Double Masters – Double Excellence

The Double Masters Programme in Health Economics provides highly qualified students with the opportunity to profit from the first class expertise of two universities. Participants study at each university for one year and graduate with two Master's degrees from these renowned institutions: The Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences, University of Cologne, and the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, Maastricht University.

Health Economics is an interdisciplinary science in-between economics and medicine. The Double Masters Programme in Health Economics has a strong focus on innovation in the healthcare sector and on current and future healthcare challenges.

The Double Masters Programme prepares students for responsible management positions in the public and private health care sector. Students develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the management of the health care sector and gain in-depth knowledge of health economics and innovation in healthcare, together with strong intercultural competencies. Upon completion of this programme, graduates will be able to apply economic concepts to medical questions and actively address challenges of today's complex and rapidly changing healthcare sector.

Holding a German and a Dutch Master's degree, the graduates will have excellent perspectives on the European and the international labour market.

Please note that the Double Master is a consecutive programme, i.e. you need for application a Bachelor (or equivalent) with strong proficiency in Business Administration, Management Studies or Health Economics (60 ECTS). Furthermore, a minimum of 15 ECTS in the field of medicine and further 18 ECTS in the methods of the Health Economics are required. Unfortunately, University of Cologne's admission rules do not leave room for substituting work experience for credits. Please take a look at your transcript and verify that you meet the above mentioned criteria. Moreover, please bear in mind that the TOEFL/IELTS/etc. are indispensable requirements for an application and have to be submitted until the application deadline. More information on the accepted language certificates can be found here: https://www.wiso.uni-koeln.de/en/studies/application/application-procedure-for-masters-programmes/language-skills/

The Double Masters Programme provides excellent students with the opportunity to obtain two Master's degrees from two top-ranked universities in only two years. Students study the first year in Cologne; the second year is spent either at the Aalto University School of Business in Finland, the Louvain School of Management in Belgium, the Warsaw School of Economics in Poland or the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad.

Double Masters students have the unique advantage of being able to choose between the areas of specialisation of both universities, and enjoy an international environment which allows them to improve their intercultural competences and language skills. Each of the four programmes can be studied entirely in English and has its own focus, depending on the partner institution's specialisations and the different cultural and economic backgrounds of the partner universities' countries.

Please note that the Double Master is a consecutive programme, i.e. you need for application a Bachelor (or equivalent) in Business Administration or Economics with strong proficiency in Economics and quantitative methods.

The Double Masters Programme provides excellent students with the opportunity to obtain two Master's degrees from two top-ranked universities in only two years. Students of the Double Masters Programme study the first year of the Research Master's Programme in European Studies at Maastricht University. In the second year, they complete modules of the Master's Programme in Political Science at the University of Cologne. Students obtain the regular Master's degrees of both universities.

The programme provides a unique opportunity for students to study European politics from a truly European perspective with all the advantages both universities have to offer. In addition to regular seminars and lectures, the programme includes excursions, summer schools, guest lectures and career service events to boost your career.

Double degree students will be well prepared for the demands of an international labour market in European Studies, which increasingly expects graduates to have studied in more than one country. Graduates of the programme are particularly well qualified for a career in the institutions of the European Union, other areas of public administration or international companies. Furthermore, the research-oriented nature of the degree means that graduates are likely to move on to either doctoral research or to research-related work in think tanks, NGOs, etc.

About ITS (Monash)

On behalf of our entire staff and students, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Institute of Transport Studies (ITS Monash) at Monash University.

ITS (Monash) has a long and proud history in Monash University and Australia. The transport group at Monash was established in 1969. The Institute of Transport Studies was established in 1995 as the Key National Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Research in Transport Management, recognised by the Australian Government (a joint venture between The University of Sydney and Monash University). For more than four decades the transport group has played a crucial role in the transport field through fundamental, applied and industry-relevant research and education. Through our excellent education programs we continue to educate transportation leaders for industry, government and academia.

