Career Prospects

Applied psychology and management offers an added value not met by graduates from a single-subject background due to the integration of a psychological perspective. It will prepare you for international careers with a strong human element in government agencies, industry and other types of organisations, such as charities, consultancies and non governmental organisations. Applied psychologists in business are valued and respected within their various areas of expertise, particularly in the fields of advertising, career and organisational development, change management, counselling, human resources, marketing, occupational testing, selection and recruitment, and training. They often collaborate with other experts in business and their contribution is highly sought after.
