Organisational Behaviour

Welcome to the Organisational Behaviour course at New World University.

Organisational Behaviour is the study of how people behave in organisational settings. It is a social science that must be understood by those who seek to lead others and maintain productive organisational environments. This course emphasizes active learning, meaningful examples, and tools you can use today or put into your professional toolbox for the years to come. It includes opening cases that bring the topics to life, explanations with information you can use today, a section in each lesson on cross-cultural implications, and a section in each lesson on ethical implications, including ethical dilemmas.

This course relies with our gratitude on the first revision of the first edition of An Introduction to Organizational Behavior by Talya Bauer and Berrin Erdogan; and as such its long form readings are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 License. Note that the authors are American and use U.S. English.
