Most memorable moment as a professor:

When in the first week of teaching, an undergraduate student asked if I had any idea when the professor would show up to start class

When I got invited to speak to the EU Commission

“If I weren’t a b-school professor…” I would have loved to be a fashion director or film producer

Professor Nina Mažar, a leading researcher and teacher in behavioral economics, is a recipient of numerous awards in both Canada and internationally. She investigates consumer behavior and is best known for her work on dishonesty and moral decision-making. When she’s not teaching behavioral economics in the Rotman MBA and Rotman Commerce programs or presenting research to international government and non-governmental agencies, she fills her time coordinating the school’s Behavioral Economics in Action group—a research cluster that partners with non-profit organizations, companies, and governmental agencies to use research findings to solve social problems such as financial literacy, obesity, and fraud.
