The aim of the course is to present the various theories used in organizational studies, such as contingency theory, theory of organizational ecology, institutional theory, theory of organizational economics, theory of organizational learning, critical theory and postmodern theory, among other, more current theories.

Studying the main theoretical aspects in the context of organizational studies shows differences in epistemological and paradigmatic terms of theories, administrative history and organizational theories; and current theoretical conceptions in organizational studies.
