Behavior Course and Workshop (BSCI)

Your First Trimester

An important component to the start of your degree program at the Graziadio School is the "Behavior in Organizations" course.  In this course, you will learn how to view management issues through a behavioral science lens through integration of conceptual and experiential approaches to self-awareness, perception, communication, motivation, productivity, group behavior processes, leadership, organizational change, diversity, ethical issues, career planning, and the management of personal and organizational stress. The honing of written and verbal communication skills is also emphasized throughout the course.  

Personal and Leadership Development Workshop

In conjunction with the "Behavior in Organizations" course, the Personal and Leadership Development Workshop (also known as the "Behavior Workshop") serves as an orientation to the experiential and team-based models of learning used at the Graziadio School.  The Behavior Workshop requires a weekend-long commitment spent at a hotel (Friday evening through noon on Sunday).  In order to earn credit for the "Organizational Behavior" course, students must complete the Behavior Workshop.    

For students in the BSM program, the Behavior Workshop is a component of the Organizational Behavior course (BSCI 468). At the Master's level programs, the Behavior Workshop is a separate course (BSCI 650), which is taken in conjunction with the Behavior in Organizations course (BSCI 651). 

Hotel information will be available in your Behavior in Organizations course (BSCI 468 or BSCI 650) within Sakai two weeks prior to the workshop.
