As one of the few institutions of this kind in Germany, the Business Psychology Laboratory is firmly integrated into the methodological training of our Bachelor and Master students. In the Business Psychology courses we deliberately place a strong focus on comprehensive method training. Comprehensive means that our students learn both how to collect data and how to evaluate and interpret them. Our students thus develop the necessary expertise to answer applied questions and problems on the basis of empirical studies.
With the help of the laboratory's extensive hardware and software equipment, our students are given the opportunity to work on questions from data collection to data analysis and interpretation. In this way, they learn how the information gained can be used in practice. At the same time, students gain experience in using state-of-the-art techniques and methods, such as our Virtual Reality glasses or Facereader (a software for the recognition of emotions).
In addition to the methodological training of our students, another important pillar of our work is the support of internal and external research projects or cooperative projects with corporate partners. We would like to help our students to further develop and optimize their research ideas and finally put them into practice. To this end, we provide resources such as hardware and software, but also know-how and consulting services.
The Business Psychology Laboratory thus contributes to the promotion of inter- and transdisciplinary research at our university. On the other hand, it is of great importance for us to expand and improve the knowledge of our society with the help of research.
