Organizational Behaviour is the study of human behaviour in an organizational setting, with each other and the organization as a whole. It deals with describing human behaviour and finding out the causes of such behaviour and how it affects the functioning of the organization. This is done by closely looking at factors like communication, motivation, group dynamics, leadership, performance management and human resource management. The study curriculum is designed to evaluate the importance of organizational behaviour and management and looks at relevant theories, concepts and case studies to address important questions related to organizational behaviour.

The organizational Behaviour program covers topics like leadership, decision-making, job satisfaction and motivation. It is influenced by other disciplines like psychology, sociology, economics and communication science. Students pursuing a degree in Organizational Behaviour will be able to analyse the behaviour of individuals and groups in an organization through theories and concepts and will be able to apply these theories and concepts to real-world management situations. They will develop good communication, organizational, critical thinking and resource management skills. Graduates will also be able to solve group-based problems, influence and make group decisions, negotiate and improve well-being at work.
