If you work in an organisation, you probably think you know a lot about them. But do you? An organisation continually has to adapt to changes in the competitive environment. Its effectiveness depends on the motivation and behaviour of the workforce. To capitalise on the capabilities of the workforce, it must have appropriate incentives, develop effective teams, design an attractive job environment and manage the dynamics of organisational change. By understanding the principles of organisational behaviour you acquire a deeper knowledge of how you relate to other members of the organisation.

Topics covered

  • Basics of organisational behaviour related to management.
  • Stress and well-being at work.
  • Contemporary theories of motivation.
  • Organisational control and reward systems.
  • Job design and employee reactions to work.
  • Workgroup dynamics and group-based problem solving.
  • Influence processes in organisations: power, politics, leadership.
  • Organisational design and new service-driven organisations.
  • Managing transitions: organisational culture and change.
  • You read on distance and can take the exam at another location in the world.
  • You will receive an international certificate from one of the world's leading universities.
  • You get a solid material.
  • You get strong support through the web.
  • You turn knowledge directly into “business in practice”.
  • You get academic credits and the benefit of the wider international studies (MBA, MSc and DBA).



MBA education has been very stimulating and gave me the tools to apply the knowledge practically in the workplace. The flexibility to learn on distance fits perfectly with a job that involves lots of travelling.