At ITS (Monash), we recognise that the next important challenge and opportunity will present itself through availability of live data and low-priced technology to travellers. There will be soon over 3 billion people with connected devices and more than 210 billion sensors out there that will provide a once-in-generation opportunity to tackle issues of complex transport and urban mobility for modern cities. At ITS (Monash) we have aligned our research focus and efforts to take advantage of this new leap in mobility, opportunity to change the way we travel, create sustainable transport, and work toward more liveable cities.

HEC Paris’ Master in Management (MiM) is the international students’ gateway to the prestigious Grande Ecole program and a fantastic world of opportunities. Read more
HEC Paris’ Master in Management (MiM) is the international students’ gateway to the prestigious Grande Ecole program and a fantastic world of opportunities.

WORLD-CLASS STUDENT BODY

The Grande Ecole program is designed for high potential students from all backgrounds with little or no professional experience, driven to become influential leaders in tomorrow’s world.

Our 2014 intake included students from more than 40 nationalities, with half coming from outside Europe - http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/Grande-Ecole/Master-in-Management/Meet-the-Students#block-21437

A UNIQUE TWO-PHASE CURRICULUM TO BOOST YOUR CAREER

The Grande Ecole curriculum (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/Grande-Ecole/Master-in-Management/Program-Details) is divided into a generalist phase and a specialization phase. The first phase concentrates on business fundamentals while the second one focuses on acquiring expertise around the professional goals of the student. The nature of the specialization determines the Master’s degree that the student will finally receive: Management, Management & Business Law, Management and Public Affairs…

This unique curriculum structure enables students to acquire both an excellent grounding in general management and an expertise in a specific field. We firmly believe this combination is the key success factor in training future leaders and making a lasting impact on the careers of our students. In fact, our graduates combine the rare ability to grasp the ‘global picture’ in all situations and a deep understanding that only experts can truly reach.

The program consists of:

> in M1: mandatory foundation courses in general management, electives and a managerial behavior seminar
> in M2: a specialization, an optional certificate and an in-depth research paper.

Moreover, the Grande Ecole program perfectly balances the development of practical leadership and professional skills with the more theoretical requirements, such as a final research paper within the specialization. Students are trained to become decision-makers while focusing on the academic specialization that they choose in light of their professional goals. With the diversity of courses and specializations available, students can develop expertise in several areas of business administration, shape their career plans, all while preparing their entry into the business world through company internships.

A WIDE RANGE OF SPECIALIZATIONS

In M2, students have access to a wide range of specializations, which then determine the Master’s degree that the student will finally receive:

> Master in Management: Strategy, Finance, Marketing, Financial Economics, Economics, Entrepreneurship, etc.
> Master in Public Affairs: Public Policy, International Relations, Diplomacy
> Master in Business Law
> Master in Sustainability and Social Innovation
> Master in Journalism (taught in French only)
> Master in Media, Arts & Creation (taught in French only)
> Master in Cognitive Sciences (with ENS Ulm)

The HEC Paris / Georgetown University Law Center (https://www.law.georgetown.edu/) Double Degree Program in Management and Business Law is a unique degree program with an interdisciplinary methodology, exploring the connections that exist between business and legal practice.

The dual nature of the program intends to meet the ever-present demand for legal professionals with a comprehensive knowledge and awareness of management principles.

STUDY IN TWO GLOBALLY-RECOGNIZED INSTITUTIONS

Since 1870, Georgetown Law has been an innovator in legal education. Georgetown boasts one of the largest full-time faculties (http://www.law.georgetown.edu/faculty/) in the world, filled with dedicated scholars and teachers who have expertise in a variety of practice settings as well as the classroom. Twenty-three of their professors have served as U.S. Supreme Court clerks and 39 have advanced degrees in other disciplines. In 2015, Georgetown’s law school was placed 24th in the FT global rankings (http://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/university-subject-rankings/2015/law-legal-studies#sorting=rank+region=+country=+faculty=+stars=false+search=)

The HEC Paris MSc in International Finance (MIF) program caters for highly-motivated top achieving graduates looking to succeed in a career in finance and consulting. Read more
The HEC Paris MSc in International Finance (MIF) program caters for highly-motivated top achieving graduates looking to succeed in a career in finance and consulting. The program has a strong analytical focus yet is accessible from either business and finance (business track) or economics, math, physics, engineering (accelerated track) backgrounds.

