Academic Affairs Committee


August 26, 2002

This is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee concerning proposed curriculum actions. Within the next 10 days, please forward any comments or concerns to the AAC Chair, Helen Biblehimer, Elliott Hall 203, ext. 4521,

The Department of Business and Economics has proposed the following Curricular Action:

Course Change Request: New Title

Course Prefix and Number: BUS 451W

Old Course Title: Behavioral Approach to Management

New Course Title: Managing Organizational Behavior

Prerequisites: None

Purpose and Nature of the Change: The rationale behind the change is to emphasize the managerial nature of organizational behavior, and provide a bridge between theory and practice. The course focuses on actual managerial problems involving organizational behavior. It deals with ways practicing managers can utilize the theories and research in the field of organizational behavior to deal with problems involving people.

The new title reflects more accurately the main objective of the course; help students understand and influence behavior in organizations by showing the connection between contemporary OB theories and actual events in organizations.
