Organizational Behavior

Organizational Behavior

Organizational Behavior is an interdisciplinary field of study dedicated to understanding how differences in attributes and behavior at various levels (e.g., individual, dyad, group, etc.) influence outcomes of importance to organizations, their members and other stakeholders.

In the undergraduate program, students are introduced to core concepts, principles and theories of Organizational Behavior and taught how to apply these to situations they will face as employees and leaders.

The MBA curriculum includes courses in leadership that provide a foundation for students to develop as effective leaders through different levels of advancement and responsibility and across the lifespan and prepares students to assume leadership roles in organizational settings. At the PhD level, students may pursue a specialization in Organizational Behavior, in which they learn how to conduct significant research on behavioral and strategic issues facing contemporary organizations.
