NPA 57000 Organizational Behavior for Nonprofit Organizations

Effective and responsible management of organizational behavior requires that managers understand and develop a capacity to manage their own behavior, influence the behavior of others at the interpersonal and group levels, and act as individual public leaders in their interactions with the public and its representatives. As a result, this course will be organized around three central themes: 1) the importance of understanding the behavior, motivations and actions of individuals in the public service; 2) a focus on the distinctiveness of management and leadership in nonprofit organizations; and 3) an emphasis on student's learning not only from required reading but also from experience. Lab fee may be required.
