Join McCombs Professor Raj Raghunathan for an exciting virtual guest lecture on happiness, followed by a Q&A. Raj relies on themes from psychology, behavioral science, decision theory, and marketing to explain consumption behavior. He also studies the impact that people’s judgments and decisions have on their own happiness and fulfilment.

Based on his research, he teaches a very successful online course on Coursera on Happiness (named A Life of Happiness And Fulfillment). His book (titled, "If you’re so smart, why aren’t you happy?") was released in the U.S., U.K., and India in 2016.

The event is jointly hosted by the Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, D.C. Alumni Chapters.
