MGMT 8710 - Organizational Behavior and Effective Human Resource Management♦


(4 cr.) Human resources are the heart of an organization; therefore, their behavior, expectations, and needs should be among the factors at the forefront of managers’ interests. Students in this course explore advanced research topics in organizational behavior, including the implications for effective human resource management with a focus on individual, group, and organizational behavior. They engage in group activities, discussions, and writing assignments on individual differences in employee motivation and job satisfaction; group development; team building; organizational leadership; and organizational design, change, culture, and development. Through extensive reading and literature review, students identify potential research topics for their dissertation and explore the global and ethical dimensions pertaining to course subject matter. (Prerequisite(s): RSCH 8101M [may be taken concurrently].)
