Management professor Walt Nord studies organization theory and behavior and is currently researching the topic in a political/economic context. The author of numerous books, textbooks, and scholarly articles, his newest book will offer a new philosophical framework for organization studies, seeking to overcome current polarizing debates by developing an improved philosophical perspective for organization studies.

The same academy named Nord a Distinguished University Professor in 2002 (USF named him Distinguished University Professor in 2003); these honors recognize significant contributions to the science and practice of management.
Nord earned a BA in economics from Williams College, an MS in organizational behavior from Cornell University, and a PhD in social psychology from Washington University.
