International Relations as a discipline is almost a century old. About its origins different interpretations exist, but in general IR emerged in response to the consequences of power politics in Europe, culminating in the First World War, and in response to specific research questions within Political Science. Read more
International Relations as a discipline is almost a century old. About its origins different interpretations exist, but in general IR emerged in response to the consequences of power politics in Europe, culminating in the First World War, and in response to specific research questions within Political Science. IR in Europe started as an interdisciplinary project, IR in Groningen still follows this tradition.

International Relations and International Organization, a specialization of the Master International Relations, offers a comprehensive study in theory and practice. Theretofore, IRIO uses a 'self-service' model. Besides the mandatory course on advanced theory and the master thesis, you can select from specialized capita and research seminars in four essential areas of Internationals Relations: International Security, International Political Economy, European Integration, Global Governance and East Asian Studies. Moreover, to prepare for an international career you can organize an internship at a public or private organization in the field of international relations, where you can apply your knowledge and skills in a 'real-time' environment.

Why in Groningen?

The Master's specialization IRIO offers: (a) flexibility in the selection of courses, enabling students to design a study programme tailored to their needs and interests; (b) a research-led and policy-oriented curriculum taught by a committed staff; (c) reserves room for a career-oriented internship that excellently prepares graduates for the labour market and (d) provides an excellent preparation for a variety of positions related to the broad field of international relations.

Job perspectives

The Master's specialization is broad in scope and gives students a solid foundation in international relations. There is consequently a wide range of employment opportunities for International Relations graduates. The most obvious profession is a policy advisor, but you could also become a researcher, lobbyist, diplomat, or PR officer. You can work in international business, non-profit or government organizations, in the media, and at a university or a private research institute.

Research International Relations and International Organization

Research conducted within the Department of International Relations and International Organization takes mostly place within the context of one of the four other specializations: Global Governance, International Security, European Integration and International Political Economy. We kindly direct you to those sites to get an impression of the research activities of the Department.

Columbia University’s new Master of Science in Applied Analytics empowers you to assess the application of an organization’s data and analytics. You will learn how to define and frame analytical problems, how to decide which data are collected and what analyses should be performed, and how to communicate and work with analysts on solutions that are technically sound as well as valuable to the organization. Available part-time and full-time, the program is anchored by three week-long courses on Columbia’s campus in New York City that feature networking, group exercises, and guest lecturers. Between these courses, you will complete additional coursework on campus or online through a networked learning platform. For your final capstone project, you will apply your knowledge to develop a real-world analytics project sponsored by a leading organization.

Program Structure

The program consists of required courses in two core areas. The Leadership, Management, and Communication Core develops an enterprise-wide perspective on data and the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to inspire, create, and foster an analytical culture within an organization. The Applied Analytics Core develops a broad understanding of the frameworks for the use of data to inform real-life business problems from data collection to application in decision-making. This core introduces you to the methods and range of tools and systems that organizations use to conceptualize, collect, manage, and analyze data to produce information to make it actionable across their enterprise.
For your elective study, you will align the foundational skills you've developed in the two core areas with three courses you choose that are pertinent to your academic and professional goals. Elective courses in a wide range of subjects, including business, finance, marketing, information visualization, collaboration, communication, and negotiation, let you obtain in-depth knowledge in a particular industry or functional area within an organization.
Completing your Integrated Capstone Project, you will apply what you have learned in the two core components to a real-world analytics project sponsored by a leading organization.
Students requiring an F1 visa must enroll full-time (12 credits) and study on campus. Students on an F1 visa are permitted to complete no more than one online class each semester. Students not on an F1 visa have the flexibility to enroll in courses online or on-campus. For these students, if desired, 68% of the coursework can be completed online. The program offers one core course each semester in a block week format at a Columbia University location in New York City which reduces the amount of time on campus for students located outside the New York metropolitan area.

The MBA in Executive Management at Royal Roads University is designed for working professionals, by working professionals. Read more
The MBA in Executive Management at Royal Roads University is designed for working professionals, by working professionals. We’ve used our experience in the industry to create a program that gives you the solid foundation required of today’s business leaders, as well as the opportunity to put your learning to work through hands-on practice. No matter what your career aspirations are, you’ll be able to use the tools and techniques found in your program to move your organization forward.

