MSc Behavioural Science for Management

Welcome to the MSc Behavioural Science for Management programme.  We hope you are looking forward to starting your MSc Programme.

I am Dr David Comerford, the Programme Director for the MSc Behavioural Science for Management programme, and I look forward to meeting you when you arrive at Stirling University to start your MSc programme.

The University of Stirling Management School will be running a number of events in September to ensure that you settle in quickly and that you understand how your new university can help you with your studies.  These classes are extremely useful for you and attendance is compulsory.

It is very important that you arrive ready to start on Monday 11th September 2017, if you are unable to do so please let us know as soon as possible by E-Mail:

Stirling Management School Induction Lecture will be held on Monday 11th September from 1000 to 1200 hours (Macrobert Main House Theatre) and the induction lecture for the MSc Behavioural Science for Management programme will be held from 1400 to 1600 hrs in Lecture Theatre A5, Cottrell Building.

At the induction lecture you will get to meet your classmates and some of the academic staff who will be guiding your studies for the rest of the year.  I will explain the structure of the programme, discuss what we expect from you and take any questions about what you expect from us.
