Business Management and Psychology

Bachelor of Arts

A business degree with a focus on psychology

Psychology for Business

The Business Management and Psychology (BMP) bachelor degree programme is a business degree with a psychology focus, not the other way around. Approximately two-thirds of the lectures are business-related.

A fundamental understanding of psychology is a prerequisite in many areas of business. On the other hand, a grounding in business studies is extremely useful in the field of applied business psychology. This degree programme is designed for those who are planning a career in business and who also have a deep interest in psychology.

Practical work-related learning

The Business Management and Psychology programme has a practical orientation. What distinguishes it from most other business psychology degree programmes is that it prepares graduates for the working world, rather than for an academic career. Only teaching staff with many years of practical business experience teach on our programme.

We prepare our graduates for a wide range of exciting business settings such as Marketing and Personnel Management, but also Finance. Graduates can later take a consecutive master's programme either in business or in psychology.

As well as the workplace-oriented combination of business studies and psychology, we also offer an international learning environment characterized by innovation, individual respect and high academic standards.
