Behavioral Science: Leadership & Organizational Behavior

The purpose of this course, required for students in the full-time MBA program at the Carey Business School, is to introduce students to fundamental topics related to managing, leading, and working in modern organizations. The course exposes students to a broad array of frameworks for understanding individual, team, and organizational behavior, with particular emphasis on the design of work, interpersonal dynamics, organizational innovation and change, global work environments, and crafting meaningful careers. This breadth of topics, ranging across organizational levels and career stages, distinguishes the course and is meant to complement students’ later coursework focused on individual decision-making, solving problems in teams, and avoiding pitfalls of early career managers.

More information on the course and a sample syllabus are available for Carey Business School students on SIS.
