Course summary

Studied on campus or 100% online, this master’s aims to develop your knowledge and understanding of key aspects of Business and Organisational Psychology. Upon successful completion, and through practical case studies, you will understand the individual, team and organisational factors that can affect workplace behaviours, such as decision-making, personnel selection and recruitment, motivation and teamwork, as well as the tools and techniques to manage such situations. As the course progresses, you will have the opportunity to develop their understanding of psychological and behavioural research design and analysis. Core modules include key Business and Organisational Psychology areas including work and wellbeing; psychological assessment at work; leadership, engagement and motivation; and learning, training and development. We offer a dedicated module in consumer psychology, which examines advertising psychology, brand management, the selling process and time management. We also provide you with the chance to enhance your critical thinking to develop key academic and research skills. A core part of the degree should be your literature review and business plan which comprises a supervised, but independently undertaken project. This will offer you an exciting opportunity to investigate in depth an area of specific interest, and alongside the review you will formulate a business plan or business idea related to the chosen topic. Topics can be anything from remote-working to zero hour contracts - you will also be contributing to the current understanding and practice of Business and Organisational Psychology.
