MGMT 54645 Institutions and Organizations

The study of organizations is enriched through an institutional understanding of their operations, cultures and effects. As professionals in business, education, government and healthcare increasingly seek to rationalize the organizational management process through quality systems, a deeper investigation of how institutional theory illuminates individual and organizational actions will serve as a critical tool for realizing quality gains. Economic, political, sociological and historical approaches to institutional theory are explored through studies in a variety of sectors.
