Goals
This course on Organisational Behaviour is meant to provide students with solid, evidence-based, and actionable knowledge on organisational behaviour. Organisational Behaviour, in a nutshell, investigates why people in organisations behave the way they do. After the completion of the course, students should be familiar with Organisational Behaviour theories; be able to read, understand, and critically evaluate Organisational Behaviour research findings including conceptual and empirical work; and be able to apply Organisational Behaviour concepts when diagnosing and solving business problems.
Description
Organisational Behaviour focuses on what people do in an organisation and how their behaviour affects organisational performance. An organisation may be designed to fit its institutional environment, but organisational performance may still suffer because of low employee morale, high stress levels, and conflicts at the workplace. Issues discussed in the course cover a wide range of important topics from motivation, emotions, personality, and job satisfaction to work teams, power, conflict, and communication.
Literature
To be announced.
Prerequisites
