Description

Overview
Our MSc Business Psychology programme is accredited by the Association for Business Psychology and is designed for students wishing to develop a career in personnel, human resource management or as a business consultant.
Taught by experienced researchers and practitioners, you will be given in-depth training to equip you with the ability 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.
A blended learning, block teaching approach is used to make our MSc in Business Psychology equally accessible to both full-time students and part-time students in full-time employment looking to further develop their career.
On successful completion of our Business Psychology programme, you should be able to:
communicate effectively to a wide range of different stakeholder groups and in a number of different formats
apply constructive and structured approaches to complex problem-solving and intervention evaluation even in the face of uncertainties and incomplete information
manage personal learning efficiently and effectively through an appreciation of the skills and capabilities needed to apply psychology effectively in work settings
develop and utilise the advanced research skills needed to work with complex data and research / practical agendas