FLEXIBLE CURRICULUM

A ‘tailor-designing’ approach towards education is at the core of how we design programs at HEC Paris. This shows in at least two respects of the HEC Paris MSc International Finance curriculum (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Program-Details#block-21071):

> What courses you take during the first semester depends on what you have done before joining HEC Paris. If you have already covered basic financial accounting, investment theory and corporate finance, you will start finance classes at advanced level (business track). If you have not done so, you will start at a more basic level but have significantly more class hours at an accelerated pace so as to enable you to cover the same material at the end (accelerated track)
> The second semester is comprised of more than 30 electives (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Program-Details#block-34760), which you can choose as you see fit: you are free to choose all corporate finance classes, all capital markets or a mix of the two. You may also decide to choose an elective about corporate strategy or macroeconomics.

BALANCE BETWEEN THEORY AND PRACTICE

The number of hours spent in the classroom by HEC MIF graduates significantly exceeds the international standards. Around half of that time will be spent in front of world class researchers (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Program-Details#block-21085), teaching you state-of-the-art knowledge. The other half will be spent in front of top-notch practitioners. The latter is one of many ways in which the learning experience at HEC Paris is different. The reason why we feel it is important to complement theoretical teaching by top researchers with practitioners lectures is that we have learned it is giving our graduates a small "extra edge" compared to graduates of other institutions. The more competitive the environment you are in, the more important having this extra edge is.

STRONG AND COHESIVE PEER GROUP

Who your peers are matters: for the quality of your learning experience, for the perception by potential employers and for the value of your network after you graduate. This is why academic performance is at the top of our admission criteria. But academic performance is not enough: smart, ambitious individuals will underperform if they do not cooperate. We strongly emphasize group cohesion and encourage it any way we can. For instance:

> Honours are granted on the basis of absolute GPA and not class percentile so as to make sure that no HEC MIF student can benefit from underperformance by one of his or her classmates
> A study trip is organized the 3rd week of the program with all HEC finance students participating and interaction for both professional and non-professional activities

LIFE LONG TIES

We are proud of the fact that ties built on campus with both professors and peers carry on after students graduate and become alumni. Alumni get directly involved in coaching the "new generation" of HEC MIF students and making sure they achieve the same success as past students. A few examples:

> Career and job training workshops the first week of the program - http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Career-Paths#block-35012
> More than 250 participants in the Thursday night formal networking event of the 2014 London study trip… and many more at the less formal Friday night HEC Finance pub crawl: a unique opportunity to get privilegded access to young professionals from bulge bracket banks!
> Finance event organized the 4th week of September

INTERNATIONAL DIVERSITY

With 29 different nationalities making up the class of 2014 (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Meet-the-Students#block-21087), the International Finance program is enriching on a cultural level as well. Working with so many different nationalities can be highly educational and rewarding and is a true highlight of the program for many. London is the main hub for HEC MIF graduates in terms of placement even though we also have alumni working in Continental Europe, Asia, Americas, and Middle East.

A CORE OF COMMON VALUES

Last but not least, we believe that values matter. Given various unsavory episodes during the crisis, this is even more important for a finance program than for any other program. Our values can be seen in a variety of different ways:

> How we select students: no matter how good or how strong your file is, if we catch you lying or cheating in any way during the admission process, you are out! No second chance…
> Ethics classes: in collaboration with the CFA Institute (the HEC MIF is a CFA partner program https://www.cfainstitute.org/Pages/index.aspx), we included an ethics seminar and an ethics class in our curriculum years before the crisis started.

A WORLD-RENOWNED PROGRAM

The Financial Times (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2015) has ranked the HEC Paris MSc International Finance number one pre-experience global master in finance worldwide in 2016 and for the sixth consecutive year (see the article http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/News/2016-06-20-HEC-Paris-Masters-in-Finance-ranked-number-1-worldwide-by-the-Financial-Times).

