By developing your BI skills and knowledge, you can make evidence-based policy and product decisions to increase your strategic impact.

What BI Programs does UBC offer?

Learn how to add a BI lens to how you approach problems by enrolling in UBC’s Fundamentals of Behavioural Insights course.

  • This course is next offered Apr. 22-May 12 on Thursday evenings 5-7pm Pacific. This will be the last offering before the deadline for applications for the 2024-2025 cohort in the Advanced Professional Certificate in Behavioural Insights.

Learn how to develop and test appropriate BI solutions for different challenges by applying for UBC’s Advanced Professional Certificate in Behavioural Insights.

  • The certificate is rigorous BI Practitioner training that combines live online coursework and a capstone project to help you develop your BI knowledge and skills.
  • The program runs September-May each year. The early-bird deadline for the 2024-2025 cohort is May 31.

What do program alumni say?

“I would recommend the UBC Advanced Professional Certificate in Behavioural Insights (BI) to anybody looking to advance their experience and education in BI. I chose this program as it is the only BI certificate being offered in Canada. The virtual nature of the certificate allowed me to continue working full time during the program. Since completing the certificate, I was given the opportunity to serve as the Lead of the BC Behavioural Insights Group for six months.”
