Broadly speaking, the field of organizational behavior (OB) focuses on the challenges of how organisations manage people. It investigates the impact that individuals, groups and structures have on behavior within organizations, for the purposes of applying such knowledge toward improving an organization’s effectiveness. At the EBS, we aim at strong research output, high standard of teaching quality and active engagement with practitioners in order to make both an academic and practice-orientated contribution in the field of OB.
