Laboratory experiments are an increasingly important research methodology in finance. They allow to address questions that are not amenable to testing with field data. This course provides an overview of the experimental methodology with a focus on market experiments. It discusses methodological issues such as design choice, it familiarizes the students with the most important papers in the literature, discusses current research and, above all, helps students to develop their own research ideas and to convert them to workable experimental designs.
