Master the Science of Behaviour Change

Transform your career and organisation with an Executive MSc in Behavioural Science from Durham University

How can you adapt to the challenges life throws at you? Have you experienced the same behaviour being successful in one situation but not another? Why do people behave in a certain way, and how can you help them to change their behaviour patterns to elevate your organisation to the next level?

The smallest change in how we communicate or structure social environments can have a profound influence on the way people behave and affect significant and lasting change.
