Courses

We offer an array of courses at all educational levels. Among these are in the spring of 2022 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.

Master Students: The emotionally intelligent organization (Seminar – 3 ECTS)

Research suggests that organizational life is rife with emotions, but many organizations to date are not set up in ways that effectively embrace their employees’ emotions. In this course, we explore the science behind emotions at work, we discover the role of emotional intelligence, and we discuss and creatively elaborate on how relevant findings apply at the organizational level. We thus go on a journey to search for solutions for how to implement emotional intelligence within an organizational system and bring about change for the better. Notably, the seminar features a mix of classic academic work and creative practice-oriented work. Students will thus acquire the necessary knowledge to appreciate the importance of emotional intelligence at work and explore existing and potential tools with which emotional intelligence can be applied and scaled in organizations.
