Doctoral research in Organizational Behavior prepares graduates to implement organizational theory and research in order to achieve organizational effectiveness and improve individual work life.
The Organizational Behavior PhD is ideal for those committed to creating socially responsible organizations and meeting the challenges of an increasingly diverse workforce, global economy, and global community. Curriculum emphasizes basic, translational, and applied theory and research and their reciprocal relationship.
