Executive MSc Behavioural Science

About the MSc programme

Recognising the limitations of traditional practice and research methods, many organisations now engage with the idea of applying behavioural insights to their organisational challenges. This dynamic programme provides the opportunity for full-time professionals working in any sector to obtain a graduate qualification in behavioural science, allowing you to pursue new and expanded opportunities within this emerging and exciting field. Behavioural science may be an area directly related to your current professional role, or you may wish to pursue the programme for your own personal or career development.

The programme is taught by specialists at the forefront of research in behavioural science, in a multidisciplinary environment with links to specialist research groups based in departments across the LSE and the Behavioural Research Lab. It is taught in a modular format, with courses taking place at LSE during three two-week sessions in September, January and April. In between teaching sessions you will also complete various assessments, and will have access to online support from faculty. You will also complete a dissertation on a topic of your choice.

This programme offered jointly from the LSE  Department of Social Policy and  Department of Management aims to provide a suite of high quality, integrated courses to benefit students in all aspects of leading practices in behavioural science.
