Prof. Raj Raghunathan studies the impact that people’s judgments and decisions have on their own happiness and fulfillment. Based on his research, he teaches a very successful online course on Coursera on Happiness (named “A Life of Happiness and Fulfillment”). The course has 200,000 students from virtually every country in the world. It is rated with a total score of 4.8 (from a maximum of 5) by 2,500 students and is one of the highest rated academic courses. In addition, the course is ranked as the best MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) for 2015 by the Class-Central.

Raj Raghunathan is the author of “If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy?” and a professor at the University of Texas McCombs School of Business, where he relies on themes from psychology, behavioral sciences, decision theory and marketing to explain consumption behavior.

Raj’s work has appeared in leading marketing journals, and been cited in several mass media outlets, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Austin American Statesman, The Houston Chronicle, and Self magazine.
