About the programme

The 2-year Master in Business and Technology, organized by the Solvay Business School of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, focuses on business aspects of modern-day technology. The programme contains advanced business courses, technology courses, as well as courses that combine both perspectives, such as the Entrepreneurship course.

This English variant of the Dutch-language Handelsingenieur ('Business Engineering') Master is not just a copy. On the contrary, the Solvay Master of Business & Technology focuses even more on IT and innovation and has a clear international flavour.

You will have the opportunity to take a number of elective courses in the second year, thus allowing you to personalise your curriculum and specialise more in either business, technology, or both.

Becoming a business engineer

Economics as its foundation, technology as added value and entrepreneurship as a guideline - this, in short, is the philosophy behind the Belgian academic qualification of 'Business Engineer' (Handelsingenieur / Ingénieur de Gestion, sometimes translated as 'Management Engineer' or 'Commercial Engineer').

Bridge the gap between the different worlds

The idea is to train professionals who are able to understand the jargon and business environment of all of their colleagues, whether they are engineers, economists, lawyers, computer scientists or they have other specialisations. Our graduates can bridge the gap between the different worlds of the many and varying professions in the workforce.

Solid foundation in economics

During the bachelor phase of our degree, which is only offered in Dutch, our students develop a solid foundation in economics and are immersed in business disciplines such as marketing, finance, management and human resource management. This is combined with a thorough grounding in mathematics, statistics and computer science, while a strong basis in science is provided by coursework in physics, chemistry, electronics and technology. Another unique aspect of the business engineer’s education is a strong focus on language skills.

This broad background is the cornerstone of our master’s programme, and all students admitted to the program are expected to have a similar knowledge base.

High-level business programme

Through this programme international undergraduate students have the opportunity to benefit from the expertise of the Solvay Business School without having to attend classes in Dutch. Participation in a high-level business programme in Brussels, the capital of Europe, is a great asset for any student who strives to be prepared for the challenge of management in a globalised world.

Approach

Interdisciplinary

The Master in Business and Technology is a unique interdisciplinary programme with a clear focus on all business aspects of cutting edge technology, offering advanced courses in business, technology and their intersection. The offered technology courses are taught by professors from both the Faculty of Exact Sciences and the Faculty of Engineering Science. Professors of the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences & Solvay Business School for their part will provide students with highly specialised knowledge in economics and business aspects.

Intercultural

Students in the Master in Business and Technology will meet with peers from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds while greatly improving their English language skills.

International

All of the courses in the Master in Business and Technology have a distinct international flavour. Due to its all-round and international character, the programme provides students with a multitude of career opportunities after graduation.

Career prospects

Our programmes aim to equip students with the general and widely applicable analytical, argumentative and problem solving skills and abilities valued by employers. Some of our postgraduate students have gone on to a career in academic Philosophy, but a variety of careers are open to those obtaining postgraduate Philosophy degrees, including business, management, the law, the media, the arts, computing, the Civil Service and teaching.

The MRes Arts may enhance the career prospects of those working or wishing to work in fields associated with the study of Arts subjects or other areas of academic work and study, including teachers, librarians, and professional writers. While managerial positions often require the ability to conduct research or project-work and to demonstrate sustained and complex organisational skills in ways encompassed by this programme, its emphasis on oral and written communication skills as well as on IT-based presentation skills will be useful for many types of employment. Some students may want to take this course for its own sake and for the sake of personal development and the revitalization of subject awareness. Equally, the MRes is designed to prepare students too for further research at MPhil or PhD level, and to enable them to enter postgraduate study, thus offering a first step towards a career in academic teaching and research.

The advanced study of one or more Arts subject on this programme equips students with powers of fine discrimination and judgement that will set them apart in workplaces of many kinds. The skills it fosters are those which enable graduates to deal logically with the complex demands of a whole range of careers. These skills include:

- the ability to process large amounts of information
- the ability to organise disparate material into a coherent argument
- the capacity to compare many different views and come to a decision about the merits of each
- the independence to define a complex project and bring it to completion with minimal input.
- imaginative and creative responsiveness to problems
- powers of expression (both written and oral) which allow for the lucid delineation of nuanced ideas.

