Psychology is, in many ways, integral to business success. From understanding what consumers want and the nuances of product design to obtaining the talismanic perfect alignment of the needs of people, workplaces and organisations, it is the awareness of what motivates and influences people that drives business.
To put it simply, business is psychology, and graduates with advanced knowledge and practical skills in the field of psychology are therefore highly sought after within wide-ranging organisations across sectors.
Drawing on 25 years of psychology and business expertise, Loughboroughâs Business Psychology course offers you the opportunity to study the core areas of psychology as required for BPS accreditation alongside modules that apply psychological principles to the world of business and management.
Some of your modules will be taught by a team of expert business psychologists from within the universityâs highly ranked School of Business and Economics, who currently include the authors of Work Psychology, Europeâs leading textbook in the area â Dr Ray Randall and Professor John Arnold.
