Schumpeter for the 21st century. Conducting business in an entrepreneurial way and having the capacity for innovation are the most important competitive factors in many business sectors today. Read more

Schumpeter for the 21st century

Conducting business in an entrepreneurial way and having the capacity for innovation are the most important competitive factors in many business sectors today. To this end, the Austrian-born economist, Joseph Schumpeter, created the term "creative destruction": The stronger incessantly pushes the weaker. The existing economic structure is altered through innovation. Companies failing to rise to this challenge disappear from the market place. However, anyone determining the rules of the game as an innovator, not only generates wealth and social benefits, but may also achieve a temporary monopoly profit.

Innovations are not just the rare, trailblazing "break-throughs". Value is alos generated from companies by creative product improvements, altered processes, new markets and more intelligent organizational syltes. Entrepreneurial opportunities are constantly arising in technologies and markets, and many ideas are just waiting for their commercial implementation. The ability to make use of them will become a key qualification for executives and managers. It is particularly at the interface between economics and technology that there lies a great deal of unexplored potential.

The Program

The Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation provides the appropriate skills and techniques, and thereby teaches entrepreneurial thinking and acting. The lecturers are internationally renowned experts. The organizers, the TU Wien and the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), represent the link between technological excellence and business competence. This Professional MBA is an important step in the transfer of cutting-edge knowledge and management skills at the highest international level.

In this program, innovation is understood as the process through which knowledge and creativity lead to product or service changes. Entrepreneurship is then the process through which knowledge and creativity generate new ways of delivering these products and services, either through a new organization or through reformation of an existing enterprise.

Contents

The Professional MBA Program comprises of general economic science modules and specialist in-depth modules. The basic modules of economic science raise all of the participants to a common level of sound, fundamental economic knowledge and serve as quality assurance for knowledge that has already been acquired.

  • Managing People and Organizations
  • Strategy and Innovation
  • Managerial Economics and Decision Analysis
  • Accounting and Finance
  • Marketing and Markets
  • Operations and IT
  • Leadership and Ethics

In the second year, the professional specialization and immersion in the subject matter take place. The final part of the MBA Program serves for the consolidation and integration of what has been learned, as well as the writing of a practically-orientated Master's Thesis.

  • Sources of Innovation
  • Strategy of Innovation
  • Marketing of Innovation
  • Organization of Innovation
  • Financing and Controlling of Innovation
  • Entrepreneurial Leadership
  • Master's Thesis

Master's specialisation in Accounting and Control

Gaining the skills and academic knowledge required to become a professional in the domains of auditing, accountancy, controlling and financial management/consulting.

Do you want to dive into the nitty-gritty of a company’s financial system? Interested in managing the company’s financial affairs? Or perhaps you’d prefer to examine and assess a firm’s financial system to provide high-quality public accountability.

After a general overview of the most recent mainstream and divergent economic theories, the Master’s programme in Accounting and Control immerses you in the world of governance, control and accounting. This programme will teach you everything about the figures that make businesses operate. And once you graduate you will have the chance to discover the variety of businesses, processes and people hidden behind the figures.

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

Why study Accounting & Control at Radboud University?

- We see accounting and control as more than simply learning to use and analyse information systems, management strategies and control mechanisms. Your findings will influence the behaviour of people and institutions. We therefore emphasise the importance of ethics and other applicable aspects of the profession.

- We teach you a blend of technical skills that are always fueled and supported by academic research and developments. We will show you how to discover the practical relevance of academic discoveries even when they may not be directly applicable to day-to-day work.

- Apart from other financial positions, this programme distinctly lays a good foundation for students desiring to become chartered accountants and controllers, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

- Education and research go hand in hand at Radboud University. Our lecturers are highly active in academic and applied research which allows them to incorporate the latest academic developments and applied issues. This close link between education and research also enables you to actively participate in academic research during your Master’s programme.

- In all of our Master’s programmes, professors and students interact in small groups, thus providing a collegial style of learning.

- Economics at Radboud University could be called ‘Economics Plus’. The ‘standard’ economics package is expanded with relevant knowledge from related disciplines such as psychology and sociology, offering more in-depth knowledge that can be applied in today’s globalised world.

