Critically question and expand existing basic knowledge of organization theory and organizational behavior. Become familiar with three main theoretical frameworks for understanding organizations: economic, institutional, evolutionary. Apply these frameworks at different levels: individuals, groups, organizations, and populations of organizations. Understand why organizational structures and actions are subject to continual contestation, producing change and diversity in an uncertain environment. Learn to take an analytical approach to the study of organizations, drawing on several theoretical perspectives simultaneously. Learn to read, understand, and judge advanced research articles, thereby comprehending complex and ambiguous relationships as they appear in organizations and in management in general. Become able to critically reflect on organizations and the various roles the play in modern society – socially, politically, economically, and culturally.
