Assessment is 100% coursework


Students will understand the core theories of organisational behaviour in the context of operational realities, i.e. employees do not always think and act in ways that corporate strategy imagine or plan that they will.  Case studies and insightful scenarios will highlight the day-to-day employee experience and how they react to different situations. 

The module will add to the School’s core goal of educating reflective practitioners in that they will engage in interrogating core theories with a keen eye on the reality of practice in organisations and employees that have to meet competing demands.

  • To understand core theories in organisational behaviour
