Program Description

Many aspects of psychology in the work environment come together under the umbrella of Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology. Motivating individual productivity, creating cohesive teams, developing leaders, aligning culture with strategy, and leveraging diversity are all important aspects of I/O. Program graduates lead strategic change efforts to create win-win solutions for employees and employers by bringing a consultative approach to real-world business problems anchored in quantitative research methodology. For those organizations motivated to put psychology to work, New York University’s prestigious Department of Psychology offers an integrated curriculum, team-based projects, internships, and collegial network development, all designed to maximize human capital management for the enterprise.
