Requirements and Details

The selection committee prefers recommendations by board certified behavior analysts and faculty from whom a candidate has taken courses.

The committee also accepts recommendations from a candidate’s immediate supervisor provided he or she is able to attest to the candidate’s aptitude for graduate training. While the strength of a candidate’s clinical skills will be of interest over time, clinical skills alone are not necessarily tied to one’s ability to successfully complete graduate school.

Relevant work experience involves the development and implementation of behavior analytically-based interventions.

Relevant academic experience includes credit and non-credit instruction in the principles and procedures of applied behavior analysis. Non-credit courses, workshops and conferences also reflect well on an application but are not given the same weight as credit courses.

Competition for limited places in the Applied Behavior Analysis program may require the necessity of a wait list. The wait list decision day is May 15.

MA in Behavior Analysis

Behavior analysis is a well-developed approach to solving social/emotional, behavioral, and learning problems for many different populations in many different settings. The M.A. program in Behavior Analysis focuses on the experimental, theoretical, and methodological aspects of the analysis of behaviors of individuals and how these behaviors denote different types of learning processes or problems. The processes at issue have become an efficient basis for understanding, and for changing, such behavioral disorders as are termed developmental disabilities and autism-spectrum disorders.

The program requires the completion of 36 credits, includes a thesis and is designed so that all requirements can be met within two years. The curriculum consists of 21 credits in basic courses in behavior analysis and experimental psychology, 9 credits in electives and 6 thesis preparation credits. Applications are accepted until August 1.

The Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Inc. has approved the course sequence PSY 607, 651, 657, 658, 704 and 705 as meeting the coursework requirements for eligibility to take the Board Certified Behavior Analyst Examination. Applicants will have to meet additional requirements to qualify for board certification.

Role andPurposes

This course contributes to the achievement of 3 learning goals (LG) mentioned below. For the purpose of accomplishment of these objectives, this course provides basic understandings and skills in the Organizational Behavior (OB) field. We learn how we can effectively manage modern organizations and “people” inside. Organizations we deal with are profit-seeking corporations, public agencies, and all other forms of non-profit bodies, given they consider their activities as work, not hobby or mere socializing. What kind of knowledge and skills are required to manage an organization, which is consisted of a few, or thousands, of people? First, we need to be able to explain behaviors of various individuals and groups—which are considered as complex of individuals—in orderly way. Next, we need to be able to analyze and predict the individual and group behaviors. Only after overcoming these challenges we will be capable of managing, or leading, the entire organization.
The terms such as management or leadership should be used carefully, since they evoke very diverse and heterogeneous implications among people. As we proceed with the classes, we will gradually clarify what we mean by managing and leading organization, under the context of modern society.

Course Learning Goals

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
(1) Demonstrate understanding of leadership concepts and practices (LO3-1)
(a) Engagement in active listening and conduct of 2-way, or multilateral conversation
(b) Making constructive suggestions to deepen the group discussion
(c) Exercising necessary leadership or followership behavior in the group discussion when needed

Course Description

Upon successful completion of this course, you will have comprehensive understandings about the nature of working people’s mind, the various phenomena which occurs under the situation of group work, and the mechanism of organizational structure. Also, you will be better prepared to lead your organization, either small or large, under solid foundations of OB theories and concepts. Cases are designed so that you will be gradually exposed to various simulated experiences which serve as anchors of your managerial behaviors in the future career.
Good understanding of Organizational Behavior is essential for ANY roles you assume upon graduation, as far as you work with other people. Being equipped with OB knowledge, you will be more capable of handling “people-related” issues in organizations.

Master's specialization in Behavioral Economics

'Behavioral Economics' is one of the specialized tracks of the Master's program in Economics.

Tilburg University is ranked #11 worldwide in Business and Economics (Times Higher Education, 2016).

Address economic questions around behavior and behavioral change

Many economic questions ultimately revolve around behavior and behavioral change.
•How to encourage households to waste less food?
•How to prevent fraud in organizations?
•How to stimulate employees to cooperate efficiently?
•How to foster trust in online markets?

The track ‘Behavioral Economics’ will provide you with the knowledge and skills to effectively address such questions.

Integrate insights from economics and psychology

The specialization track integrates insights from economics and psychology. It builds on the principle that policy advice should be evidence-based and cannot rely on theory alone. The starting point is that individuals are not rational self-interested maximizers but that human behavior is based on a bounded capacity to process information and on preferences that include a regard for such social norms as fairness and reciprocity.

Learn how to affect behavior by policies and strategies

In recent years it has become increasingly clear to firms, organizations, and governments that policies and strategies should take account of both the economics and the psychology of behavior. There is an urgent need for economists who have been trained to take a broader view, who have a profound knowledge of all relevant aspects of behavior and the ways it can be affected by policies and strategies.

Key courses:

•Seminar Economics and Psychology of Risk and Time
•Seminar Economics and Psychology of Social Norms and Strategic Behavior
•Methods course Experiments and Surveys

Career perspectives

This track is recommended to students who want to work in consultancy, policy advice and project management. The insights from behavioral economics are in high demand at financial institutions, insurance companies, multinational enterprises, as well as in regional and national government.

