Management And Organizations

Research that defines tomorrow’s workplace

UCLA Anderson management and organizations faculty are nationally recognized for their research in leadership, negotiation, persuasion and interpersonal communication as they relate to the corporate world. Their experience spans the breadth of the industry and they comprise award-winning social psychologists, labor economists, organizational behaviorists and human resource managers. Their contributions to the field are well documented in peer-reviewed, prize-winning papers that have helped define modern corporate philosophies.

With frequent media coverage in major news outlets such as the New York Times, Forbes, CNN and the Harvard Business Review, our reach and influence is felt through the work of our best-selling authors, groundbreaking studies and Anderson’s Human Resources Round Table (HAART), where we engage academic and practitioner knowledge of cutting-edge human resources topics with the 50 corporate HR executives who are members.
