Faculty Spotlight: Travis Bradberry

Travis Bradberry, PhD is an award-winning author, president of a professional consultancy firm, and California School of Professional Psychology alumnus. After receiving his PhD in both clinical and industrial-organizational psychology, he went on to write the #1 bestseller Emotional Intelligence 2.0 and co-founded the world’s premier provider of emotional intelligence (EQ) TalentSmart. Bradberry set out on a quest to improve the way we build relationships in the workplace and enhance our professional capacity by understanding our emotional intelligence. After all, as he points out, “We experience 27 discernible emotions every hour,” and we can’t just ignore that. “We are emotional creatures before we are rational creatures. We have an emotional reaction to events before we have rational reactions to events…that’s just the way we’re wired,” says Bradberry. He knows that emotions drive behavior and focuses on how to build awareness of that in order to improve professional practice.

Frequently Asked Questions

Earning an Organizational Behavior Master’s degree most frequently leads to a career in Human Resources Management (HRM), and the Bureau for Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates that the HRM field will grow by 9% over the next 10 years, which is slightly above average when compared to the national career field. While growth is mostly in line with the national average, there is expected to be an increased amount of competition for these positions and applicants with certifications or a master’s degree—particularly those with a concentration in human resources management—will have the best job prospects moving forward.

Graduates armed with an Organizational Behavior Master’s degree often work with human resources managers, work in HRM, or similar fields in companies both large and small, and both public and private. Graduating students also have opportunity to branch out into other fields, such as: office management, education, professional training and development, and sales management, among others.
