During the course you will:
1. Learn about (new) approaches to management thinking and practice in a challenging and engaging way.

The course Management of Organisations aims to stimulate your critical thinking and personal development rather than providing clear-cut management recipes. You will be confronted with paradoxes that will aid your development. We will discuss the dilemmas that managers face in the changing management environment. Examples of topics that will be discussed are: management myths and realities, paradox, design, teams, learning, leadership, and corporate social responsibility.
The course builds upon articles from academic journals and the business press and a textbook.
