- Quality education
In “Organizational Behavior” learning comes from regular class attendance and participation.Class meetings are based on a mix of traditional lectures, decentralized student-to student interaction, teamwork, role-playing games, and case-based discussion. Reading activities complement, but cannot substitute direct personal involvement in hands-on class activities.
Evaluation of coursework is based on the combined result of class participation, two mid-term tests and a final exam.
