These include theories relating to individual differences in abilities and attitudes, attribution, motivation, group dynamics, power and politics, leadership, conflict resolution, organizational culture, and organizational structure and design.

Management and Strategy

Strategic management refers to long-term managerial decisions and actions that shape the organization's pursuit of competitive advantage. This course introduces the concepts and processes underlying environmental scanning, and strategy formulation, implementation and control. Students then apply this knowledge in case analysis. The course also addresses the roles of leadership and coordination in successful strategizing.

Organizational leadership is the process of influencing other people to achieve organizational goals. This leadership course reviews and builds upon the basic knowledge of leadership provided in an introduction to organizational behavior course by expanding the scope and depth of the student's knowledge of leadership theories, by providing practice in basic leadership skills, and by developing the student's self-knowledge of his or her preferred leadership styles.
