Junior Wins Truman Scholarship
Mikaela Wolf-Sorokin, a global studies and Hispanic Studies major, has won a 2017 Harry S. Truman Scholarship.

Selected from 768 candidates, Wolf-Sorokin is one of 62 recipients of the prestigious national scholarship designed to support the next generation of public service leaders. She is the sixth overall CMU student to receive this award and the first since 2009.
Understanding Decisions
Adolescents face many challenging decisions. So, do consumers.

A new paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows how collaborations between psychologists and economists lead to better understanding of such decisions than either discipline can on its own.
Helping Companies Win by Treating Customers Right
As consumers have better access to information than ever before, companies can gain a competitive edge by improving the  customers' experiences.

Peter Kriss (DC '12), lead research scientist at Medallia, applies research based in behavioral economics to help many of the world's largest companies learn about their customers faster to create better experiences.
