Business decisions have to be made based on facts with cold blood. But can anyone really rule out all uncertainties, presumptions, even workplace stress and truly focus? In this programme, you will learn about how people typically behave in organizations, the psychology of negotiation and decision-making. This will help you organize people in ways that motivate them to reflect on their assumptions, overcome their uncertainties, and deal with stress, thus contributing more effectively to a shared organizational purpose.
This is a specialisation of the Management programme.
This programme delivers an interdisciplinary understanding of generic business issues, providing you with a contextual understanding of the latest knowledge of psychology.
We give considerable importance to increasing students' employability skills.
