Why study Bachelor of Business (Psychology)?

Understanding how people think and how their decisions can impact businesses is a highly sought-after skill.

This course gives you the knowledge and confidence to apply psychology in business environments and develops your knowledge of core business, psychological and behavioural principles.

The degree offers core units that introduce you to the key areas of business, including marketing, accounting, management and economics, while the 10-unit psychology major will give you the tools to help people and businesses fulfil their needs and potential. It will help you develop a range of skills, from assessing the suitability of job applicants, to resolving conflict between employees, to counselling staff members with personal or professional problems.

You also have the choice of undertaking a second major in management or marketing, and applying your psychological insights to these strategic business domains.

This course consists of six core business units, a 10-unit psychology major, a further seven units in either management or marketing to complete an eight-unit major, and one business and economic elective.

  • Career opportunities

    There are few fields of study that open up as many career opportunities as business, and a psychology qualification will make potential employers even more interested. Our graduates work all over the world. They work in banking, counselling, communications, insurance and human resources. They work for the government, medical clinics and major corporations. The range of career options depends on the subjects chosen but, given we offer a double major with the option of a third, graduates will be able to explore many career paths.

    Examples of roles that graduates can pursue include self-employed counsellor, workplace psychologist for a government department, human resources officer for a major corporation, entrepreneur running your own business, or business analyst in a bank or consulting firm.

    We help students connect with employers, find jobs and explore career options.
