Administrative History

The Department of Organizational Behavior (1970-1989) was a department within the College of Business at Brigham Young University.

The Department of Organizational Behavior was created in 1970 under the direction of the College of Business. From 1974 to 1975 it was placed within the Graduate School. In 1976, the Department was placed within the Graduate School of Management. In 1988, the Department offered undergraduate courses and was thus associated with both the School of Management and the Graduate School of Management. In 1989 it was reorganized within the Marriott School of Management. Department chairmen included: William G. Dyer (1970-1975), Paul H. Thompson (1975-1979), J. Bonner Ritchie (1979-1983), Gene W. Dalton (1983-1987), and J. Bonner Ritchie (1987-1989).

The Department of Organizational Behavior had as a major objective the training of persons who will be working in organizations and whose concern is building systems that will better meet the needs of people and accomplish the organizational goals. This program led to careers in personnel management, management training, organization development, industrial relations, organization consulting, and research and teaching in the area of organizational behavior. The Department of Organizational Behavior offered students two stems of graduate studies to pursue. The first was the management development stem which was geared to the training of students in the Masters of Business Administration, Public Administration, and other graduate programs to fulfill portions at the management and administrative levels. The second was the professional stem which included preparation of students who plan to become professional consultants, trainers, or organization development specialists. Undergraduate courses were offered to students interested in preparing themselves for areas of leadership. Graduate courses led to a Master of Arts in Organizational Behavior.
