        Why A Certificate in Behavioural Science?

        From public policy to advertising and digital media, there is a rapidly growing demand and value for organizations to use Behavioural Science to design solutions and solve complex challenges. But :

        •  How and where are Behavioural Science insights applied?
        •  What are the frameworks for assessing and implementing interventions?
        •  How do you invent a "nudge" and design solutions for complex problems?

        This unique programme will equip you with a toolkit of scope, theory and implementation to provide you with the “know-how" for applying behavioural science for both personal development and in your professional role. 

        Taught by behavioural science specialists at the Centre of Social and Behavioural Change, who work at the forefront of behavioural change interventions for positive impact, this programme is specially designed for working professionals across industries.
