Organizational Behavior: Attitude, Behavior, Impact
Spring 2018 quarter
People in organizations are its ultimate competitive advantage. It is, however, a challenge to predict human behavior in groups and within organizations. Organizational behavior (OB) studies individuals, groups, and structures and their interactions in organizations. OB is an interdisciplinary field that includes sociology, psychology, anthropology, ethics, information technology, economics, communication, and management. Learning OB allows leaders and managers understand, explain, influence and predict human behavior. This course is designed to expose students to critical theories and conceptual models of OB for analyzing, understanding, and managing human behavior within organizations. Through readings, seminars, small group activities, research, reflection journals, and a final project, students in this course will learn the foundations and underlying theoretical frameworks that impact individual and group attitudes and behaviors and increase their critical thinking skills to identify, analyze, and predict individual and group behavior within organizations.