Dealing with conflicts

At Radboud University we challenge you to see financial professions as much more than just dealing with money and trade. Apart from the important economic aspects, we also examine the social side of the profession in order to train you to be critical of a company’s financial processes, as well as your of own profession, and to consider the consequences of the decisions you make. It will help you deal with the inherent conflicts you will undoubtedly come across in your future profession.

Admission requirements for international students

- A proficiency in English

In order to take part in this programme, you need to have fluency in both written and spoken English. Non-native speakers of English without a Dutch Bachelor's degree or VWO diploma need one of the following:

(Certificates may not be older than two year. No other certificates are accepted.)

- TOEFL (iBT) Certificate: minimum overall score of 90, with subscores not lower than 18

- IELTS Academic Certificate: minimum overall score of 6.5, with subscores not lower than 6.0

- Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE): minimum score of C

- Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE): minimum score of C

Career prospects

Employers are increasingly looking for economists who are highly financially literate and can tackle a wide variety of economic problems. This Master’s specialisation will provide you with the skills and academic knowledge required to become a professional in the domains of auditing, accountancy, controlling and financial management/consulting. It will teach you to use your analytical skills to find the shortest route to the best solution and to take the consequences of possible actions into consideration before making a decision.

Our graduates therefore have the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to work in financial positions for audit firms, management consulting firms, financial institutions, large and medium-sized businesses, as well as for government and not-for-profit organisations.

Job positions

This Master’s specialisation is a step in the right direction towards professions as:

- Chartered accountant / Certified public accountant (Dutch = registeraccountant)

- Chartered controller / Business controller (Dutch = registercontroller)

- Management consultant

- Financial advisor / Financial officer

Our approach to this field

Particularly, but not exclusively, this Master’s specialisation provides students with the latest knowledge in the disciplines of accounting information systems, management accounting and control, financial accounting and governance, auditing, organisational learning, strategy management and corporate finance.

Our approach to the field of accounting and control resembles those of the London School of Economics and of the Copenhagen Business School, two universities known for their multidisciplinary and critical view on risk management. Like these prestigious universities, we believe in a broad theoretical basis. We therefore start by teaching our students general economic theories that include not just the mainstream theories but also unorthodox ones that provide a well-rounded perspective to contemporary economics.

The Economics Department at Radboud University is also known for its unique approach of focusing on the social and institutional aspects of the various topics that are taught. We teach our students a pluralistic view, showing how figures can influence people’s perception of a company and therefore also demonstrating the power and responsibility that comes with these professions. It’s important to understand that accounting can aid management but also that it is much more than just a tool, as it can influence behaviour.This needs to be understood not only by accountants, but also by future controllers, auditors and financial managers and advisors.

Technicians, scientists, pharmacists or even lawyers, all of them are already an expert in their field of study. So why would they consider a MBA program? A Master of Business Administration strengthens leadership and social competences and provides participants with legal and economic know-how. MBAs, thus, prepare new leaders for taking over more responsibilites and managing positions.

The Program

The General Management MBA is your kick-off to a career in business! The successful MBA Program is conducted by TU Wien in cooperation with Danube University Krems. While Danube University Krems offers ten years' experience in post-graduate management education, TU Wien provides special expertise in business education for engineering and natural science majors.

Contents: 1st academic year

The first-year program focuses on teaching economic basic knowledge and on processes and tools of general management:

  • Accounting & Controlling
  • Management Science
  • Organizational Behavior & Human Resource Management
  • Marketing & Competition Strategy
  • Corporate Finance
  • European and International Business Law
  • Managerial Economics
  • Communication Skills & Social Competence

Contents: 2nd academic year

You can individually organize the third semester according to your needs and interests and choose modules from the 4 specialization options stated below (25 ECTS in total). For example, you may combine classes in Vienna and Krems with one study abroad (depending on availability). The fourth semester is dedicated to writing a practice-oriented master thesis.

1 Specialization in Vienna & Krems

The third semester is held in English. Based on the first year, the specialization builds upon the general management knowledge. Currently, the contents consist of topics in Financial Management, Strategic Management, Human Resource Management, Entrepreneurship and Advanced Business Planning. The contents of the specialization modules are regularly adapted according to the changing requirements of managers.

