Welcome to the Decision Sciences Collaborative at The Ohio State University. Over 100 Faculty Members and Graduate Students at Ohio State are actively engaged in research and teaching related to the Decision Sciences Collaborative.
The Decision Sciences Collaborative builds on the knowledge that people are bombarded with too many decisions and too much information. People cannot effectively absorb so much information and so have developed a series of mental shortcuts to assess risks and make choices quickly and efficiently. The collaborative develops basic theory in decision making and uses it to help people improve their decisions and, ultimately, their well-being.
