About the course

Our approach to teaching is innovative. Instead of sitting in a lecture theatre, you’ll work on solutions to specific problems. This helps you develop the skills and the confidence you need. You’ll study alongside other health care professionals in a health care setting.

You’ll learn how to critically evaluate current research, policies and practice. By linking theory to practice, you’ll develop a range of clinical skills and knowledge appropriate for professional registration as an adult nurse.

The world needs health professionals

And we’re dedicated to educating them. We have strong links with other health departments at the University, including the School for Health and Related Research (ScHARR), the Department of Sociological Studies, the Medical School and the Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth.

The school is close to the central University campus, opposite the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. You’ll be at the heart of student life with West Street, Broomhill and the best students’ union in the country on your doorstep.

We teach the skills that matter

Because we work closely with our partners in health and social care, your course will equip you with the skills employers are looking for. All our courses are research-led, shaped by local, national and international policy. They’re designed to be flexible, to meet the demands of a rapidly changing work environment.

We teach the skills you need to establish research and education initiatives in health and social care wherever in the world you are needed. Through our partnerships with other organisations, you’ll get the chance to network and make useful contacts.

Course content

The course is 50 per cent theory and 50 per cent practice, based on four core units of study: Foundations in Health and Nursing; Patients with Acute and Short-Term Needs; Patients with Long-Term Conditions and Complex Needs; Transitions to Practice: managing and organising care.

Teaching and learning

This course uses an innovative problem- based learning strategy to help you think about real clinical practice scenarios. A strong emphasis on cooperative learning helps you manage unfamiliar situations, make reasoned decisions, adapt to change, and plan your future learning. It’s a realistic and challenging preparation for registration.

Assessment

You’re assessed on theory and practice. In practice, you’ll need to achieve a number of competencies by the end of each unit, assessed by your clinical mentor. Your theoretical knowledge is assessed by written assignments, case studies, poster presentations and exams.

Master's specialisation in Business Analysis and Modelling

The Master's specialisation in Business Analysis and Modelling focuses on two aspects of managerial decision making:
1. The individual and social biases and heuristics leading to suboptimal or even low quality decisions.
2. Interventions aiming at improving managerial decision making (group decision support).

This specialisation shares the application of formal methods and modelling with the Operations Research and Management Science departments of other economic and business administration programmes . However, consistent with the Nijmegen research profile, it looks at (strategic) decision making from the point of view of the ‘Responsible Organisation,' focusing not only on the analytical aspect, but also on the social aspects of decision making.
Students will be trained both in analysing complex problems as well as facilitation skills needed to intervene effectively in decision making processes.

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

Non Dutch Students

For the Master's programme Business Administration, the admission requirements for students with a non-Dutch diploma are:
- An academic Bachelor's degree in Business Administration
- English language proficiency

Career prospects

Most of the students in the BAM specialisation and in the two-year European Masters in System Dynamics (of which BAM is the Nijmegen component) will find jobs at advisory bureaus or the strategic planning departments of large companies.

Our research in this field

- Theory and action-based learning
This programme is closely associated with the research carried out within the Institute of Management Research, where the focus is on research into relationship management, institutional dynamics, decision making and innovative management. You will become familiar with both the theoretical and practical aspects of your special subject. The programme combines a thorough training in methodology with action-based learning: you apply the theory you have learned to concrete cases and learn to develop appropriate solutions. And, in our Visa Skills Lab, students use computers to make scenario analyses and simulate decision-making processes within organisations.

- Truly international
The education and research training we provide are internationally oriented. Our students have the opportunity to take part in a Master’s level project on European Human Resource Management, a cooperative venture among six leading European business schools and universities.

- An academic Bachelor's degree in Business Administration

Master Blenders, Mercedes Benz, Bol, and FrieslandCampina. In addition, many of our students starts their own business.

Our approach to this field

The marketing program at Nijmegen School of Management has three general objectives. First, it aims to train you to become an academic marketing specialist. ‘Academic’ refers to the fact that, you know when and how to use marketing theories, insights and tools as a marketing manager, consultant or researcher. It implies you will be able to think at a conceptual level about and to critically reflect on marketing theories, situations and your own way of working. Our teaching is characterised by a strong emphasis on translating theory into practices, which will help you in becoming more sensitive to how to apply your knowledge.

Second, the marketing program aims to give you an understanding of how marketing relates to other business disciplines. We strongly believe that marketing is not an island and that effective marketing requires establishing good relationships with other functions within a firm.

Third, the marketing program aims to stimulate you to become a responsible marketing professional, someone who not only is interested in short-term profits, but above all in the long-term well-being of all stakeholders.
