Description: 

This Course provides an overview of topics and concepts in the field of Organizational Behaviour (OB). Emphasis is on developing a theoretical grasp of issues and problems and an understanding of practical implications of various theories of human behaviour at work. This course introduces students to many of the basic principles of human behaviour that effective managers use when managing individuals and groups in organizations. Except for teaching/research positions and organizational development positions/consultancy, one does not normally get a job in OB, rather because OB is horizontal discipline, OB concepts and lessons are applicable to virtually every job category, business function, and professional speciality. This course is designed to acquaint students with the theories of behaviour of people in social organizations. Specific topics include leadership, motivation, groups and Organizational culture.
