MBA in Transatlantic Management

Be a part of the global study world

The Berlin full-time MBA in Transatlantic Management prepares for leadership or consulting roles in companies or organisations which operate in a transatlantic context. The pathway course content will focus on general international management issues with a particular focus on transatlantic issues. Students will learn about topics such as the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union and their implications for cross-border trade and foreign direct investment.

Certain forms of market entry such as licensing/franchising will receive particular attention. Important variations in business law and corporate governance standards on both sides of the Atlantic will be examined. Differences in business culture and general business practices in American and European companies will be elucidated.

The primary focus is on finding viable and feasible management solutions in real-life situations confronting cross-boarder-aware businesses and organisations.

To realise this goal effectively, business theory is always linked to best practices and placed in an intercultural context – a process that underscores how business activities are located within a social surround where overall economic and social factors play their part.

The Master program International Health & Social Management prepares its students for the requirements of a future-oriented field of work where an understanding of the links between health care and social organizations – charitable and profit-oriented, public and private, national and international – is essential. The medium-term outlook for graduates of the 2-year Master program is administrative and upper-level management positions in the health care sector, in the social and public sector and related fields.

Due to the changing health care environment, the demand for qualified persons in this sector is constantly rising. Across the European Union, health and social systems and related policies are becoming more interconnected than ever before, with more movement of people, citizens, patients and professionals. This increased interconnectedness raises many policy issues, including quality and access in cross-border services, information requirements for citizens, patients, health professionals and policy-makers, the scope for cooperation in the health and social arena, and how to reconcile national policies with European obligations in general.

The Master program International Health & Social Management is interconnected with the study offer of the European Master in Health Economiecs and Management.

Please notice also our innovative double degree option in cooperation with the University of Economics in Prague.

Contents

The full-time Master program International Health & Social Management comprises 4 semesters of 15 weeks each and starts every winter semester. Graduates of the program are conferred the academic degree “Master of Arts in Business”. Lectures are held in English. Attendance is generally mandatory for all lectures. Students have the option to spend the 3rd semester or earn a double degree at a partner university abroad; the lectures attended there will be counted towards the required credit units. The Master program has been accredited by both the European Health Management Association EHMA and the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation FIBAA.

In recent years the world has seen many violent conflicts, ranging from the former Yugoslavia, Congo, Afghanistan to Iraq. Many of the violent conflicts are nowadays fought over issues as identity, territory or resources (e.g. diamonds and oil). War between states has become rare; most of the violent conflicts take place within the borders of a state. In addition, ‘terrorist' organisations with goals that exceed national agendas have claimed more attention than before. The international community - governments, non-governmental organisations and international organisations like the UN - has a significant interest in the management and resolution of violent conflicts.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/cti

Entry Requirements (Additional)

The requirements for admission include:

- A Bachelor's degree in Human Geography received from Radboud University or another relevant bachelor degree with at least 24 EC in conflict studies and/or political geography

- Having successfully completed a course in social scientific research methods is highly recommended and will increase your chance of getting selected for this specialisation

- Excellent proficiency in English

- A letter of motivation

- Two letters of recommendation

- List of your grades obtained during previous training

Career Prospects

Graduates of the Master's in Human Geography will be qualified for many different job positions. These jobs all require excellent analytical skills at an academic level, a critical perspective, thorough knowledge of societal relations and a clear vision of how crucial societal problems can be solved. Human Geography graduates find jobs rather easily at (international) research institutes, international companies, or at consultancy firms. Top-ranking positions, in private industry as well as in governmental and non-governmental organisations can also be found.

Our approach to this field

If you choose the master specialisation Conflicts, Territories and Identities you will study (inter)national conflict, war and the physical and mental borders that come along with these. We will focus on the backgrounds, contexts and sources - imperialism, geopolitics, failing states, religions, (national) identities, discrimination, resources, borders - and the management and resolution - good governance, border management, humanitarian aid, development aid, diplomacy, peace operations. You will become familiar with the political and social construction of conflicts, territories and identities, as well as with the theory and practice of (inter)national conflict management.

Our research in this field

The Master's specialisation in Conflicts, Territories and Identities is a joint project of the Centre for International Conflict Analysis & Management (CICAM) and the Department of Human Geography of Radboud University. Together they offer the state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in the field of conflict analysis and management, that you will need in your future career as a scholar, a (inter)national policy or decision maker, a conflict manager, or as a journalist. You will be able to apply scholarly ideas and concepts to complex conflict situations in practice. The central question in this programme is: ‘how can violent conflicts be analysed, understood or explained and how can they be managed?'

You will be taught by professors who study these issues and publish their findings in international academic journals and contribute to the public debate in the Netherlands. You will study theories, methods and instruments, but above all you will develop a critical attitude. You will learn that there are always multiple approaches to any problem. The Master's programme in Conflicts, Territories and Identities includes a variety of cases, individual and group assignments, lectures and seminars, small national excursions and an international excursion to a (former) conflict zone. The programme gives you the opportunity to share experiences with other students and to link theory with practice. You can also specialise by selecting a specific elective course and by choosing a topic for your final Master's thesis. Furthermore there are good opportunities for interesting and challenging research-internships.
