MGMT 4109V - Management and Organizational Behavior


(3 sem. cr.) The focus of this course is on human behavior in the context of the organization in a domestic and/or a transnational setting. Students completing this course gain an understanding of the concepts of human and organizational functioning with emphasis on application of these concepts to managerial problems and solutions in both domestic and transnational settings. In the course, students examine individual perception, attribution, and learning; differences in personality; career development; motivating and rewarding employees; and making effective decisions. The course also provides an overview of ethics and the ethical issues faced by domestic and transnational organizations and managers, social responsibility, communications, motivation, and leadership. By focusing on the elements of national culture, students examine the impact culture has on leadership and management as well as the day-to-day operational issues endemic to transnational and global businesses. Finally, students investigate the management of diversity in the workplace, especially in a transnational and global setting. Learning is accomplished through a diagnostic approach employing text readings, individual and case analyses, quizzes and exercises, and a final individual organizational plan. The course is ideally suited to current potential managers either presently operating in an international environment or contemplating doing so.
