Overview

The Bachelor of Business with Psychology (Hons) is designed for students who are curious about human behaviour – the way we think and act. For the business student, this involves learning about employees and workplace behaviour and related aspects of customers and marketplace behaviour. The psychology dimensions of the programme provide deeper insights into not just how we behave but also, why we behave the way we do. The managerial and business aspects of the programme allow the student to understand this behaviour more fully, within the context of organisational life and business dealings. With this balanced approach, graduates of this programme are well positioned to play a role in and contribute to the employee wellness strategies of organisations, in line with the critical need to improve workplace wellbeing and productivity in meeting today’s challenges in balancing work and life.

 

Students can apply to be CIM (Student) Affliate at discounted membership fee.
