The ESADE Decision Lab located at the Rambla of Innovation, on the Sant Cugat Campus, is under the administration of ESADE Dean’s Office for Faculty and Research.
One of our goals is promoting innovation and providing the facilities and resources for conducting cutting-edge research. Our modern facilities allow our investigators to conduct research in a wide variety of fields such as marketing, behavioral economics, finance, consumer and organizational behavior, public policies and social action, among others.
