about the program
Nothing impacts the bottom line of an organization more than its people. With a business psychology degree, you'll gain the skills needed to work effectively in the management and structure of human organizations, employee engagement and the development of human resources.

Blending behavioral science and business courses, business psychology prepares you to understand the unique differences among people and how that can impact business effectiveness. You will be well prepared for further graduate study. If learning how to manage, motivate and organize people for the healthy practice of efficiency and effectiveness is your passion, business psychology is the major for you.
