The PhD major in organization and human resources provides opportunities for concentrations in the field of organizational behavior. Studies in organizational behavior focus on the behavior of individuals and groups in the organizational context, the relations between individuals and organizations, the study of organizations themselves and the behavioral/social science foundations of these subjects.
“Training PhD students to be productive scholars is extremely important to us. We focus not only on building good researchers, but also in teaching the publication process. Our students understand the climate of research and the vagaries of publishing. Our students are our customers and knowledge is our business.”
