The fundamental objective of the Organizational Behavior Area is to train world-class researchers in this field. The term "organizational behavior" refers to a collection of theory and research that focuses on individual and group attitudes, cognitions and behaviours in organizations. The faculty in the Area represent a mix of researchers from a variety of backgrounds. Some take a more cognitive, others a more practice-oriented approach in their research.
