The University of Winnipeg offers four joint masters programs in the areas of History, Religious Studies, Peace & Conflict Studies and Public Administration.

Background

The University of Winnipeg and The University of Manitoba established four joint masters programs. The resources of both universities were thus made available for graduate work to the Masters level in these disciplines. Students enrolling in a Joint Masters Program enjoy at both universities all the rights and privileges normally accorded to graduate students; two months before their expected date of graduation they shall declare in writing the university from which they wish to receive their degree.

As part of the agreement establishing these Joint Masters Programs, it was arranged that administrative aspects, e.g. admission, registration, etc. would be entirely in the hands of the Faculty of Graduate Studies at The University of Manitoba. All prospective graduate students must complete the official application for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba and consult with the Graduate Chair at The University of Winnipeg.

Public Administration

This Master's program is offered jointly by the Department of Political Science of The University of Winnipeg and the Department of Political Studies of The University of Manitoba. Unless otherwise specified by particular agreements attached to its creation, the program is governed by the general procedures and regulations devised by the two universities for Joint Masters Programs.

The objective the program is to provide students, both full- and part-time, with a sound knowledge of Public Administration. The approach is interdisciplinary, although courses in Political Science/Political Studies are emphasized. The core exposes all students to a common set of courses designed to encourage both innovative and integrative perspectives. The Public Administration emphasis allows interested students to obtain knowledge of both the theory and the practice of government organizations, including knowledge of the political, economic, social and other contexts in which they operate.

HEC Paris’ Master in Management (MiM) is the international students’ gateway to the prestigious Grande Ecole program, created in 1881, 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.

A Unique Two-Phase Curriculum to Boost Your Career

The Grande Ecole curriculum 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:

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

Moreover, the Grande Ecole program, created in 1881, 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 Specialisations

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, DiplomacyMaster in Business LawMaster in Sustainability and Social InnovationMaster in Journalism (taught in French only)Master in Media, Arts & Creation (taught in French only)Master in Cognitive Sciences (with ENS Ulm)

This Joint Degree between HEC Paris and Ecole Polytechnique will equip students with both the technical skills and the strategic mindset to lead successfully any business career requiring a strong expertise in Big Data.

Study in two globally-recognised Institutions

Ecole Polytechnique and HEC Paris are both world leading academic institutions, renowned for the quality of their degrees, faculties and research (see HEC rankings).

Their association within this Joint Degree represents the best Business/Engineering combination Europe could possibly offer, with extraordinary added value for the students who will follow this program in Data Science and Business.

Lead the digital transformation of the economy

Big data marks the beginning of a major transformation of the digital economy, which will significantly impact all industries. There are three main challenges to face:

  • Technological: dealing with the explosion of data by managing the spread of vast amounts of information that is often very disorganized (IP addresses, fingerprinting, website logs, static web or warehouse data, social media, etc.)
  • Scientific: replacing mass data with knowledge,i.e. developing the expertise that makes it possible to structure information, even out of tons of vague or corrupt data.
  • Economic: managing data both to control risks and benefit from the new opportunities they offer. On the one hand, it is absolutely vital to be able to control the flow of information, anticipate data leaks, keep the information secure and ensure privacy. On the other hand, it is also essential to come up with solutions capable of transforming this flow of data into economic results and, at the same time, discover new sources of value from the data.

Acquire the skills to make a difference in tomorrow's digital world

Exploiting this vast amount of data requires the following:

  • A mastery of the sophisticated mathematical techniques needed to extract the relevant information.
  • An advanced understanding of the fields where this knowledge can be applied in order to be in a position to interpret the analysis results and make strategic decisions.
  • A strong business mindset and an even stronger strategic expertise, to be able to fully benefit from the new opportunities involved with Big Data problematics and develop business solutions accordingly.
  • The ability to suggest and then decide on the choice of IT structures, the ability to follow major changes in IT systems, etc.

Therefore the program has three objectives:

  • To train students in data sciences which combines mathematic modelling, statistics, IT and visualization to convert masses of information into knowledge.
  • To give students the tools to understand the newest data distributing structures and large scale calculations to ease decision-making and guide them in their choices.
  • To form data ‘managers’ capable of exploiting the results from analysis to make strategic decisions at the heart of our changeable businesses.

