PhD in Organizational Behavior

Organizational Behavior

UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Organizational Behavior faculty examine issues in leadership (including ethical leadership), team dynamics, decision-making, motivation, power and influence, negotiations, employee well-being, creativity, performance management and organizational change.

Our Organizational Behavior PhD Program prepares you to study how people act and interact within groups. Using research drawn from the disciplines of psychology, sociology, social psychology, economics, anthropology and political sciences, we use a scientific approach to better understand and manage a workforce.

Although a relatively young field, more and more organizations rely on these ideas and practices to remain competitive.

This rigorous PhD program is designed to prepare you to become a faculty member at a top research university.
