Leadership in a digitally driven world demands new interpersonal and organizational skills. The pace and complexity of our digital world has changed the landscape for leaders as industry boundaries are blurring, teams are expanding across the globe, hierarchies are flattening, and worker-firm relations transcend traditional definitions of “employee.” Understanding why and how people come together to work toward common goals in this changing world is more important than ever before.
The Organization and Management area offers courses that draw on cutting-edge theory and research on both organizational behavior and organization theory. Organizational behavior addresses topics such as leadership, cross-cultural and inclusive management, managing work groups, decision making, motivation, creativity, trust, power and influence, negotiations, and organizational commitment. Organization theory offers insights on topics including innovation, organizational design and adaptation, workplace inequality, career processes, professionalization, work-family policies, and social networks.
The Organization and Management area also has one of the country's most prominent doctoral programs for people interested in a career as a professor in a business school. All doctoral students work closely with multiple faculty mentors to develop their own original program of academic research in organizational behavior or organization theory.
