Advanced Topics in Organizational Behaviour Summer School

Summer School


State of the science coverage of key themes in organizational behaviour, with the emphasis on the possibilities to use this knowledge in the own research.


Course contents The course targets students with an active interest in behavioural research in management that seek to use insights from organizational behaviour in their own research – regardless of whether this is in organizational behaviour, strategic management, innovation management, behavioural operations management, or another area of behavioural research in management. Basic knowledge of behavioural research is therefore required, so the course can concentrate on advanced coverage of the state of the science.

On the basis of review/conceptual articles as well as exemplars of empirical research, the course covers a series of key themes in organizational behaviour (e.g., teams, leadership, creativity & innovation, social networks). The format is a combination of short lectures, interactive discussion, in-class exercises, and guest lectures to develop an in-depth understanding of the current state of play in a series of subareas of organizational behaviour. The bottom line aim of the sessions is to provide input for participants’ own research – the course should not only develop one’s knowledge of research in organizational behaviour, but also lead to actionable knowledge that can be translated into the own research efforts.
