The objectives of this course are 1) to develop an understanding of the complexity and dynamics of organizational life using analysis and the discussion of key issues facing employees in today's organizations, and 2) to provide students with opportunities to apply theory and research to improve their understanding of management practice through the use of case discussions and analysis. Emphasis will be placed upon students' development of critical thinking skills and an appreciation of the frontiers of current knowledge in the selected areas.
