Semester: B
Level: 4
Module code: BUS127
Module organiser: Dr Mustafa Ozturk

Module overview

Organizational Behaviour (OB) is a very broad subject concerned with how organizations and the work contained within them are structured, and how they remain consistent and change over time. Organisational behaviour is complex, and constituted by multiple stakeholders, systems, and processes. In this module, we aim to reach a comprehensive understanding of organisational behaviour by looking at organisational phenomena from various key perspectives, and cover issues that pertain to the individual employees, such as motivation, personality, leadership, etc.; groups of workers, such as the issue of teamwork, and the organisation itself, such as organisational learning, culture, change, etc. Understanding the interplay of the aforementioned issue areas will give us a fuller picture of how organisations, and its various constituent parts, behave.
