Course taught in English
Insegnamento riservato agli studenti CEU
Go to class group/s: 31
This course introduces students to the elements of organizational behavior relevant for understanding and managing organizations. The field of organizational behavior has become increasingly fragmented across economic, sociological, psychological, and business-oriented perspectives. This course, by contrast, develops an ability to analyze the multifaceted nature of organizational behavior through an interdisciplinary approach. Specifically, through this course students learn about: human behavior - how to understand and motivate people; interpersonal processes - how to coordinate people, their activities, and their resources; the organization of work - how formal and informal organization structures affect work and organizational performance.
Exam for attending students:
- There will be an evaluated written in class case analysis at the end of each part of the course. The final grade is an average of these intermediate evaluations. If the grade obtained during the course is not positive, the student must enroll for and take the exam in an official session as non attending students.
Exams for non-attending students:
- Students can choose to take directly the exam in an official session, without the support of class activities and the evaluation of class assignments. The exams in the official session will be a mix of open questions and short case/ problems analyses.
