  • put different theoretical concepts (e.g. contingency theory, principal-agent theory) into concrete practical examples,
  • analyze the practical problems of organizing and derive, evaluate theory-driven solutions for case studies,
  • critically evaluate the organizational topic from a management perspective.

Subject of course

  • Basics of the division of labour and process management
  • Organizational design and structures
  • Contingency theory and outside influences
  • Informal processes and organizational culture
  • Organizational change and learning
  • Inter-organizational cooperation and corporate ethic

Teaching methods

  • Introduction in different theoretical concepts in Organization
