The main objective of this course is to provide an in-depth knowledge of human behavior in organizations. Variability in behaviors—which oftentimes departs from “normative” models--emanate from many factors at various levels of analysis. For example, individual differences, groups, leadership, organizational factors and national culture will be discussed using various theoretical approaches. Students will also be exposed to articles stemming from the experimental research tradition to better grasp how behavioral scientists (industrial and social psychologists, economists, etc.), solve puzzles that concern human behavior.
