3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to the Coles MBA or MAcc program.
This course explores some of the many ways in which human behavior affects how one manages and leads and ultimately how it affects individual, group, and organizational performance. The course will examine behavioral issues from both the macro and micro level with three principal areas of focus: Individual and organizational effectiveness. Organizational behavior what people think, feel, and do in organizations. Leading organizational change. A conceptual understanding and knowledge of the applied consequences of these issues are requisite to understanding business matters as diverse as employee discipline policies, career development, marketing and promotion strategies, and the economics of the firm. The principal areas will be examined with a thorough grounding in theory yet with a focus on how the associated knowledge and skills may be applied to develop better managers, leaders, and global citizens.
