Bachelor graduates with a degree in business psychology have numerous opportunities to start a successful career due to the versatile learning content.

Internet sources such as www.wirtschaftspsychologie-studieren.de give a business psychology salary range of 29,000 euros and 42,000 euros per year. At WHU, we have not yet been able to collect our own figures, as the program does not start until 2022. We expect that the vast majority of our students will pursue a Master's degree either straightaway or later after completing their Bachelor's degree in business psychology, which increases their chances of earning a higher starting salary. We assume that management consulting will be a typical interest and career goal of our students in the Business Psychology Bachelor's program,  given the attractive salary structures that are typical for the industry. Generally speaking, the salary range for business psychology graduates is broad and depends on various factors, such as the size of the company and the industry in which you work. For more information about salary and career perspectives visit our Career Center.  

With a business psychology degree, you'll have access to a wide range of positions in a large variety of industries.  Whether you want to get into marketing consumer goods, help shape the future of work in human resources, track down the latest trends in market research, or support companies with strategic changes as a consultant - this degree can be the perfect starting point for all this and much more. The scientifically based, but at the same time very practical degree program, offers you a solid education with the basics in business administration as well as in psychology. Master's degree programs also offer you the opportunity to go into one of the two subjects in greater depth and thus pave the way for even more diverse jobs in business psychology.
