I graduated from a university with my bachelor's in Business Administration. However, recently I became very interested in pursuing Business Psychology for my Graduate degree. However, I am worried that because I did not study psychology in my undergrad program, I will be unequipped for the things I will encounter in a Business Psychology Grad program. How can I prepare to pursue such a degree? And what are the most important factors I should look for when choosing which school to attend?
Have an Answer?
Considering most psych grads are unequipped for most graduate programs, I wouldn't fret too much (I can say this because I was a psych major). But really, a lot of grad programs in the Masters level take on students from diverse backgrounds. In my MSW (Masters in Social Work) cohort, we had an English major, marketing major and even a mechanical engineer.
The leap from a business admin program to an Industrial/Organizational Psych program (that's the real name for "business psychology," right?) isn't much of a stretch.
Just get your GRE scores up to snuff, write a great admissions essay and beg your favorite professors to write you good letters and you'll be fine.
