Psychology is the study of who we are and how we think, feel, act and change. This knowledge helps us improve wellbeing and psychological health. Understanding people's motivations and actions can provide valuable insight into the world of business: how we work, organise ourselves and assign value to things, and what constitutes responsible and ethical decision-making.Business people are a flexible and diverse group of professionals who think strategically and critically to solve complex problems. The strategic thinking and data analysis skills you will gain from studying business are significantly valuable when applied to the planning, running or reviewing the scientific studies and reviews that underpin modern psychology.
