Judith A. and Robert E. Griffin Experimental Economics Laboratory

Undergraduate students at USI have a chance to participate in economics and management experiments which are both fun and rewarding. Experiments are designed by individual researchers to study behavior in a wide range of social and business situations. Cash earnings are paid at the end of each session, and your performance greatly affects these cash earnings.