Such skills are essential for those considering careers in, for example, journalism, publishing, management, and the law. Graduates have gone on to work in a wide variety of professions. Our alumni include lecturers, communication specialists, broadcasters, writers, teachers, librarians, public relations managers and publishers.

MRes Arts students will have access to the University's Careers and Employability Service and to careers events at both School and University level. Supervisors and other academic staff will be able to provide guidance and support to students intending to progress to doctoral study and academic careers.

ERIM Master of Philosophy in Business Research (ERIM Research Master) is an integral part of a 5-year Erasmus Doctoral Programme in Business and Management (2 years Master+ 3 years PhD) that is being offered by the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM).

Students participating in the ERIM Research Master choose one of the five domains of management:
- Business Processes, Logistics & Information Systems
- Organisation
- Marketing
- Finance and Accounting
- Strategy & Entrepreneurship.

ERIM Research Master was specifically designed for academically talented and motivated students who would like to combine education in a specialisation of their choice with the challenges of undertaking research in that field. With no more than 30 fellow students, this programme offers individual supervision, a highly personal approach and the opportunity to research your chosen subject in great depth. The amount and composition of the course work depends on the candidate’s specific educational background and individual profile. The entire programme is taught in English by some of the most distinguished management research academics in the world. It provides the perfect preparation for a PhD in either Management or Business, or for a research position in the wider world of business.

In the first year students follow courses on research methodology and methods, courses in management foundations, and courses in their chosen specialisation domain. In the second year students choose from a number of advanced courses on methodology and advanced (research) courses in the specialisation domain. Furthermore, ERIM research master students receive skills training (presentation skills, publishing skills, academic writing skills etc.) and actively participate in research seminars, together with ERIM faculty and visiting professors and fellows. The programme is concluded with a scientific thesis, combined with a research proposal.

Through its position within the research school, the ERIM Master of Philosophy in Business Research programme is embedded in an academic research environment of an excellent level and international standing. The programme contains many mechanisms whereby students can develop their knowledge through the interaction with ERIM members. Only ERIM members with an outstanding performance are allowed to teach on the ERIM Master of Philosophy in Business Research programme. Most of them are full professors. In addition, throughout the programme students are stimulated to engage in research activities and research interactions with ERIM members. This is facilitated not only by the formal curriculum. Students are also offered research assistantships that enable them to participate actively in research projects with ERIM members, not merely as typical student assistants but as true collaborators.

The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) officially accredited ERIM on June 3, 1999. On July 1, 2011, the KNAW re-accredited ERIM for the next six years. The ERIM Master of Philosophy in Business Research has been accredited by the Dutch and Flemish Accreditation Organisation for higher education (NVAO) in 2004 and re-accredited in 2009 for another 6 years.

The internal quality assurance of the ERIM Master of Philosophy in Business Research is not only embedded in the regular accreditation process of ERIM as a whole, but also within the (international) accreditation of the RSM, by organizations like AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS. The RSM is part of an elite group of less than 1% of business schools around the world that hold the “Triple Crown” of accreditation by the three leading international accreditation organizations (AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS). All programmes offered by RSM, including the programmes offered by ERIM such as the ERIM Master of Philosophy in Business Research, are regularly assessed by these international accreditation organizations.

The Graduate Diploma in Philosophy is a one-year conversion course (two years part-time), designed for those who already have a degree and wish to pursue an interest in philosophy. No formal training in philosophy is required. The programme provides an ideal learning environment if you are interested in progressing to an MA in Philosophy, or simply want the opportunity to learn about philosophy.

Course structure

The Diploma has two main components:
-Four undergraduate modules. At least two of these must be at Level 3 and no more than one should be at Level 1.

