Organizational Development

The organizational development major prepares today’s college graduates to respond effectively to rapid changes in any organization, large or small. This business-related major recognizes a variety of perspectives on organizational structures and the forces that drive and control change within corporations and organizations. Geneva College’s Reformed heritage and a focus on ethics and worldview guide content and critique within this major. The major helps students become self-aware, higher-order thinkers who can analyze complex human systems, lead others effectively and anticipate and facilitate rapid change.
