Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Organizations, not individuals, are this course's basic unit of analysis. We will seek to answer questions about organizations, such as why they exist, what objectives they pursue, how they function, how they survive and grow, who they interact with, how they interact with each other, how they are evaluated, and how they respond to failure. In answering these questions, the course will introduce students to major theoretical perspectives and issues studied in organizational theory.

Registrar Notes:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
