The University of Warwick graduates are some of the most sought after by employers (High Fliers Research) so in the eyes of your future employer, you cannot make a better choice.
90% of the Behavioural and Economics Science MSc students who graduated in 2013 had secured employment or further study within six months of receiving their degree (GEMS). Behavioural and Data Science just started in 2017/2018, so we do not yet have this data.
Graduates go on to exciting careers working in public policy settings and private-sector businesses. The degree is also an excellent foundation for those intending to undertake further postgraduate research.