Learning and Teaching

Students in the Graduate Diploma programme receive an average of eight timetabled contact hours per week over the course of the programme. The contact hours come in the form of lectures, tutorials and seminars, depending on the four modules chosen by the student. In addition, students are offered six hours of one-to-one dissertation supervision with an expert in their chosen research area.

Philosophical development involves not only familiarizing oneself with a body of knowledge but also acquiring skills in critical reasoning and argumentation. Thus, in addition to introducing students to key works in philosophy, the programme offers many opportunities for dialogical interaction. Lecture sessions include time for questions, tutorials consist mainly of structured, critical dialogue in a supportive environment, and seminars provide opportunities for extended discussion. Dissertation supervision meetings give guidance on suitable reading, critical discussion of relevant sources, detailed advice on how to write a 12,000 word piece of research, and intensive critical engagement with the student’s philosophical position and argument.

Timetabled contact is only a part of the learning process; its aim is to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to navigate the relevant literature themselves and to pursue independent learning. Lectures and accompanying documents contextualise material and introduce students to topics, positions and debates. At least four hours of additional study per week are recommended for each lecture or seminar, which includes reading and the completion of assignments. Having completed the reading, students engage in discussion in seminars or return to lecture topics in small group tutorials. These help students to refine their understanding of material and to develop the reasoning skills needed to formulate, present, defend and criticise philosophical positions.

Graduate Diploma students also can benefit from a range of other activities in the department, including the department’s postgraduate philosophy society (EIDOS), weekly research seminars and reading groups, and occasional conferences, workshops and Royal Institute of Philosophy lectures. The programme director remains in contact with students throughout the year and is always available to discuss any issues that might arise, whether personal or academic.

Course detail

- Description -

Students must earn a total of 180 credits.

60 of these will come from a dissertation of around 10,000 words, on an approved topic in the philosophy of psychology/mind, to be completed over the Summer at the end of the course. A student who satisfactorily completes the course up to the point of the dissertation may exit the programme without completing one, and will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Philosophy of Psychology on the basis of their 120 credits.

Of those initial 120 credits, 80 will normally be required to come from all four of the following modules:

- Philosophy of Psychology I
- Philosophy of Psychology II
- Philosophy of Mind
- Philosophy of Mind II: Special Topics.

In case a student has already taken a similar module in the course of their undergraduate studies, this requirement might occasionally be relaxed: although the first Philosophy of Mind module is the only one where there is a realistic prospect that this will happen. Students are also encouraged to consider the Concept of Mental Disorder module, and may wish to substitute this for one of those listed above.

- Course purpose -

This programme is suited both to students with an undergraduate philosophy degree and to those converting to philosophy from another subject (for instance, psychology) at undergraduate level. For philosophy graduates, it will consolidate and augment their existing knowledge, with a special emphasis on philosophy of psychology and philosophy of mind, and it will provide a firm foundation for subsequent independent research in this area. For conversion students, there is a General Philosophy module which is designed specifically to introduce them to key texts, concepts and arguments from right across the philosophical spectrum: by means of this module, in conjunction with their more specialised studies in the philosophy of psychology, such students will also be prepared for further research.

Career Prospects:

Usually to further research; also to teaching, management, the financial or the public sector.

You can acquire another specialized Master‘s Degree at one of our partner universities as part of the Dual Degree program. To obtain this degree, you will spend two semesters abroad. Over 20 programs at the following universities are available: National Taiwan Normal University (TW), Florida International University (US), Boston University (US), Bond University (AU), SKEMA Business School (FR), Regent‘s University London (GB).

Practice-Oriented and Customized

The MBS lecturers and professors not only know the business world from books - on the contrary: It is part of the MBS teaching philosophy that only experts experienced in everyday business life teach current and practice-oriented content and methods. The course "Business Project" is one example for the practical relevance of the Master study program. It grants you the opportunity to implement a specific economic project in cooperation with a company. Thus, the acquired knowledge is applied and expanded to a specific case. All groups receive coaching from an MBS professor throughout the entire duration of the 8-month project period.

