Industrial/Organizational Psychology MA (Concentration in Organizational Behavior)

The Organizational Behavior Network:

Because our students work in a variety of professions including human resources, accounting, engineering, education, consulting, and in corporate, non-profit and educational settings, they bring a unique multi-cultural perspective to the program.

During the course of their studies, students concentrating in Organizational Behavior develop a wide network of professional contacts that serve as a powerful resource for advice, referrals and practical materials as they share their knowledge and expertise. Students often reach out to their colleagues for assistance and are seldom disappointed.

In addition, current students, alumni, faculty and gather together periodically to share experiences, celebrate graduation and introduce family and friends to the program. Some highlights of these informal luncheons:
