For this reason, companies need experts who are proficient in both disciplines: Business + Psychology. This study programme at Cologne Business School enables you to fully understand how the behaviour of people impacts the success of companies – and how you can use management skills to steer company decisions in the right direction. Graduates find employment, for example, in marketing, corporate consultancies or in human resources departments.
