Behavior and Leadership (OBL) major will prepare you to assume leadership roles
that are essential to meet the challenges and uncertainty confronting today’s
organizations. The OBL program is structured to equip you with the knowledge,
skills, abilities, attitudes, and tools you need to facilitate the performance
of the organizations where you serve.
The curriculum focuses on the theoretical frameworks and
practical applications for exploring and explaining human behavior in the
workplace, providing a broad perspective so you can go beyond your accepted
ways of interacting and working with others. Through classroom emphasis on
critical thinking and independent judgment, you will learn to be an active
investigator of organizational life while you develop the conceptual and problem-solving
skills that an organizational leader needs to plan, organize, and inspire a
group or an entire organization.
