Organizational Management and Consulting Doctoral (PsyD) Program - Los Angeles

Mission Statement

To develop effective and ethical organizational managers and consultants by providing meaningful classroom, field and independent learning experiences, and the tools to become a lifelong learner.

About the Program

Phillips Graduate Institute's Organizational Management and Consulting (OMC) Program is designed to enhance the personal and professional skills of consultants, managers, and leaders. Organizations, large and small, for-profit, non-profit, and government are increasingly engaging talented people with behavioral science and business pragmatic education and training to address a wide range of human systems-related issues in the workplace. In this program, students participate in an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines academic instruction, hands-on application, and personal and professional development.

Students acquire the management and consulting expertise, leadership skills, and critical business perspectives needed to enhance their careers and make a significant impact at the individual, group, and
organizational level.

By synthesizing theories of organizational behavior and contemporary business practices, our dynamic Organizational Management Consulting doctoral program prepares students to assist organizations with strategy and leadership development, problem solving, team building, and change management.

The Organizational Management and Consulting Program is designed around four related competency areas:

  • Self-Assessment and Development (professional values and ethics, life-long learning, and individual and professional accountability).
  • Knowledge (organizational behavior, business pragmatics for corporate, nonprofit structure/processes/products, legal issues and organizational responsibility.
  • Mediating/Process Competencies (communication, critical thinking, systems thinking, and strategic thinking).
  • Operational Competencies (organizational assessment, intervention, program evaluation, and collaborative/team-oriented behavior).

Our graduates are knowledgeable in concepts and theories of diversity, strategic planning and organizational change, communications, action research, entrepreneurship, and leadership. They are able to assess, analyze, develop, and implement creative solutions, and to be agents of change for individual contributors, teams, and organizations.
