The Warwick Executive Diploma in Behavioural Science

Implement initiatives to your work using behavioural science   

We are currently in the process of introducing some exciting changes to the suite of Warwick Executive Diplomas. We are confident that the developments will be beneficial to you and your organisation, by adding greater flexibility and choice within the overall framework. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss the changes with a member of our team.

In the last 5-10 years, Behavioural Science research has grown immensely, with many organisations looking to implement behavioural insights into their key strategic goals. Behavioural Science can be utilised by leaders to bring a number of benefits to an organisation, such as incentivising team members and ensuring wellbeing, achieving a greater understanding of consumer behaviour, and increasing efficiency within an organisation, without needing a significant financial investment.  

Our Executive Diploma in Behavioural Science will provide leaders and their organisations with an in depth introduction to behavioural science, along with knowledge and practical skills that can be implemented straight away. The course will explore behavioural science insights into consumer and market behaviour, leadership and negotiation, effective team management and organisational culture, and the most effective ways to implement behavioural insights in the real world. 

The course is ideal if you have leadership experience, but want to develop a deeper understanding of behavioural science and how to effectively implement it to your work.
