Garrett Meccariello and Tobias Nasgarde, who will complete Penn’s inaugural Master of Behavioral and Decision Sciences (MBDS) program this August, found a practical way to apply the skills they’ve learned in the program.

“We’ve all been on websites where you have a one-click purchase. You don’t have time to think, ‘Do I need this?’” says Nasgarde. “Research has shown that when you’re in a cashless environment you spend a larger amount and you buy a larger number of items.”
