Abstract: During the last 20 years, Romania has been passing important social and economic transformations and it is considered today as a developing country aiming to adjust its processes and features to those of UE countries. The significant increase in the number of bachelor programs supplied by various faculties is one of the issues we can refer to in order to explain the great interest paid to a proper economic education. The aim of this paper is to argue that, despite the big number of the economic programs, the Romanian curriculum is structured such that students can’t benefit from a proper understanding of Economic Behavior. The authors argue that Behavioral Economics should be included in curriculum as being the trigger in students’ awareness in respect to integrating some weaknesses of making economic decisions process.
