Hi,

The field of Management stemmed partly from Psychology, therefore there is a lot of scope for psychologists in this field. In the corporate setting, psychologists can be a part of recruitment, HR, employee training and development, organisational development, strategic planning using employee resources and so forth.

For this, while an MBA degree may not be essential it is extremely desirable. Psychologists have been working in the HR field successfully without an MBA but they have a very rich experience to back them. Now-a-days, with the fierce competition and abundance of highly qualified professionals out there, having an MBA would prove very beneficial to you. With an MBA and your psychology degree and experience, you will definitely be pitted higher than an individual with just an MBA in HR.

Therefore, if you are a psychologist looking to foray into the management sector, I would recommend that you do atleast a PG Diploma in Management or a MBA to accentuate you qualifications.

Good luck!
