If you already have a strong background in Economics, this course will enable you to study the advanced and growing areas of behavioural economics and the cognitive science of judgement and decision-making.

The programme emphasises both the theoretical foundations and real-world applications, drawing together research expertise from the Departments of Psychology, Economics and Warwick Business School.

To help prepare you for success, we’ll enrol you on to a two-week Mathematics and Statistics pre-sessional programme. The course is the ideal preparation if you’re aiming to work in business environments (e.g. consumer-led industries and the financial sector) or are interested in public policy and its implementation. It also provides an excellent foundation if you are intending to undertake further postgraduate research.
