Master’s programme course "Positive Psychology for Modern Business Management"

In modern business, positive psychology is substantially gaining in importance. Positive psychology is an exciting and inspiring new branch of psychology. It builds on the positive in every individual – on their strengths and resources. The objective of positive psychology is to improve the subjective welfare (happiness) and functioning of individuals, organisations and the community and to enable them to flourish.

The course provides students with the opportunity to learn about the trends in positive psychology, to learn about and use mindfulness, to apply positive psychology to their work environment, to recognise their character strengths and to test the learned aspects during teamwork.

Enrolment is open to graduates of  bachelor  programmes (Holders of First Class or Upper Second Class honours degrees where applicable) in relevant study programmes (Economic and Business Sciences, Organisation and Administrative Sciences, Sociology, Law, Political Sciences).
