As part of the Association's commitment to championing Business Psychology, the ABP has responded to requests to establish a process for 'accrediting' University courses.
ABP accreditation is a sign of the credibility of the programme as presented and refers to the appropriateness of the content of a Business Psychology course. Specifically, the course is certified as demonstrating that its content covers:
- The theory of Business Psychology as applied to individuals, groups and organisations
- The practice of Business Psychology as applied to individuals, groups and organisations
Applicable to both Msc and MA courses, a Masters degree accredited by the Association of Business Psychologists gives students confidence that the course provides a suitable pathway to the discipline of Business Psychology.
In addition to those listed below, the ABP is currently underway with the review and accreditation of several other university courses. Please check back soon for further listings.
