Center for Developing Effective Businesses & Organizations
The Center for Developing Effective Businesses and Organizations (DEBO) is an interdisciplinary program across several colleges: the College of Business Administration’s organization development and supply chain management (both in the management department), the Institute for Service Excellence (marketing), and the Dallas-Hamilton Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, as well as the College of Arts and Sciences’ industrial-organizational psychology program and the College of Education’s School for Leadership Studies.
In 2009, the BGSU Board of Trustees approved this collaborative Center as one of its Centers of Excellence. It promotes interdisciplinary research, provides increased opportunities for BGSU to engage external organizations to improve the economy, and gives faculty and students an exciting opportunity to conduct research.
