Group Company Project
During the Master in Management programme you will conduct one group project for a company. You will work in a team with fellow students on solving an actual problem of a specific company in the region. With your team you will compete with other teams consisting of fellow students working on the same case for the same company. The first project will be related to the topic Sustainable Development or to the Digital Economy.
Personal Development Portfolio
Throughout the year you will participate in various workshops to help you develop your personal and interpersonal skills, a vital asset for every manager.
The Master in Management programme concludes with programme integration, an individual project that will require you to prove your ability to integrate the individual core subjects of the MSM MM programme to solve an organizational challenge. The final project takes the form of an academic research paper focusing on theoretical management, or a business consultancy project with a focus on on a real-life issue for a company. You can also choose the Global Social and Economic Impact Project in the form of an Academic Research Paper.
1. The academic research paper with a theoretical management focus involves researching practical problems that organizations are confronted with, and formulating recommendations drawn from the research. The project focuses on a management or business problem encountered by a larger number of organizations (N>1).
2. The academic research paper with a focus on a real-life issue of a company involves how to advise a real life organization in solving a specific problem it is facing. Part of this project will consist of doing business research to further analyze the problem.
3. Within the Global Social and Economic Impact Project the focus of your final paper should be on one of the following global challenges:
- Food and nutrition security
- Water, energy and climate
- Sexual and reproductive health and right
- Security and the rule of law
