Courses

Accounting and Financial Management (Forthcoming)

  • Author: John Parkinson Ph.D., Professor of Accounting, York University
  • Instructor: TBA

Financial and management accounting knowledge is necessary to enable Human Resources Managers (HRM) to do their job effectively. In some cases, where the HRM are expected to carry out the activity, a detailed knowledge is required. This would be the case, for example, in respect of the preparation of operating budgets within HR, and the interpretation of control information based on those budgets. In other cases the HRM is expected to have a working understanding of the challenges faced by fellow members of the management team, where a familiarity with the concepts is more important than detailed knowledge.

Organizational behaviour is the study of how people behave both individually and within informal and formal groups. Every organization's performance is ultimately dependent on the motivational levels of its human resources and the willingness and ability of people to work harmoniously and effectively towards the accomplishment of shared goals. Organizational Behaviour explores and examines the interrelationships of individual personality and work, the characteristics of organizations and their environments and the challenges presented by the ever-changing combination of these factors.

Prof. Saks explore organizational structure and the environment, communication, motivation, leadership, group dynamics, decision-making, job design, and organizational change in this course. Upon completion, you will understand individual and group behaviour within small and large organizations and know how this behaviour influences organizational performance.
