Course content

This dynamic programme combines the resources and expertise of the Department of Social Policy and Department of Management to present an integrated suite of courses that will advance your career objectives in all areas of behavioural science and allow you to pursue new and expanded opportunities within the behavioural science field. The Executive MSc is a 16 month programme from September of every year and comprised of six half unit taught courses (eight months) and a full unit dissertation (eight months).

You come to London and attend LSE for the six taught courses during three two-week sessions taking place in September, January, and April. Each course consists of a minimum of twenty-two hours engaged in seminar activities or interactive lectures at LSE. In between sessions you have online support from faculty, including online office consultations, and interactions with other student groups.

The dissertation is an original piece of research that develops ideas and tools learned in the courses. It is on a topic you select, and falls in your professional or personal research interest. You will have clear guidelines shared with other students, and are supervised by a faculty member. If you wish to pursue a PhD the dissertation may form the basis for your eventual doctoral thesis.
