Certificate in the Science of Decision Making

Programme Purpose

This programme will introduce learners to the science of decision-making. A critical skill for managers is the ability to make effective decisions while using good judgement. The programme is designed to help students become effective decision-makers who are able to make the most of their two modes of thought; ‘system 1’ which is fast and allows us to make fast initiative decisions and ‘system 2’ which is slower and more analytical. The programme draws heavily on key findings in the field of decision-making research and demonstrates to students the overlap between multiple disciplinary fields such as psychology, economics, marketing and HR. It examines how individuals (managers, customers, investors and entrepreneurs) and groups of individuals (top management teams) make strategic decisions under uncertainty as well as the factors that affect their decision-making processes.
