Entry requirements

The University of Liverpool Management School continues to welcome applications that fulfil our admissions criteria in order to select a balanced international student cohort. However in order to maintain the high quality of student experience, programmes will stop accepting new applications from certain countries once the number of offers from these countries exceed the target. As students from different countries tend to apply at different points in the application period, applications from some countries may close earlier in the year. In these cases we will aim to provide a 3-week notice period to the affected country, prior to any programme closure.

Course content

The University of Liverpool Management School is one of an elite group of institutions worldwide to hold the gold standard 'triple-crown' accreditation from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.

Designed and delivered by leading academics and experts in their field, the new MSc Organisational Psychology pathway within the established MSc Occupational and Organisational Psychology programme, is now open for application for students without a BPS accredited Psychology bachelor’s degree.

The pathway focuses on developing a new generation of practitioners in occupational psychology who can make a positive difference to effectiveness and well-being of people and organisations.
Programme Overview
Teaching draws upon the latest evidence and cutting-edge research to cover all major aspects of organisational psychology, enabling students to develop a critical understanding of how research into human behaviour at work can be applied to enhance the effectiveness of people and organisations at work.
Core areas include: leadership, motivation and engagement; well-being at work; work design, organisational change and development; psychological assessment at work; and learning, training and development. Students also undertake a supervised empirical research project, building their knowledge of research methods in psychology and developing skills in the conduct of research in organisational contexts. In doing so, the MSc Organisational Psychology equips students with the knowledge base and practical skills necessary for a career in occupational psychology. It also provides a strong foundation for those who would consider progressing to a Doctor of Philosophy programme.
Applicants with a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited Psychology bachelor’s degree should apply for the MSc Occupational and Organisational Psychology programme, which is accredited by the BPS.
The MSc Organisational Psychology is based within the Work, Organisation and Management (WOM) Department in the University of Liverpool Management School.
Designed and delivered by leading academics and experts in their field, the programme is directly informed by the research of WOM members, including:
  • Professor Yves Guillaume’s research on work group diversity and leader-member exchange
  • Dr Joanne Lyubovnikova’s research on teamwork, authentic and servant leadership
  • Dr Pascale Daher’s research on gender and leadership
  • Dr Mariella Miraglia’s research on absenteeism and presenteeism behaviours and wellbeing
