About the Anderson Behavioral Lab

 

Welcome to the UCLA Anderson Class of 2000 Behavioral Lab! The purpose of the Anderson Behavioral Lab is to assist Anderson-affiliated researchers in conducting behavioral research. To this end, the Anderson Behavioral Lab administers studies both in person (i.e., lab studies) and online. The research being conducted spans a wide range of topics, including judgment and decision making, consumer behavior and organizational behavior. This interdisciplinary research laboratory serves as a major resource to the UCLA Anderson School of Management, contributing to our reputation for excellence in academic research.
