Work, Organizational and Business Psychology
The University of Wuppertal, located in North Rhine Westphalia in Germany, was founded in 1972 based on multiple educational institutes with a long tradition each.
The Chair Work, Organizational and Business Psychology as part of the faculty Economic Science and focuses on human behavior and experience in economic and organizational contexts. This field of Applied Psychology transfers findings from basic psychological research to phenomena in the world of work and business, develops its own models and theories to explain such phenomena, and shapes the transfer to other disciplines such as human resource management, marketing, occupational science and medicine. Within this scope of research, the chair deals with the subject areas of team control and development, prevention of stress and strain, as well as processes of motivation and self-control. In particular, these areas include the dynamics of regulatory performance processes within organizational units, intraindividual processes of stress management as well as individual mechanisms of autonomous self-regulation and voluntary self-control. Different research methods from experimental and field research are applied to answer these research questions.
