Course Summary

Our MSc Business Psychology programme is accredited by the Association for Business Psychology and is designed for students without a BPS-accredited undergraduate degree who wish 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 or 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 master's in Business Psychology equally accessible to both full-time students and part-time students in full-time employment looking to further develop their career.