Make the most of the worldwide networking and alumni power 

Students will benefit not only from the close ties that HEC Paris has developed with the business world but also those of Ecole Polytechnique, through various networking events, conferences and career fairs.

The HEC Alumni network alone, consists of more than 52,300 members in 127 countries.

Program details

The key aim of the teaching in this Joint Degree is to provide students with the tools needed to solve real problems, using structured and unstructured data masses, teaching them to ask the ‘right’ questions (both from statistics and ‘business’ perspectives), to use the appropriate mathematical and IT tools to answer these questions.

Students will be equipped to shift constantly from data to knowledge, from knowledge to strategic decision, and from strategic decision to operational business implementations.

All these shifts carry with them numerous challenges that each require an interdisciplinary approach involving mathematics, IT, business strategy, and management skills.

This joint masters programme offers a unique international and interlinguistic orientation in current philosophical work. The course is taught by leading figures in the field of contemporary European philosophy, based at two of its most significant and productive institutions. Full-time students spend the autumn semester at Kingston's Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), and the spring semester at the University of Paris 8 (Saint-Denis).

As a joint European programme, this MA is longer than a standard British MA. Taken over 18 months (from September to the following March), it involves a more specialised study and a more extensive MA dissertation.
-In preparation for the term in Paris, you can take advantage of free French language tuition in the autumn term through our Kingston Language Scheme.
-You will benefit from high levels of staff contact from versatile and internationally recognised teaching staff with a range of interests.
-The CRMEP is arguably the UK's most stimulating and prestigious provider of MA teaching in the field. The philosophy department at Paris 8 was established by Michel Foucault in the aftermath of May 1968 and was shaped by many of the thinkers (Deleuze, Rancière, Badiou, etc) who studied there. Today, Paris 8 remains lively, mindful of its legacy and marked by a distinctive political culture.

What will you study?

In the autumn term, which is taught at Kingston, you will study the Contemporary European Philosophies core module and choose an option module from the full range of philosophy courses offered at Kingston University. In the spring term, which is taught in Paris, you will study modules chosen from those offered by the philosophy department at Paris 8 (including two modules offered by a visiting member of Kingston's CRMEP). You will also take a 'special study' module, based on close engagement with a major contemporary thinker of your choice.

You can write your dissertation in London or Paris, in English or French. Preparation of the dissertation lasts around eight months and involves research skills workshops, group tutorials and individual supervision.

Assessment

Short exercises, essays, independent study, research skills workshops, and a 20,000-word dissertation.

Why this course?

In today’s unpredictable financial markets, strategic financial decisions and policies frequently need to be considered in relation to various legal requirements and constraints.

Business people increasingly need to have an understanding of the financial and accounting principles which underpin and inform legal regulation of financial institutions, financial instruments and financial markets.

Consequently, finance graduates who also have a strong legal knowledge, will be very attractive to a range of financial institutions and other organisations, both in the UK and overseas.

This joint masters programme between the Department of Accounting & Finance and the Law School addresses this skills gap in the global market by introducing students to both the legal aspects of regulation of international finance as well as to principles of accounting and finance.

You’ll study

The programme comprises both core and optional classes in finance and law.

It aims to provide students with a number of key learning outcomes:

1. To understand the core elements of financial theory and corporate financial theory.*
2. To understand key elements in financial law and regulation including the private law in respect of the structuring of individual transactions and the public law relevant to regulation of financial markets and institutions from the perspective of UK, EU and international law.*

* Students will have the option of developing skills in various specialist areas in finance or business and commercial law.

The programme also facilitates the development of various cognitive skills and non-subject specific skills.

You'll learn the ability to:
-reason systematically
-critically analyse and evaluate arguments
-utilise quantitative techniques
-work on an independent and group basis
-structure and resolve problems
-take decisions in complex situations
-exercise judgement in taking decisions in the absence of complete information and understanding
-use software packages; and, communicate and present ideas effectively

Major projects

Students are required to complete two academic research projects – one in finance and one in law.
