Organizational Behavior & Human Resources Management
Students majoring in Organizational Behavior and Human Resources Management take courses in both areas because these are interrelated fields, with research and teaching needs that generally span both disciplines.
- Organizational Behavior focuses on human behavior in social settings with an emphasis on explaining, predicting, and influencing behavior in organizations. Faculty in this area focus on employee motivation, task performance, organizational citizenship behavior, employee attitudes, leadership, and group processes.
- Human Resources Management emphasizes strategic human resource systems, the design and implementation of various personnel tests, compensation systems, training, and issues in performance appraisal systems.
