IF you have a pas­sion for both busi­ness and psy­chol­ogy, the Univer­sity of Green­wich ( 3+ 0) BA ( Hons) Busi­ness Psy­chol­ogy of­fered at SEGi Col­lege Kuala Lumpur might be suit­able for you.

This pro­gramme is for you if you are in­ter­ested in psy­chol­ogy and want to ex­plore its use­ful­ness in a gen­eral busi­ness con­text.

While the com­ple­tion of the pro­gramme does not give you the qual­i­fi­ca­tions to be an oc­cu­pa­tional psy­chol­o­gist, it will take your knowl­edge of psy­chol­ogy to a higher level and give you the abil­ity to ap­ply psy­cho­log­i­cal prin­ci­ples to busi­ness prob­lems.

This skill is highly val­ued within the in­creas­ingly com­plex hu­man en­vi­ron­ment of mod­ern busi­ness.

Apart from that, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and crit­i­cal think­ing skills are de­vel­oped through­out the three years of the BA ( Hons) Busi­ness Psy­chol­ogy pro­gramme. Th­ese skills are es­sen­tial for per­sonal and pro­fes­sional suc­cess.

Spe­cially de­signed pro­grammes are also avail­able to help you de­velop your em­ploy­a­bil­ity and job- seek­ing skills at the start of your ca­reer.

Dur­ing the fi­nal stage of the pro­gramme, you will be sup­ported by tu­tors in car­ry­ing out re­search and writ­ing an ex­tended dis­ser­ta­tion.

This will en­able you to de­velop spe­cial­ist ex­per­tise in an area of busi­ness psy­chol­ogy that you are par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in.

Mod­ules in the pro­gramme pro­vide knowl­edge, skills and an un­der­stand­ing of busi­ness, man­age­ment, the psy­chol­ogy of in­di­vid­u­als and group be­hav­iour at work.

Thus, grad­u­ates of the BA ( Hons) Busi­ness Psy­chol­ogy are equipped to man­age peo­ple well, with in- depth un­der­stand­ing of the dy­nam­ics of hu­man in­ter­ac­tion in the work­place.

Armed with all this know- how, you will have the abil­ity to deal ef­fec­tively with peo­ple- re­lated is­sues within or­gan­i­sa­tions and find prac­ti­cal so­lu­tions.

In­no­va­tive teach­ing method­olo­gies are used in this pro­gramme. Classes are sup­ported by on­line re­sources within a vir­tual learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment and this is sup­ple­mented by busi­ness sim­u­la­tion ex­er­cises and prac­ti­cal games.

Stu­dents also have ac­cess to in­dus­try ex­perts through guest pre­sen­ta­tions and lec­tur­ers as well as the op­por­tu­nity to visit com­pa­nies.
