All students undertaking graduate studies in Business need to appreciate and understand the nature of organisational behaviour. They should also be able to articulate behavioural issues in business situations. This course provides a framework in which students are exposed to a range of theories and experiences within the field of organisational behaviour which will allow them to further develop insights, attitudes and skills to a level consistent with the expectations for senior management. The course aims to provide an understanding of the behaviour of people at work. It analyses behaviour at the individual, group and organisational levels. Managers must understand the complex interactions that influence the effectiveness of different management strategies and organisational structures under different environmental and technological conditions. As well as reviewing the current theories and research in the area, the course uses case studies to examine the implications for practising managers.
