The Business Psychology programme from Heriot-Watt University Dubai is aimed at people already in, or aspiring towards, a career in management or human resourcerelated fields within any industry. 


It also provides training for those wishing to pursue specialist consultancy work in business psychology. This Business Psychology programme from Heriot-Watt University Dubai provides a detailed understanding of various aspects of psychology relevant to the workplace. Students may find some subject areas familiar from previous studies in business management. In all areas, however, the business psychology approach is to utilise primary research data and psychological principles to analyse situations and develop evidence-based policies.


Business psychologists may be employed in-house or as consultants to advise on issues relating to workforce performance and employee behaviour. In addition, a deeper understanding of people’s behaviour in the workplace is an important skill for managers in any industry. This degree therefore directly enhances the potential of graduates pursuing careers in management, training and human capital roles as well as in the fast-growing field of business psychology itself. The knowledge can equally be applied to any role in which employee or client relations are important for success.