The MSc in Applied Behaviour Analysis is a highly interactive blended learning programme providing professionals from a wide range of backgrounds with scientifically validated expertise that is applicable to mainstream and special needs education, inclusion, curriculum, learning, and pedagogy. The programme includes a Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB®) approved course sequence (4th Edition Tasklist) (practice element not included).
This programme should be of interest to professionals wishing to become Board Certified Behavior Analysts, to those in the ‘helping’ professions (e.g. teachers, speech/language therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists) and students preparing for PhD studies.
The Centre for Behaviour Analysis is well connected both locally and internationally and unique project and employment opportunities arise on a regular basis.

What is Applied Behaviour Analysis?

"Applied Behavior Analysis is a well-developed discipline among the helping professions, with a mature body of scientific knowledge, established standards for evidence-based practice, distinct methods of service, recognized experience and educational requirements for practice, and identified sources of requisite education in universities." – Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB)
Behaviour Analysis is the science of behaviour. This means that we are interested in everything a person does, including what we feel (emotional behaviour) and think (cognitive behaviour). When this science is applied to enhance or develop socially relevant behaviours we call it Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). There are many applications, for example, to enhance or teach communication and language skills, social skills, reading and other academic skills, life skills, business or classroom management, and many more. In other words, ABA is utilised to help many people in many situations.
Due to the effectiveness of the intervention methods and teaching techniques based on ABA, the demand for behaviour analytic services has increased worldwide, not only for individuals with autism and other special educational needs, but also for application in the mainstream inclusive classroom and many other educational, clinical, or general life contexts.

BACB Recognition

Professionals who are Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBA) have the skills and knowledge to develop, implement and evaluate quality interventions that help to produce positive behavioural changes in a range of settings. The six modules of the MSc ABA cover the required academic curriculum. The programme presently does not include BACB practice requirements, but we have many national and international affiliate organisations who welcome our students and offer placements (some are paid, some unpaid) and supervision (in person or online). Supervised practice requirements can be undertaken while you are studying on the MSc ABA.

Career Opportunities

The majority of students are already in relevant jobs and the job market is healthy for BCBAs at present. Professionals who are certified BCBAs have the skills and knowledge to develop, implement and evaluate quality interventions that help to produce positive behavioural changes in a range of settings. Typically, behaviour analysts work in the ‘helping’ professions (e.g. teachers, speech/language therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists). Increasingly, jobs advertised for behaviour managers or specialists require BCBA status.
There is an increasing demand for BCBAs in Europe and worldwide, especially in North America. Teachers as well as allied health professionals should find this degree beneficial in their workplace.

This programme is aimed at those wishing to specialise in applied behaviour analysis. The course is designed to develop advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of the basic principles of behaviour analysis and the application of the principles within clinical and research settings. The programme has been developed by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) in collaboration with the Behavior Analysts Certification Board (BACB). It covers their entire Task List specifications and is recognised by the BACB as providing the content eligibility criteria necessary to sit the full BCBA exam.

The course consists of two parts. Part One comprises taught modules designed around the BACB Task List. The first four modules introduce the basic theory and practice of the science and the second four offer more detailed analysis of both applied and research procedures. On successful completion of Part One, you will proceed to Part Two - a clinical research study, planned and conducted in collaboration with your BCBA-qualified research supervisor.
Teaching is done through a combination of taught workshops, seminars, specialised computer-based instructional packages and practical 'hands-on' research experience. We provide a high quality teaching and learning environment that is intellectually stimulating and that uses the principles of behaviour analysis. This requires innovative course content and instructional procedures, measurement of learning, flexible communication among students and staff, and a friendly and supportive environment.
The full course leads to a Master's degree, but it is designed to be flexible to meet the differing needs of our students. For example, you may choose to take a smaller number of modules for a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma, or for CPD purposes.

Course detail

Dramatic technological developments have changed the way we obtain information, make decisions, and interact. Marketing experts have to understand these changes and the way they affect strategies for new product development, customer relationship management, branding, and other marketing efforts.

The MSc in Marketing program prepares you for this challenging environment. It combines cutting-edge theory and practical applications. Students acquire the skills for creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers through customized products and services.

Our students have an outstanding academic record and embrace international mobility. They have strong analytical and conceptual skills, an interest in analyzing practical issues, and in translating their findings into operational marketing plans. Company projects provide excellent opportunities to put their learning experience into practice.

Format

Choose from seven electives: Retail and Sales Management, Service Marketing and CRM, Marketing Management, International Marketing Management, Marketing Communication and Consumer Behavior, Marketing Project Management, and Interactive Marketing and Social Media.

Almost all of the courses count a maximum of 30 participants. All classes are extremely interactive with a high degree of team work, which creates a collaborative and entrepreneurial atmosphere.

First Year

In the courses of the first year you develop the core knowledge and skills. You will gain thorough grounding the areas of customer-focused marketing and consumer behavior, research tools and planning techniques, as well as strategic and instrumental aspects of marketing. Furthermore, you will start linking ideas from different areas of your study subjects.

Second Year

In the second year students can specialize in the areas of their interests through several electives to choose from. Additionally, students have the option to develop more towards the qualification as a marketing specialist / executive function or an academic / advanced marketing management consulting career. The second year also offers opportunities to gain international experience through an exchange semester at a partner university or – for selected students – through a double degree with the Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi, Italy.

Study abroad

50% of our students study abroad. Additionally to an exchange semester at one of WU's 120 prestigious partner universities, selected students can gain a double degree by doing their 2nd year at Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi (Milan, Italy).
