About Organizational Behaviour (OB) Area

The Organizational Behaviour (OB) area is internationally recognized for its teaching and research. Faculty members in the area have diverse research interests which include individual and interpersonal effectiveness, job involvement, gender issues at the workplace, work attitude, organizational excellence, human resources development, managerial culture and values, organizational dynamics and design, organizational learning, management of change and strategic organizations.

If students have an interest to apply their knowledge in their basic discipline such as psychology or sociology to the organizational context, research in OB will allow them to do so. It is not necessary for candidates to have an MBA degree, or a degree in psychology or sociology, to do an FPM in the area. Rather, students from diverse disciplines are encouraged to apply for the doctoral programme in OB.
