Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course students approach organization theory from different perspectives by reading famous texts from organization scholars. By studying different theories, such as micro-economic theories of the organization, behaviouristic theories, ecological theories, or cognitive-symbolic theories as well as post-modern and feministic theories, students receive alternative explanations to basic questions of organization theory: What are organisations?, Why do they emerge?, How do they look like? etc. Students prepare texts and short discussion papers for in-class discussions. The course is taught in German but texts used for this course are mainly in English.
