Classics of Organization Theory, 7,5 ECTS

723G55/723G56 (former 722G99)

As organisations in their different forms play a central role in modern society, organisational theory and related areas are studied for many purposes and from many different perspectives. This course will focus on modern classical organisational theory. Concepts and paradigms of classical organisational theory will be studied as well as HRM, culture, strategy, power, institutions, gender and structural organisational theory.

One central aspect of organisations is that they consist of individuals, or actors, who together create not only organisations, but primarily different perceptions of them. Furthermore, society in our part of the world consists of different types of organisations, in which we live major parts of our lives as family members, employees, students, etc. The qualities and intentions of the actor, as well as the structures which exist in society at large affect what happens in a certain organisation.


Welcome to this year's course!

We are looking forward to meet you on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at 9:15 in lecture hall P26. Attendance on August 22 is mandatory to ensure a place in your seminar team.
