Prerrequisitos

Students are required to have completed EBM01x. This course is a graduate level course that assumes an undergraduate degree level understanding in a non-cognate area.

Sobre este curso

The context in which managers work has changed dramatically over the past 50 years. And yet, the majority of business schools still teach the same foundational theories and management concepts.

In this management course, students will spend time dissecting the evidence in support of these foundational theories and concepts. Students will also learn to critically assess the relevance of existing management practice and knowledge in modern organisations, and evaluate the potential of emerging research and evidence in key management domains. Learners will explore the evolution of management thinking, organizational design, human resource management and more.

The knowledge and skills developed in this course are particularly valuable for emerging leaders, established managers, and entrepreneurs.

This course is part of the Evidence-Based Management MicroMasters Program.
