The Institute of Business Psychology (Nigeria) was established in 2013, with the sole purpose championing business psychology.  The IBP sets out to achieve this by:

Being inclusive: the home and the voice of those with an interest in Business Psychology

Being accessible: making the application of psychology in business user-friendly

Promoting Business Psychology: raising awareness of the benefits of BP for people and organizations.

Demonstrating best practice: sharing examples of business psychology’s effective application in the workplace

Building capability: enabling the development of knowledge and skills in business psychology

Being sustainable: we operate as a financially sound association


The IBP will achieve this sole purpose of championing business psychology through:

  • Increasing IBP membership to increase and enhance the community contributing to and benefitting from the Institute
  • Providing benefits to members that support the continuous learning and application of psychology best-practice within organisations
  • Engaging with the wider business psychology community in support of the Institute’s evolution
  • Providing accreditation to courses and institutions supporting the development of students in business psychology
  • Recognising and celebrating contributions to best practice in Business Psychology


The Institute of Business Psychology is a Professional Body Recognised by law.

However, the IBP recognises that not all people who successfully apply psychological principles to the world of work are eligible for membership within the Nigeria Psychological Association.  For this reason, the IBP actively encourages members who have substantial business experience but who also have a good working knowledge of psychology and how it can be applied for the benefit of individuals and organisations, and use this knowledge in the course of their work.
