The Firm and Organization

The Firm and Organization stream examines various aspects of the modern corporation, both its internal organization and its relationship with organizations in the national and international society in which corporations operate.

Courses offered in this stream will focus on the manner in which work and workers are organized within and without the corporation, and on the circumstances under which the relation between owners, managers and workers are more or less adversarial. There is a particular focus on how the organization of the corporation is affected by and, in turn, affects gender disparities in society. Issues of corporate governance and regulation also form part of the focus of this stream.

This stream would be a good choice for those students who aim to work in the corporate world, though it should be stressed that none of the stream's courses are aimed to equip students with concrete skills of the corporate workplace.
