The workplace is rapidly evolving. The lines between personal and professional persona is increasingly blurred— the idea of a healthy work-life balance is becoming more mainstream. And the workplace is beginning to better reflect the diversity of our society. We’ve learned that the individual is just as important as the whole, and their success is inextricably tied to the success of the company or organization.

Teachers, Mentors, and Speakers

Our approach to the educational experience is straightforward: smaller classes mean better relationships between professors and students and better relationships between students and their cohorts. Better relationships lead to improved learning experiences. Because you do more than just listen to lectures— you get personal mentoring. Mentoring from leaders who have spent many years practicing in the psychology field you are about to enter. Practicing what they preach, and preparing you to join them.

And they know a lot of other industry leaders. Like Richard Axelrod, Jerry Perlmutter, Judith Katz, Frederick Miller, and Barbara Mink. Leaders who don’t just give speeches, but also come to your class and give you personal, tailored insight. Offering you a view into some great minds and best practices in the field.

So that when you enroll in the Master of Arts in Organizational Behavior program at Alliant International University, you know you’re getting much more than a degree.


The MA in Organizational Behavior Program was first put to the test in the early 2000s when it received accreditation from the International Society for Organization Development. We then took it a step further. We commissioned industry leaders to form the Blue Ribbon Committee which reviewed and made recommendations to further improve the program. The end result was a holistic, academically rigorous, and training-intensive program which arms our students with the tools they need for success in the field.


The California School of Professional Psychology is a proud member of the nation’s top network of industry leaders, the Organizational Development Education Association, a sub-group of the National Organization Development Network.
