The Psychology of Economic Life programme from London School of Economics and Political Science provides skills for change management and improving socio-economic systems and business models towards more sustainability, by leveraging social values and technologies with a realistic psychology. We are interested in making the world a better place. In that perspective, you will learn how to think outside of the box and apply new approaches to behavioural design. Assessment is part of the learning process and makes use of case studies. These are examples of student essays from the compulsory course, Psychology of Economic Life.
You will take compulsory courses in the Psychology of Economic Life and Methods for Social Psychological Research. You will then choose from a range of optional courses within the Department (eg, consumer psychology, decision-making, corporate communication, creativity and innovation, advanced theories for economic life) and the School so that you can deepen or widen your expertise, and take up the advanced study of particular aspects of economic life. Over the summer period, you will complete a dissertation based on empirical research.
Graduates of our Department enjoy employment opportunities worldwide in consultancy, government, international organisations, corporations and companies, but also non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and charities. This programme provides skills to the fast-growing demand for innovative and more sustainable ways of doing business. You may choose to continue to obtain a PhD and pursue an academic career.
