About the MSc Programme

This dynamic Executive MSc Behavioural Science 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.

Recognising the limitations of traditional practice and research methods, many organisations now engage with the idea of applying behavioural insights to their organisational challenges. 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.

This programme is based in the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science, which is an interdisciplinary faculty and research team, with research areas spanning across social psychology to behavioural economics, political psychology to organisational culture, consumer behaviour to public engagement, and community development to global health, happiness and well-being. The Department's research focuses on real world issues, thus their research is both theoretically well-informed, and produces results that impact policy, business, and society at large.

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 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. There will be various assessments and online support in between. You will also complete a 10,000 word dissertation on a topic of your choice.

Graduate Destinations

This MSc will prepare you to seek and/or advance your career in behavioural science in multiple sectors, including the public and private sectors, non-governmental organisations and academia. Upon graduation you can expect to take on more responsibility or pursue new and expanded opportunities within the behavioural science field.

Many alumni from this programme have gone on to set up and lead behavioural insights units within their organisations, or moved to roles where they have been able to apply principles of behavioural science within their professions. Some have set up behavioural science consultancy businesses, and others have gone on to further study.
