Organization and Human Resources

    “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.”

   “The doctoral program in organizational behavior is a complete academic experience.
     It is characterized by high standards for research, education, and ethics that are
     supported by an encouraging and available faculty. The collegiality and enthusiasm of
     faculty and students alike provide a great environment in which to develop both
     academically and personally.”
