Lecture on Decision Making & International Admission Talks

Decisions are a part of life and while they range in complexity, we face various decisions on a daily basis. How can we make decisions that lead to optimal outcomes? The answer highly depends on the types of decisions being made. However, in scientific research, scholars tend to utilize one standard approach to decision making: conducting hypothesis testing by proposing null hypothesis (H0) as well as alternative hypothesis (H1). The idea is to collect and analyze data to determine whether we have enough confidence to reject the null hypothesis (H0) and momentarily accept the alternative (H1). However, undoubtedly useful in some circumstances, the application of such approach cannot fit all types of decisions. Dr. C. James Yen’s lecture focuses on contrasting two types of decisions—managerial and judicial—and shows how managerial and judicial decisions should be made differently.

Dr. C. James Yen is an assistant professor at Peking University HSBC Business School. He received his PhD in Organization and Strategy from Washington University in St. Louis. His research revolves around strategic decision making and how it differs from other types of decision making, such as investment decision, consumer choices, as well as judicial judgment. He will give a lecture on Decision Making from managerial and judicial perspectives at 3 pm, November 18th in PKU International i-Center (2nd Floor, Building No.5, PKU Zhongguanyuan Global Village).
