IDC - MA in Organizational Behavior & Development

Program Description

The MA program in Organizational Behavior and Development (OBD), is a joint academic program of the Arison School of Business and the School of Psychology at IDC Herzliya. It is unique in its synthesis of the disciplines of social psychology, organizational psychology, business administration and management. The program's organizers believe in the importance of adopting multiple perspectives in studying and understanding organizational issues, ranging from the individual to the group and organizational perspectives.
The curriculum is based on the "scientific-practitioner" model, by which students are exposed to “cutting edge” theory and research and receive the opportunity to immediately apply this scientific knowledge into fieldwork within Israeli and international organizations.
The program includes two tracks: Track A (with thesis) and Track B (without thesis).

*Please note that receiving a Masa scholarship does not imply automatic acceptance to IDC.  The IDC application is a separate process and acceptance is dependent on meeting academic criteria.
