Risk and Insurance

Institutswebsite

Overview

In our research and teaching, we deal with risks and financial decisions under uncertainty. We particularly focus on behavioral economic concepts to explain individual decisions, for example the choice of insurance and investment products. In addition, we deal with current challenges in the financial and insurance industry, such as sustainability and cyber risks.

Teaching

In our diverse range of courses, we combine traditional concepts of insurance and risk management (including insurance management, insurance lines and business models, insurance risk management) with behavioral economic approaches and current topics (including behavioral insurance, qualitative and experimental methods, insurance customer behavior). In addition, we offer interesting practical insights through cooperation with the insurance industry (including practical workshops and guest lectures).
