Course detail

The teaching hours are designed to have minimal impact on the working day and additional study is undertaken in your own time, so you can study while working, and won't need ask your employer to release you for significant amounts of time. You can, however, still benefit from regular contact with lecturers, tutors and your fellow students.

The CMS is run over two terms, and the DMS over three terms, usually between 4.00pm – 9.00pm, one day a week. The MA course runs over four terms, usually with entry points in September and May.

As the course focuses on core management skills and practice, it is relevant to both public and private enterprises, the profit and not for profit sectors and small to large organisations.

Content

-Parts 1 and 2: CMS/DMS-

The whole DMS course consists of six taught modules in total with students taking two modules per term. The Certificate comprises three modules.

The modules build a general framework related to the core management disciplines and the strategic role of management applied to daily management activity.

-Part 3: MA Management Studies-

When you obtain a pass on the existing Diploma in Management Studies you'll be eligible to proceed to the Masters in Management Studies. Additionally, prospective students who have an equivalent level qualification or who have substantial Senior Management experience may be eligible for entry to the MA via the process of Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). In either case, course members will normally be required to currently hold a management position.

Assessment

Courswork, including written reports, assignments, presentations and case studies. Additionally, for the MA, a Management Research Report is required of 11,000-15,000 words. This typically takes six months to complete.

What can I do next?

Many successful candidates from this course benefit from using their new found qualification and confidence to progress their careers with their current employer, or to use it to secure promotions or new employment elsewhere. Other candidates have used the qualification as a way to improve what they are undertaking within their current role.

Physicists and astronomers try to understand nature. from the smallest building blocks of matter and their interactions to the evolution of the universe on a cosmological scale. Read more

Physicists and astronomers try to understand nature: from the smallest building blocks of matter and their interactions to the evolution of the universe on a cosmological scale. Ultimately, this endeavour leads to new insights that are helpful in other scientific disciplines, and to many applications in our daily lives. Although our insights go ever deeper and reach ever further, there is much we still do not understand. That is why basic research remains so important.

3 Minors, 1 Degree

This MSc programme combines the research expertise of both the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and Universiteit Gent (UGent), allowing you to tailor your study programme to your interests. One choice you have to make in advance is which of our three minors you want to follow: Research, Economy and Business or Education (30 ECTS in Dutch). No matter which minor you choose, you will get a solid training as a physicist and we offer you the possibility to participate in high-level research. There is no wrong choice!

Mobility

If you choose the Research minor, you will have to take up two External Mobility-courses. These allow you to follow courses at another university or to do an internship at a company or research institution. A combination of courses and internship is also possible. The internship will be assessed through a report and presentation.

Students as Scientists

The offered courses are strongly embedded in both universities' ongoing research programmes. Through intensive collaboration with members of the research groups, you will get the opportunity to develop and improve your scientific skills. The researchers at VUB have strong connections within Belgium and in- and outside Europe through research projects such as the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica and the CMS experiment at CERN in Geneva. Many of our students have the opportunity to do an internship or research for their Master's thesis at CERN during their studies. this close connection to research means our students are well-prepared for a PhD-position, with around half of our graduates pursuing such a career in research.

Did you know that VUB postdocs and faculty are leading international teams of scienctists? For example Dr. Petra Van Mulders, a VUB alumnus and postdoctoral researcher, was until recently leading the team working on identification of particles called b-quarks at the CMS experiment at CERN. The results of her work are now used by researchers all over the world in the attempt to determine the characteristics of the recently discovered Brout-Englert-Higgs particle.

Room for interaction and discussion

Physics students at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel attend lectures, exercises, lab sessions and excursions in small groups. There is room for interaction and discussion, and a low threshold for students to actively participate. This programme pays special attention to critical analysis.

The different research groups at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel are in close contact with leading universities and research institutes around the world, which allows you to do part of your studies and/or the research for your Master’s thesis abroad. Our research groups work for example at the particle accelerator at CERN.

(a) COMP501 Topics in Operating Systems

(b) COMP513 Topics in Computer Networks

(c) COMP514 Carrier and ISP Networks

**45 points of appropriate 500 level computer science papers.

***Capable students may opt for COMP593 Computer Science Thesis (90 points) as an alternative to COMP592, subject to the Dean's approval. This will result in 15 points remaining for a relevant 500 level paper, on top of the compulsory 15 point Infrastructure paper

Computing facilities at Waikato

The computing facilities at the University of Waikato are among the best in New Zealand. You'll have 24 hour access to computer labs running the latest industry standard software.

The University of Waikato is also home to New Zealand’s first cyber security lab, where the Cybersecurity Researchers of Waikato (CROW) operate from – the creators of the annual New Zealand Cyber Security Challenge.

Build a successful career

Demand for trained professionals in cyber security is increasing globally at 3.5 times the rate of the overall job market. Once you've completed your training in this area, you'll be qualified to do a number of different types of roles in an industry with a 'near zero' unemployment rate.

Our graduates are in high demand and most of our alumni work in the top public and private organisations in New Zealand and internationally – like Sjoerd de Feijter, who is now a Junior Software Engineer for multinational corporation Gallagher.

Each student normally first enrols on the MPhil degree. After completing the first year of the MPhil, the student's progress is reviewed, and, if considered satisfactory, the student is permitted to transfer to the PhD for a further two to three years of research. A student who does not wish to continue at this point may write up and submit the work to be considered for an MPhil degree.

MPhil/PhD students are usually provided with two supervisors, who guide them through the research. The supervisors are usually research staff from within the Department, although a supervisor may be appointed from another Department or from outside the university. The Department has a number of research groups focusing on practical and important real-life problems.

The Department also offers a one-year MSc by Research, please go online for more information.
