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.
