B.Sc. in Business Psychology

Distance Learning (3 years)

Psychology plays a role in every aspect of our lives and society – including in Business. It affects the mental health and well-being of people, plays an important part in education, in sports and leisure, in economics and consumer trends, in the resolution of conflicts between people and countries, and in recruitment for businesses. Students interested in people’s behaviour, and who are keen on using skills and knowledge for the good of others, society, and of businesses, may find this course a perfect fit.
Students investigate the reasons why human beings do things, how people do them and how humans relate to others as well as to the world at large. Students are provided with opportunities to explore how others perceive, think and use ideas; vary in personality as well as to understand the influences of particular environments such as work, school and family.
This degree is aimed for those wanting after the completion of their studies to work in HR or in any other business setting. It is not intended for those wanting to become therapists or health professionals.
