Description

Advertisement

Increasingly, employers in both the public and private sector are looking for people with proven skills in staff development, identifying talent, coaching and work design. Employers and business clients look favourably on applicants with a masters qualification in occupational psychology or related fields (eg business psychology), particularly if they have work experience.

Business psychology is concerned with how people behave at work; it involves the study and analysis of leadership, selection, assessment, motivation, development and the organisation of people. Occupational consultants and coaches are also finding that a qualification in business psychology improves their practice and enhances their standing with clients. At Kingston, we have brought together our skills and knowledge in the areas of organisational behaviour and psychology to offer a course that enables you to apply theory in practice. The course ensures that you develop your understanding and skills to enhance the performance of people at work.

This Business Psychology MSc is designed for students who do not have a background in psychology. If you already have an honours degree in a British Psychological Society-accredited psychology course, you may be interested in our Occupational Psychology MSc.

What will you study?
An induction programme will introduce you to the Business School and the expectations and ethos of the course, during which you will complete psychometric tests, which will be used for personal and professional development throughout the programme. You will then look at the varying approaches to applying psychological principles to the workplace and how these ideas can increase organisational, team and individual performance in today's business environment.

The course will enable you to effectively apply theories and models of organisational behaviour to the work of business psychology, and will cover the eight main areas required by the British Psychological Society. You will critically evaluate the evidence base, ethical considerations and your role in organisations as a business psychologist to enhance your professional skills.

The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.