The choice of 9 certificates (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-Sustainability-and-Social-Innovation/Program-Details#block-35384) means that students can specialize in a specific area of interest, or gain knowledge of another related area.

Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused Masters degree that will enhance your employability? This two-year course develops skills in business and international management while also offering a pathway in marketing.

The first year is the same as MSc Business with International Management. You’ll then undertake a second year that develops the ‘Marketing’ pathway. Specialist modules will cover advertising and marketing communications strategy as well as interactive and relationship marketing.

You’ll develop your research skills through a Masters dissertation or an investigative consultancy project related to an issue faced by a real client. You’ll also explore contemporary issues in management research.

There is no requirement to have studied business, international management or marketing at undergraduate level.

The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Learn From The Best

Newcastle Business School has a global reputation for delivering some of the best business management education in the UK. We are part of an elite group of less than 1% of business schools worldwide with double accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in business and accounting.

Our staff are actively pushing at the frontiers of knowledge and generating new concepts and insights. Over 40% of our publication outputs and 60% of our impact case studies have been assessed as internationally excellent or world leading. The quality of our research, teaching and engagement with business were among the factors that led to Newcastle Business School being named ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Teaching And Assessment

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops. As this is a Masters course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection.

Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment is based on course work and our methods will include essays, reports, group work, presentations, and the master’s dissertation or consultancy project.

Learning Environment

Newcastle Business School provides first-class teaching in a world-class environment. From social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional. The University’s library was ranked #2 in the UK in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for 2015.

The University has also invested heavily in IT labs and facilities. You’ll use software such as ARIS Express Business Process Modelling, various SAS applications, Microsoft Project, specialist decision-making software, and Google Analytics.

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is embedded throughout the course with tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists that will guide your preparation for seminars and independent research. Our use of lecture capture software will help you revise challenging material.

There will be plenty of opportunities to put your learning into practice. The Student Engagement Centre promotes all types of experiential learning including volunteering, internships and placements. The Business Clinic enables our students to participate in a ‘consultancy firm’ to provide advice for our region’s businesses.

Research-Rich Learning

As a Masters student you’ll develop your research skills to a new and higher level. Your research supervisor will help you submit a proposal for your Masters dissertation or consultancy project and then discuss its development through to completion in the final semester.

If you decide on a Masters consultancy project, rather than a dissertation, you’ll still undertake primary and desk research. Through your reading, reflection and research, you’ll be expected to show a deep understanding of the issues that are involved in the client brief.

Throughout your course you’ll be an active participant in the ongoing research agenda that’s at the heart of Newcastle Business School. With conferences and research events regularly taking place, and with staff discussing their own research as it relates to the topics you’ll study, there’s a strong emphasis on engaging in up-to-date enquiry-based learning.

Give Your Career An Edge

The course includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.

A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

The option of a Masters consultancy project, as an alternative to the traditional dissertation, can be an excellent vehicle for broadening your experience and building your track record.

In the second year of the course you’ll be extending your knowledge of marketing through specialist modules whose titles are ‘Advertising and Marketing Communications Strategy’ and ‘Advanced Interactive and Relationship Marketing’. You’ll also study a further module ‘Contemporary Issues in Management Research’.

A Masters course that takes two years, instead of just one, will carry particular weight with employers. They’ll understand that you’ll have a deeper understanding of topics as well as more experience.

The course fees are split evenly between year 1 and year 2. In addition, while you can only work twenty hours per week during term time, you can use the extra vacation periods to travel or work full time and help fund your time in the UK.

Your Future

Our graduates typically go into professional and graduate management positions and, by the end of the course, you’ll be well-equipped to follow them. Your knowledge and skills, including your specialisms in international management and marketing, will help you turn good businesses into great ones.

Some employers require completion of a two-year Masters and this course will meet their requirement.

If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a Masters graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
