Courses

We offer an array of courses at all educational levels. Among these are in the spring of 2019 the following courses:


Bachelor Studies: Emotions and Moods in Organizations (Seminar – 3 ECTS)

Students will discover the important role of emotions and moods in organizations. We will begin with a definition of emotions, moods and related psychological constructs, and then explore why emotions and moods matter for organizational outcomes. We study individual emotions, as well as shared emotions at the group-level and at the organizational level. We conclude with an application of our knowledge to envision how the workplace of the future could look like.

This course will guide students over a century of leadership research and studies, with the aim to offer a leadership toolkit. We will use various theoretical perspectives on leadership and draw on original readings for our discussions. The students will learn to think critically about leadership, the boundary conditions of leadership theories, and how to better influence others.
