Specific course information

The relationship between organizations and the economic, social and political events is undeniable. However, the analysis of the impacts of that relationship is made usually from a limited perspective of management. Thence, the organizational analysis tries to incorporate elements from several disciplines to strengthen the understanding of the organizational structures, processes and practices. Thus, this course is concerned with the definition of the fundamental concepts that constitute an interdisciplinary study of the complex dynamics of modern organizations.
