Collective Intelligence Master Degree

Description

Objectives

The Masters in Collective Intelligence will train students in the basic pillars of collective intelligence, including cognitive and data sciences as well as participatory methods and organizational design. Particular emphasis will be placed on mastering experimental and statistical techniques for testing the effectiveness of different methods for maximizing collective intelligence. Students will gather experience applying these methods in research and/or real-world settings.

Career Outlook

Interest in collective intelligence is on the rise in corporations, universities, and society at large. This program will prepare graduates for a range of careers as data scientists, information systems or technology management experts, and human resources or organizational transformation specialists.

Program Highlights

  • Masters students in Collective Intelligence will learn to think critically and scientifically about data, human behavior, and practical problems such as leading positive behavior change within teams, organizations and communities.
  • They will learn how to carefully design behavioral experiments and randomized controlled studies, in which experimenters manipulate variables between experimental conditions in order to infer causal information about how the mind works and/or the effectiveness of certain interventions within organizations.
  • In addition, students will develop technical skills in the areas of data science, statistics and computer science (e.g., designing computer systems to augment and complement collective
  • reasoning and problem-solving). Finally, they will gain experience designing and applying technologies that reinforce collective intelligence in real-world settings.
