What is Business Psychology?

Business psychology is an interdisciplinary field that applies the findings of psychology to the world of business and organizations. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of human behavior in economic contexts. This includes topics such as employee motivation, team dynamics, leadership, marketing psychology and organizational development.

By applying psychological principles in business areas such as human resources, marketing and management, business psychology helps to develop more effective strategies, increase job satisfaction and promote the success of companies. Overall, business psychology represents a bridge between psychology and business, which serves to understand and improve human behaviour in organizational contexts.
