Course Description:

Our Master's programme in Business Administration - unlike other similar programmes - emphasises the social processes that constitute organisations. How do social processes determine the ways in which organisations and management operate and perform? In addition, in Nijmegen we have chosen an integrated approach. This attention for the whole, including social relationships is what creates a better understanding of the importance of good management and can eventually increase the performance of organisations of all kinds.

Before the programme starts, you will choose a specialisation:

Strategic Management

 

Theory and action-based learning
This programme is closely associated with the research carried out within the Institute of Management Research, where the focus is on research into relationship management, institutional dynamics, decision making and innovative management. You will become familiar with both the theoretical and practical aspects of your special subject. The programme combines a thorough training in methodology with action-based learning: you apply the theory you have learned to concrete cases and learn to develop appropriate solutions. And, in our Visa Skills Lab, students use computers to make scenario analyses and simulate decision-making processes within organisations.

Truly international
The education and research training we provide are internationally oriented. We organise International Research Projects and our students have the opportunity to take part in a new Master’s level project on European Human Resource Management, a cooperative venture among six leading European business schools and universities. Here, students work in a multi-cultural team and follow a consultancy in-company project in one of the six countries involved.

Career prospects
Graduates will find themselves in the most diverse range of management and policymaking positions in the business community, the government and the non-profit sector. They may advise administrators and managers. They may design plans and organisational models and may be involved in implementing them. Some of our graduates will decide to apply for a job as a researcher at universities and research institutes.
