Purposes of the Center
Center for Research on Organizational and Managerial Excellence is within the Department of Management in the College of Business Administration. The center's primary purpose is to promote faculty and graduate student basic and applied research addressing the important and complex problems (challenges) faced by managers; to promote greater interaction between the University and industry in seeking solutions to these managerial problems; to gain support from industry, government, and or private foundations for critical managerial research. The intent of the center is to build stronger ties with external constituents, support faculty research and graduate programs, provide a community service and add to the positive and external image of the College of Business Administration and the University. Research is conducted in all areas of management to include corporate strategy, human resource management, international management, labor relations, organizational behavior, organizational theory, and production operations management. Examples of current research through the center are an establishment of methods for improving employee motivation; means of effectively managing a diversified corporation; means of measuring corporate performance for strategy development and implementation; development of effective leadership approaches; employee participation in the management of a firm; and managerial prevention of stress.
