The Warwick Executive Diploma in Behavioural Science

Programme structure

The programme is delivered in four modules, each over four days at WBS London. 

While all of your modules will be taught within a one-year period, submission of your final assessed project and subsequent grading by our academic team can mean that the awarding of your Warwick Executive Diploma may extend beyond one year. Upon successful completion you will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Behavioural Science from the University of Warwick.

Learning in London, the financial capital of the world 

Opened in June 2015 on the 17th floor of The Shard, WBS London houses a 100-seat lecture theatre and a smaller one at 80 seats, plus seminar rooms and space to network. In October 2017 we announced that WBS is expanding our London base to include the 13th floor, increasing our footprint at The Shard by 50 per cent.

The Shard is situated next to the London Bridge transport hub so getting to us from anywhere in London, the UK, and international locations, could not be easier.

This is a face-to-face programme, allowing you to benefit from meeting your fellow executives and our teaching team in person. However if circumstances prevent you from travelling, hybrid learning is an option. Please contact us to discuss this further.
