Description

Business Psychology deals both with the relation of the individual with their work, and with the relations of people at the workplace. The MSc Business Psychology was designed in order to provide all the necessary knowledge and scientific background to those who wish to as professional psychologists in this sector. The particular sector is characterized by significant growth, given that Human Resources Management in an increasingly challenging market environment where the amangement of crises is frequent constitutes a critical success factor. The programme has a contemporary and realistic orientation and is mainly addressed to psychologists. However, its competitive advanatge and significant difference compared to most programmes in that area is that it is also addressed to other higher education graduates (e.g. graduates in Business Administration, Human Resources Management, etc). Students will study the models, concepts and practical applications of Organisational Psychology, for the best understanding and optimum handling of attitudes and behaviors of people in the contemporary business. Organisational Psychology constitutes a sub-discipline of Applied Psychology and is aiming at increasing the efficiency of an organization/company/system and the work satisfaction and prosperity of workers. The programme covers all eight fields of knowledge and professional education required from those who work in this sector. Teaching includes lectures, seminars, workshops, guest speeches, presentations and analysis of actual case-studies as well as educational visits to companies and organizations.
