Career opportunities

In this programme you will learn to make smarter, more effective policy, based on behavioural economics and psychology. The recent rise of Behavioural Insights Teams across Europe and the world has resulted in a demand for the skills offered in this programme. You will be provided with a toolbox filled with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle a whole array of economic problems, ranging from the role of consumers in a complex economy, through policy impacting on the decisions of firms, to analysis of the government’s role in economic policy.

The graduates of this programme devise behaviour-informed policies and learn to analyse critically which solutions are most likely to work in a specific economic and social context. They regularly find employment in government as well as business. Your career prospects are broad. The graduates are active as policymakers for government and semi-government organisations, in ministries, national banks, NGOs, think tanks, the UN and the EU, as well as national and international labour organisations, or work as consultants in the industry.
