授業の概要 Course Overview

As you pursue your careers, you will inevitably depend on people to accomplish organizational goals; you will need to work for other people, work with other people, and supervise other people. For this reason, an understanding of the human side of management is an essential complement to the technical skills you are learning in other core business courses. Although skills in finance, accounting, marketing, operations, and strategy are crucial for organizational success, the ability to manage an organization, its groups, and its individuals is equally important.
This course is an introduction to a few basic concepts and topics in social psychology that relate to organizational behaviors and consumer behaviors. It will particularly look into cultural organizations, group stereotype issues, related ethical problems, and motivation and creativity in contemporary society. On the first day, we will also have a special guest, Mr. Gama, who has extensive work experience in a Japanese organization. He will discuss the importance of cultural diversity and how it can be maintained and facilitated in organizations.
The course goal is to be able to apply psychological theories and knowledge to real-world business settings in one's present and future career.

学習方法、レポート、課題に対するフィードバック方法 Course Approach, Report, Feedback methods

The course aims to introduce a few important concepts and ideas in social psychology and explain how they are applied to advancement of organizational environments and group performance. Assigned reading articles were selected from both classic studies in social psychology (e.g., motivation, stereotypes, cultures) and recent studies that present their applications in real social/organizational contexts.
Psychological knowledge of the introductory level would be helpful but not a prerequisite. Students are expected to read assigned articles/cases before the class as scheduled. The preparatory report is to be submitted in hard copy to the instructor before the first session. This is required for receiving final grades.
The final exam on Day 2 will consist of questions examining students’ understanding of important concepts and ideas as well as their critical views of social psychology in organizations.
