The whole world inclusive
We live in a world of internationalization and globalization in all spheres of life. Consequently, the ability to understand people from other cultures and successful communication are of constantly growing significance. In working life, too, knowledge of the psychological principles of intercultural communication and collaboration is increasingly important. Knowledge of these processes and so-called intercultural competencies are consistently imparted in the bachelor’s degree course "Intercultural Business Psychology". It is about the human being and his behavior as well as decision-making processes in economic contexts.
Students analyze the social interactions in the working world as well as contacts between companies and their customers by means of human science methods. Here, psychology, human science methodological competence and economics play a role and are complemented with intercultural communication and teamwork, presentation techniques and foreign languages.
Business psychologists work, for example, in human resource management where they are responsible for the selection and development of personnel. Additionally, the fields of marketing and market research as well as large management consulting firms or the freelance sector provide different entry-level career opportunities.
