**More about this course**

The London Met's MBA (Business Psychology) will teach you the fundamentals of administering a business and provide an introduction to the basics of business psychology. This will grow your potential in fields related to human resources, talent management and other leadership positions.

The core focus will be on the skills and knowledge you need to run an organisation, be it public, private or non'for'profit, including marketing, communications, accounting, leadership and more.

We supplement this with specialised modules in psychology that will help you manage culture and change within organisations, as well as learn the specific methods used to psychologically assess members of staff in the workplace.

On the research modules, you'll be able to further investigate any management processes and other business topics that you want to explore in more depth.

Our teaching staff and visiting academics, who you’ll meet both informally and formally through lectures and social events, are experts in areas including organisational psychology, leadership and management to promote business effectiveness.

Throughout the MBA, you’ll collaborate with students from a variety of professions and disciplines, including specialist postgraduate psychology students. Your specialised training will be supplemented by regular informal learning activities including the weekly student'led Business Breakfast; a monthly dinner; networking events; meetings with business leaders; entrepreneurs and consultants and lively charity fundraising events in the City.

We’ll provide regular coaching sessions to help improve your career potential, while you can also make use of our Careers and Employability Unit to help you find new roles in preparation for life after the MBA.

**What our students say**

This MBA is a re'launch of our original MBA course, of which graduate and banker Gaurav Gajjar had this to say:

"I continue to benefit from [the student diversity and the real'life opportunities] in the multicultural and diverse markets I deal with on a daily basis. In addition it helped me hone my management and leadership skills helping me attain my goals.”
