute of Behavioural Economics and Policy is an integral part of Cambridge Judge Business School. Behavioural economics and insights illuminate the intricate ways human behaviour interacts with decision-making processes, shedding light on opportunities to enhance collective well-being and sustainable development.
