College of Business and Economics

Credits: 3

Organizations are webs of interconnected formal (reporting lines, team memberships, workflows) and informal (friendship, help, conflict) relationships. The pattern, presence, or absence of these relationships can hinder or assist in the functioning of an organizational. This class is designed to teach an analytic approach to the measurement and interpretation of these patterns known as social network analysis. Topic covered in the class include: basic network concepts, network data structures, network data entry, individual, group, and organizational measures of networks, and network visualizations. The course is very hands-on with students leveraging network software (UCINET) in virtually every meeting. A student will benefit from this course by acquiring the ability to think about, collect, and measure social networks within an organization.

Prereq: Graduate standing.
Approved for Distance Learning.
