Field of Study


The field of Management & Organization offers courses for identifying and resolving problems that corporations face from various theoretical perspectives. Examples of problems include but are not limited to organizational designs and structures, corporate governance, organizational culture, business ethics, corporations’ social responsibilities and evaluations of good corporate citizenships, for which we build theoretical arguments and conduct empirical analyses. Moreover, some courses present opportunities to discuss the historical development of management studies and managers` “philosophies” from the theoretical and methodological stand points. Throughout these opportunities, students will be able to learn theories about management and organizations and develop various analytical perspectives for understanding and resolving complicated management problems in rapidly-changing globalized societies.
