ORG 680 - Organizational Behavior (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
Organizational behavior is the field of study that investigates the impact of individuals, groups and structure on behavior within organizations for the purpose of applying this knowledge to improve an organization’s effectiveness. It draws from a number of different fields including psychology, sociology, and anthropology. The focus of the course is examination of the theoretical and empirical foundations of organizational behavior to provide a framework for understanding its applications in work settings. To accomplish this objective, students will look at people on three levels: as individuals; in interpersonal relationships; and in groups and collectives.
