Students in the Management of Organizations (MORS) PhD program are trained in one of two tracks: a macro track and a micro track.
- Macro students are trained to become academics active in areas including social networks, innovation, economic sociology, organizational culture, and entrepreneurship. Research by faculty and students in the macro track has a strong quantitative focus and uses computational social science to make inferences based on large-scale data.
- Micro students are trained to become academics active in areas including judgment and decision making, status and power, organizational culture, gender, ethics, diversity, negotiations, and nonverbal interaction. Research by faculty and students in the micro track is primarily empirical, often using field and laboratory studies and experiments to collect and analyze data.
