Business Psychology (MSc)

Prospects for the Master's programme Business Psychology

The Master's programme offers you a high-quality range of courses in small learning groups. It is characterised above all by its high practical relevance and the excellent supervision provided by the professors. The degree programme offers you interesting further professional training.

Potential employers expect psychology graduates to have sound application-ready knowledge of empirical research and intervention methods with the ability to develop or apply these independently for different issues. In addition, the following skills and characteristics are expected:

  • professionally adequate training,
  • Flexibility and the ability to work independently on issues in different fields of work,
  • Open-mindedness and strong communication skills,
  • ability to work in a team,
  • good command of English.

The three-semester Business Psychology Master's programme is geared towards these requirements:

  • comprehensive methodological training, e.g. as part of the methodological modules, but also in the compulsory elective subjects in business psychology, in which methodological knowledge is tested on applied questions from practice
  • Teaching specialised business psychology knowledge
  • Project-orientated teaching in small groups, which promotes initiative/independent work as well as communication and teamwork skills
  • Distinct application-orientation
  • Promotion of the ability to think flexibly by comparing the perspectives of business psychology and economics in different subject areas


The opportunity to carry out a project in cooperation with a company as part of the practical project promotes and supports the transition to a professional activity. In addition, this can also result in a topic for the Master's thesis with subsequent first employment after graduation.
