Goals
The course has three overarching learning objectives:
1. To acquire theoretical understanding and knowledge of topics within management of organizations.
2. To increase your ability to apply concepts of management and organization.
3. To develop your reflective awareness with respect to process factors as well as your own assumptions and beliefs regarding management.

First, we aim to broaden your theoretical understanding and knowledge of topics related to management of organizations. This also implies that you will learn how to build a basic research model within any of the management of organizations topics. Second, besides theoretical insights, this course offers you the possibility to apply your newly gained knowledge by working on a team assignment in which you analyze a business example. For this, you will need to interview a manager. Third, you will have opportunities to reflect and practice competences that are needed when managing. You will receive constructive feedback concerning your presentation and facilitation skills. In addition, you will be reflecting your global citizenship and interpersonal competences.
Description
This course aims to stimulate your critical thinking and personal development rather than providing clear-cut management recipes. 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 thinking, organizational design, teams, learning, leadership, and corporate social responsibility.
Literature
The course builds upon articles from academic journals and the business press and a textbook.
