Omschrijving This course aims to give an overview of contemporary issues in the field of Organizational Behavior. The course has a Capita Selecta-approach, which implies that students are offered deeper insights in specific topics that are central in the research of OB/HRM scientists at the University of Groningen. Students acquire advanced knowledge and insights on themes like leadership, diversity, team work, motivation, and power and status. For each of these topics, this course provides students with an overview of the most important theories and approaches, and familiarizes students with the underlying research findings. Based on theoretical propositions, students will critically review and discuss the research on these topics. Students are trained in developing future directions for research within the domain of Organizational Behavior. Furthermore, students will write a well-structured and argued review paper on one of the research topics of the faculty-members of the HRM/OB research program.
