The Organizational Behavior Professional

No matter what industry you look at, individuals and their work product are part of a broad network of individuals arranged in a way that is meant to maximize productivity and decrease redundancy. In order to help move an organization forward, an individual’s communication and behavior is an important element in the success or failure or any organization. To address these issues, Organizational Behavior Specialists are fast-becoming a significant player in organizations across the country. Today’s Organizational Professionals are increasingly involved in company initiatives and strategic planning. With this evolving role, companies are now able to offer unprecedented opportunities for those entering the field. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of HR professions in the US including Organizational Behavior specialists will rise faster than the national average over the next 10 years, making this a great focus for students looking to enter the business world.

The Organizational Behavior Professional Course

This course addresses how a company functions on a daily basis with the makeup of talent, roles and responsibilities, needs and various divisions that can help to effectively break up a large organization into something that can work effectively and efficiently. Students will have the opportunity to explore the behavior of the organization as a whole, the groups and individuals within it and those elements that contribute to a positive (or negative) work environment.

Analyzing the impact of corporate politics, balanced and unbalanced power structures as well as individual communication styles and motivations can help individuals to navigate their way through complex organizations, help to improve organizations or even design their own successful organization based on these best practices. This course examines organizational theory and application to provide a comprehensive review of individual, group, and organizational performance in relation to organizational structures in contemporary business settings.

I had someone there every step of the way. They walked me through what could have been a very stressful process. It put me on a path that started an epic journey.

-Kasey, Fort Riley

Everything was easy and my advisor with The Major Group walked me through it all. This was my third time going to college and by far the least stressful enrollment process.

-Felicia, Ft. Campbell

I loved the whole process. Everyone was very helpful and made sure that the program I wanted to join was something I wanted to do. It also helped me put my goals in place.

-Crystal, Fort Riley

There was a lot of help along the way, which was great. It was smooth and everything went well.

-Elizabeth, Fort Gordon

It was easy, simple, and quick. There was someone there every step of the way to help you fill out all the required documents. I would recommend to all military spouses who want to go to school, especially if you’re a stay-at-home spouse.

-Aeisha, Hunter Army Air Field

Everything was very easy to do and got done rather quickly from start to finish.

-Anne, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii

The enrollment process was quick and easy. Lots of help when needed.
