Psychology provides insights that help us to understand the behaviour of people in business and organisational contexts. This course uses knowledge of the human mind and our behaviour as a basis to investigate fundamental organisational functions, such as human resource management, finance, marketing, strategy and technology.
You will learn how psychological theories and research can be applied successfully to:
recruit, select and assess employees
train and motivate people
develop individuals’ careers.
This course is also available for part-time evening study over four years.
This programme is run by Europe’s oldest department of organisational psychology.
We have an active programme of research, with particular expertise in organisational psychology and human resource management.
All of our academic staff are active researchers as well as enthusiastic teachers and publish cutting-edge articles in the world’s leading journals.