2 Specialization at a Partner University abroad

In the second year, students have the opportunity to study for one semester at the renowned Baruch College in New York City. The students will be fully immersed in the host university program during their stay. Expenses for travelling and accommodation are not included in the MBA program fee.

3 Study Trip Abroad (Duration: 1 week – 10 days)

Destinations are adapted each year, depending on availability and included 2017 f.x.:

  • Study Trip to Colorado (Subject: Authentic Leadership & Business Ethics)
  • Study Trip to Vancouver (Subject: Venture Capital, Merger & Acquisition)
  • Study Trip to Lisbon (Subject: Excelling in Leadership)
  • Study Trip to Stanford (Subject: Entrepreneurship & Innovation)

Target Group

For most recent graduates, leadership and assuming management responsibilities are goals and challenges at the same time. Executives in general management positions are responsible for budgets; they must understand competition, organizational issues and human resources - all of which requires sound business education in addition to professional studies. The General Management MBA program offers the possibility of acquiring basic business, legal and social knowledge while preparing for a career in management.

Structure and content

The full Master’s course for each degree outcome is divided into four taught modules containing 12 subject areas or topics; two Foundation modules, two Advanced modules and a single Research Project module. The overall course is divided into three parts:

- Foundation modules
The Foundation modules are taught between September and December. There are six compulsory topics of study within two taught modules, taken consecutively, giving instruction in basic aquaculture concepts and skills. Successful completion of both Foundation modules will qualify you for a Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Aquaculture.

- Advanced modules
The two Advanced modules consisting of six compulsory topics of study are taught between January and April. Successful completion of the advanced modules, subsequent to the Foundation modules, will qualify you for a Postgraduate Diploma in Aquatic Pathobiology.

- Research Project module
The Research Project module is normally completed between April and August, and involves research in many areas of aquatic animal health. These projects mostly laboratory based and often result in peer reviewed publications. Successful completion of the module, subsequent to foundation and advanced modules, will qualify you for an MSc in Aquatic Veterinary Studies.

Delivery and assessment

The course is delivered through a variety of formats including lectures, practical classes, seminars, field visits and directed study. Assessment consists of a number of assignments in a range of formats. The Research Project is graded on activities undertaken during the project, the thesis and a presentation you make in front of your peers, supervisors and examiners. The dissertation is examined by internal and external examiners.

Why Stirling?

REF2014
In REF2014 Stirling was placed 6th in Scotland and 45th in the UK with almost three quarters of research activity rated either world-leading or internationally excellent.

Rating

The Institute of Aquaculture, with a rating of 2.45 in the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), was graded the top aquaculture department in the UK.

Strengths

The degree has been taught for almost 40 years and only one of its kind. It gives students the unique opportunity to study the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of aquatic animal diseases in cultured organisms in one of the top institutions of the world.

Career opportunities

The course has run for almost 40 years and has trained over 200 students (in combination with Aquatic Pathobiology) from all over the world. It equips you with expertise applicable to a wide range of potential careers. Our graduates generally find employment in their area of interest, and the world employment market in the area of aquatic animal health remains buoyant.
The course provides a natural career progression for most candidates and a conversion course for others wishing to enter the field. It also provides training for those who wish to pursue a PhD, especially in aquaculture, aquatic health, fisheries and aquatic resources management.

The varying and increasingly complex nature of the construction industry has led to a demand for professionals with the skills to analyse, manage and solve intricate problems that often arise on major projects. Designed to address this demand, this industry-accredited, part-time course is particularly suitable if you have an interest in the commercial aspects of the construction industry and would like the confidence to operate in the challenging environment of contractual arrangements. This specialised course is more suitable to applicants with a number of years of work experience in the construction industry.

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which includes the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers, under licence from the Engineering Council, as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng(Hons) undergraduate first degree.

Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

What will you study?

You will study the English legal systems and examine in detail the forms of contract in common use. You will gain an understanding of how design and construction work is priced and how to control these costs. You will learn how to analyse the rights and liabilities of the parties involved in the construction process, and how to manage dispute resolution. You will also develop a commercial awareness of inter-company relationships, as well as gaining a working knowledge of modern project management and risk management techniques in controlling construction and design work.
