Decision Insights for Business & Society


Upcoming Initiatives

UBC Advanced Professional Certificate in Behavioural Insights

Behavioural Insights (BI) uses decision science (psychology and economics) to help people make better decisions that promote health, wellness, and happiness. Working professionals can use BI to improve programs, policies, and products in ways that encourage positive changes in consumers, citizens, and employees. The Advanced Professional Certificate provides tailored BI practitioner training in a part-time program with 4 months of coursework and 5 months of mentored capstone project work.

A BIG Difference for BC

BIG Difference BC brings together Behavioural Insights (BI) experts from academia and the non-profit sector and policy experts from all levels of government, Crown corporations, and industry to create a strong collaborative network that can work across boundaries to use behavioural insights to solve policy challenges in BC.
