Area of Study :

The management of complex organizations requires an understanding of the nature of human behavior in corporate and other organizations, styles of motivations, company leadership, power and authority, strategies of organizational design and change, teamwork and collaboration, and the measurement of organizational effectiveness. Interacting with other people and in organizations is characterized by complex dynamics. This course is designed to help students study these very interesting complexities by both standing back and considering these dynamics and by directly experiencing some of them throughout the course activities. The combination of academic perspective and personal engagement creates a powerful learning experience.
