About the Executive MSc programme

Uncover the science behind behaviour. 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.

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.

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.
