Cade is a Practice Professor in the Wharton School’s Operations, Information and Decisions Department. He received his PhD from the University of Chicago and taught at Duke and Yale before moving to Penn.
Cade’s research focuses on judgment under uncertainty – how, and how well, people predict what will happen in the future. His work draws on experimental and “real world” data such as employee stock options, 401k savings, the NFL draft, and graduate school admissions. His research has led to collaborations with Google, Merck and multiple professional sports franchises. Cade’s research has been published in leading psychology and management journals, and covered by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and The Economist.
He has taught MBA and Executive MBA courses for 15 years. Cade is faculty co-director of Wharton People Analytics, co-host of “Wharton Moneyball,” and co-creator of the Massey-Peabody NFL Power Rankings for the Wall Street Journal.
