Are you interested in business processes and how the interplay of human thinking, action, decision-making, and experience contributes to the success of a company? As part of the Bachelor’s programme in Business Psychology, you will learn to analyse interpersonal behaviour in a business context and put it to use to achieve goals in business. Whether in market research, marketing or HR, the jobs at the interface between individuals and companies offer countless opportunities. 

The Bachelor’s degree programme in Business Psychology will provide you with knowledge about psychology and business in order to better understand, interpret, and shape complex relationships within businesses.

Personnel Developer

Companies undergoing major change processes profit from personnel and organisational developers who prepare employees for their new duties. This is done by organising training courses and seminars. Conflicts might arise as part of restructuring processes. As a personnel developer, you will intervene as an arbitrator by advising employees or conducting individual coaching.   

Recruiting Manager

As a recruiting manager you search for new talent for your company. This job description is currently in a state of flux: until recently, companies only waited for applicants to apply for an open position. Now, you can actively approach candidates via social media channels and online job exchanges.   

Change Management Consultant

Companies are constantly exposed to rapid changes. To remain successful in the long term, all stakeholders have to be involved in the process. As a change management consultant, you support company management and employees in all kinds of corporate realignments, show how change can be structured and managed, and help develop new forms of cooperation.