Course detail

- Description -

The programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding and skills in Philosophy of Medicine and Psychiatry. They will also have the opportunity to study other areas of Philosophy, selected from a broad range of modules, covering all areas of the subject. Those converting in from other subjects at undergraduate level will be strongly encouraged to take 'General Philosophy' as one of their options.

The programme has three elements:

(i) Two core modules, worth 20 credits each: Philosophy of Medicine and Perspectives on Death & Killing
(ii) Dissertation of around 10,000 words, on a topic in the philosophy of medicine, worth 60 credits.
(iii) Around four modules chosen from the MA courses in Philosophy, including General Philosophy, totalling 80 credits (with permission, one course may be taken outside the Department).

All students, including part-time students, should ensure that they are available to attend seminars at least two days a week.

- Course purpose -

The programme is geared equally to students who already have some training in Philosophy and to those who wish to convert into the field after pursuing another subject at undergraduate level (which may be, but need not be, Medicine). It will enable the former students to consolidate their existing knowledge and to augment it with a close focus on issues in the Philosophy of Medicine. The latter students will normally be expected (though not strictly required) to take a special ‘General Philosophy’ module, which will introduce them to key theories and arguments, concepts and terminology, and classic texts from right across the philosophical spectrum. For students of both kinds, the programme will provide a firm foundation for subsequent doctoral research.

- Course format and assessment -

Mostly taught through lectures and seminars; assessed through coursework and/or examinations plus a dissertation.

Career Prospects:

Further research in philosophy of medicine, or one or other branch of the medical profession; but also teaching, management, the financial or public sector.

Overview

This course is about analysing the relation of philosophy and science in terms of their historical development, as well as the current situation.
Philosophy and science don't mix. Or do they? What we nowadays call "science" used to be part of "philosophy." It is not a coincidence that Isaac Newton called his physical masterpiece "The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy." And today, the two are still closely connected. Our current worldview is strongly shaped by scientific thought. We look to science for both answers to our theoretical questions and solutions to our practical problems.

The Master's specialisation in Philosophy and Science analyses the relation of philosophy and science in terms of their historical development, as well as the current situation. How did the scientific worldview come about? What are its components? What models have been proposed for the relationship between philosophical and scientific thinking?

This Master's specialisation will give you a better understanding of the evolution, the current status and the implications of the scientific worldview. Professionally, it prepares you for several possible avenues, in fields including science administration, research, journalism, and policy-making.

Why study Philosophy and Science at Radboud University?

- The focus on the historical and systematic relationship between philosophy and science is unique in the Netherlands.
- The Philosophy Faculty has close ties with scientists and professors at the other faculties on campus - and philosophy as a subject is an integral part of all the faculties at Radboud University. This makes it easier for our students to combine Philosophy with any discipline when working on their thesis.
- Teaching takes place in a stimulating, collegial setting with small groups.
- The seminars specifically train skills such as critical reading, analytical thinking, policy writing and debating.
- This Master's specialisation is run by the Center for the History of Philosophy and Science (CHPS), the only centre in the world that studies philosophy and science as historically intertwined phenomena.
- This Master's specialisation is aimed at career prospects in, as well outside of, research.

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

Career prospects

During the specialisation Philosophy and Science you will learn to think about issues in debates with major thinkers. You will study texts by philosophers of the past and present. What you learn here is applicable to the social, scientific and political situations around us.

After you graduate, you’ll be well situated to analyse texts and extract concepts. You’ll have the ability to think out of the box and to think creatively about possible solutions. You can use those skills in society, in political or social debates and in your work.

Job positions

Graduates of the Master’s specialisation in Philosophy and Science have many options. You can work within journalism and become a journalist, editor or critic. You can also become a policy advisor for a governmental organisation, or for other cultural and social institutions. You can also work as a philosopher in business, communications advisor or ethical expert. And Dutch students who would like to become teachers within the Netherlands could continue to attain the academic teacher’s degree for the subject of Philosophy (leraar Filosofie).
