Aims
The aim of the Organization Behavior course is to provide the student with knowledge and insight with respect to the unique characteristics and behaviors in the context of organizations: as individuals, as part of a group or team, and as a member of an organization. In addition, students write two research proposals, that provide the students with skills necessary to integrate research methodology and the field of organizational behavior at two different levels of analysis: individual and group level. 
Specifics
Organization Behavior will use knowledge and insights gained during courses such as Psychology for MAW, Sociology for MAW, Introduction to Human Resource Studies, and Introduction to Organisation Studies. During Organization Behavior, themes that have been addressed in the aforementioned courses will be studied in depth, including group dynamics, the employment relationship, and leadership. Fort he research proposal the students will use knowledge and insights obtained during MTO-A and MTO-B. 
Organization Behavior provides students with substantive knowledge that will be useful for second- and third-year courses in the Bachelor Personeelswetenschappen, Organisatiewetenschappen, and GMSI, as well as courses in the Master Human Resource Studies, the Master Organization Studies, and the Master GMSI.
Content
The central themes are those factors that influence individual, group, and organization behavior in the context of the environment of the organization. Important topics include personality and attitudes, motivation, team behavior, leadership and management, organizational structure and culture, and organizational change.

  • Individual behavior and motivation in organizations;
  • Team and group processes and leadership;
