What is ODYN?
Organizational Dynamics (ODYN) combines the disciplines of industrial-organizational psychology and management/organizational behavior. Students learn how to lead and manage teams, helping an organization's employees work together more effectively and ensuring alignment between an organization's goals and the strategies people use to achieve them.
ODYN includes specializations in human resource management and project management. Since all organizations utilize people and projects, skills learned through this degree are applicable in a wide variety of industries including public, private, governmental, and not-for-profit organizations.
I’m looking at MBA programs, why might I be interested in ODYN?
As a business degree, an MBA focuses on numbers and regards employees as costs. ODYN concentrates more on people and regards human capital as an organization's most important asset. No job can be done without people, so organizations need to know how to utilize their employees' knowledge, skills, and abilities to the fullest. The ODYN program teaches students how to do this.
