Management & Organizations & Sociology

Management & Organizations & Sociology

Students in this joint program offered by our Management & Organizations Department and Northwestern University's Sociology Department are interested in topics that bridge management strategy and economic sociology, such as social movements, the production of culture, entrepreneurship, social networks, gender and race inequality in organizations, and globalization.  

Our philosophy is that intellectual and research interests come first, and that research methods should be tailored to fit research questions. Within this research framework, our program is designed to bring together those students who want a disciplinary base in sociology while focusing their research on organizations and their environments. Our students become actively involved in research during their first year of study. The Management & Organizations & Sociology program develops students' theoretical knowledge and methodological skills for careers as successful and productive researchers within a business school or sociology department.

Active Research Areas (MORS Faculty): big data, corporate governance, computational social science, decision making, dispute resolution, diversity, group behavior, motivation, organizational change, organizational design, negotiations, social networks, strategic adaptation and change, social responsibility.

Active Research Areas (Sociology Faculty): culture; law, economy, and organizations; social inequality; and comparative-historical sociology.
