Business Psychology - Loughborough University

Psychology is vital for business. It helps line up the needs of people, workplaces and organisations through techniques like motivation, leadership and human resource management. It also helps us understand consumer needs and effective marketing. Businesses and other organisations depend heavily on the effective and ethical use of psychology. Graduates with advanced knowledge and practical skills in the field of business psychology are therefore highly sought after by a wide range of organisations across sectors. Drawing on 25 years of psychology and business expertise, Loughborough’s Business Psychology degree 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. You also have the opportunity to study business modules in other areas that interest you, such as marketing and international management. In the first two years about two thirds of your studies are core psychology required for accreditation by the British Psychological Society, with the other third the application of that core psychology in work organisations and optional other business modules. In the final year you can take your studies in different directions from predominantly core psychology to predominantly applications of psychology to business and business more generally. You also undertake a major project on a topic that interests you. Some of the modules on our BSc Business Psychology degree are taught by a team of expert business psychologists from within the university’s highly ranked School of Business and Economics, who currently include the authors of Work Psychology, Europe’s leading textbook in the area – Dr Ray Randall and Professor John Arnold. A Business Psychology degree will give you a fantastic grounding for a career in psychology, management, or related roles in HR, marketing or consultancy within major multinational companies, SMEs, non-profit or government departments. Our Business Psychology degree also carries the option of an employability-boosting year in industry on professional placement. Past students have secured prestigious placements in companies like Unilever, IBM, GSK and Warner Brothers, affirming the employability Business Psychology brings. In addition, there are extensive opportunities for studying abroad.
