Marcus Selart is Professor of Strategy and Behavioral Science. He received his PhD in 1994 from Gothenburg University, and acted as Assistant Professor there between 1994 and 1999. In 1999, he was appointed Honorary Professor and Docent at the same university. Between 2000 and 2004, he served as Associate Professor at Linnaeus University (then Växjö University).
In 2004, he joined the Norwegian School of Economics where he held the position as Associate Professor between 2004 and 2008.
Within the broader fields of behavioral decision making and policy, Marcus Selart studies how people make judgments and decisions under conditions of risk, uncertainty, and ambiguity.
Areas of interest include behavioral change, public policy, risk governance, and choice architecture. An important research area is the analysis of cognitive processes in strategic decision making and how to overcome bias and inertia in these. Much focus is thus directed towards how managers make decisions affecting their performance outcomes, and how communications can be designed to improve these decisions.
Marcus Selart is an elected fellow of the European Association of Decision Making (EADM), the International Association of Research in Economic Psychology (IAREP), the Society of Risk Analysis (SRA), and Faculty Row.
He teaches the elective master courses Managerial Decision Making (in English) as well as Leadership and Organizational Decision Making (in Norwegian).
