Our MSc Business Psychology programme is especially suitable for those students wishing to develop a career in personnel functions, human resource management roles or as business consultants in areas such as selection and assessment, organisational development and change and employee development
Taught by experienced researchers and practitioners, you will be given in-depth training to equip you to apply the science of psychology to a wide range of important business issues including: change management; employee selection and development; leadership; and work motivation, well-being and performance.
The strong emphasis on developing skills in critical thinking, consultancy, and working with organisational stakeholders will enable you to operate effectively at all levels within organisations. You can choose to extend and cement your practical skills by completing a research project that allows you to apply your knowledge to an organisational issue. Alternatively, you may conduct a focused literature review that examines how psychological research and theory may be applied to a contemporary business problem.
Block teaching of modules is used to make the course equally accessible to both full-time students and part-time students in full-time employment looking to further develop their career.
