Return to: PhD in Industrial and Organizational (I/O) Psychology
Organizations in today’s global economy work across national and cultural boundaries. This specialization enables students to develop the expertise to help these organizations navigate the challenges of a culturally diverse workforce.
In this program, students will deepen their scholarly and practical knowledge of workplace and organizational behavior, with a specific focus on how the science of industrial and organizational (I/O) psychology applies to employee assessment, selection, performance management, motivation, work attitudes, leadership, and organizational behavior and development. Students will learn how to use this knowledge to advise businesses, industries, labor agencies, academic institutions, health organizations, and other community groups on how to create synergistic work environments that promote employee effectiveness and productivity despite cultural differences.