Who It's For

Experienced managers and business leaders who are looking for versatility and customization of their MBA experience. The program builds on each student’s current knowledge and experience to develop the strategic skills business growth depends upon, and provides a broad understanding of critical issues in management leadership. It also allows students to select electives in sustainability, innovation or coaching for an individualized MBA experience that aligns with their career goals.

The Royal Roads University Learning Model

At Royal Roads University, we use a cohort learning model for many of our programs, including the MBA. Our unique learning model requires you to work with your team, sharing personal experiences and diverse perspectives to develop unique solutions to projects and challenges. Working together ensures that everyone contributes to and benefits from the program, and the connections you create through our cohort environment form a powerful network of support you can turn to during your program and after graduation.

An Investment in Education

The MBA program at Royal Roads University is challenging and requires compromises between you and your family, friends, and employers. Your cohort depends on you to contribute and participate in group projects and assignments, and you’ll need to allocate enough time to manage your assigned readings and individual tasks. It’s important to discuss these requirements with the important people in your life, so you can plan out mutually acceptable arrangements before you start your program. The program is challenging, but the experience is invaluable.

Team-Based Learning

Your program will include students from across Canada as well as internationally; typically about 40 years old with 15 or more years of professional experience. One of the biggest benefits of this mixture of personal and professional experience is the opportunities created by developing your professional network. You can expand your network around the globe, finding access to resources outside of what your competition can discover. And that’s a great way to build your business and professional exposure.

Organizational Management Project

The Organizational Management Project (OMP) is the major integrative learning activity of the MBA Program, and offers a rich learning opportunity through the application of theory to a real-world situation. By applying theory to a real world-situation, completion of the OMP enhances the skills of the learner and provides a valuable contribution to the client or host organization.

More specifically, in the OMP, learners will examine a management problem, conduct academic and best case research, analyze options, and provide recommendations and a high-level implementation plan in a final report for the client or host organization. The management problem to be researched and analyzed is identified in collaboration with an organization. MBA learners may choose to conduct their OMP with an external organization, or it can be conducted within a learner’s own workplace provided the project is not related to the learner’s own position and does not involve his/her direct reports. The MBA Program Office will also work with learners to identify potential projects with corporate or not-for-profit organizations that have indicated their interest in being involved with our program in this capacity.

Role andPurposes

This course contributes to the achievement of 3 learning goals (LG) mentioned below. For the purpose of accomplishment of these objectives, this course provides basic understandings and skills in the Organizational Behavior (OB) field. We learn how we can effectively manage modern organizations and “people” inside. Organizations we deal with are profit-seeking corporations, public agencies, and all other forms of non-profit bodies, given they consider their activities as work, not hobby or mere socializing. What kind of knowledge and skills are required to manage an organization, which is consisted of a few, or thousands, of people? First, we need to be able to explain behaviors of various individuals and groups—which are considered as complex of individuals—in orderly way. Next, we need to be able to analyze and predict the individual and group behaviors. Only after overcoming these challenges we will be capable of managing, or leading, the entire organization.
The terms such as management or leadership should be used carefully, since they evoke very diverse and heterogeneous implications among people. As we proceed with the classes, we will gradually clarify what we mean by managing and leading organization, under the context of modern society.

Course Learning Goals

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
(1) Demonstrate understanding of leadership concepts and practices (LO3-1)
(a) Engagement in active listening and conduct of 2-way, or multilateral conversation
(b) Making constructive suggestions to deepen the group discussion
(c) Exercising necessary leadership or followership behavior in the group discussion when needed

Course Description

Upon successful completion of this course, you will have comprehensive understandings about the nature of working people’s mind, the various phenomena which occurs under the situation of group work, and the mechanism of organizational structure. Also, you will be better prepared to lead your organization, either small or large, under solid foundations of OB theories and concepts. Cases are designed so that you will be gradually exposed to various simulated experiences which serve as anchors of your managerial behaviors in the future career.
Good understanding of Organizational Behavior is essential for ANY roles you assume upon graduation, as far as you work with other people. Being equipped with OB knowledge, you will be more capable of handling “people-related” issues in organizations.

Global public health has become a subject of study across several disciplines, including biomedicine, political economy, sociology and anthropology, epidemiology and statistics, health services research, and policy studies. Law has also been amongst these, but has rarely been the focus of dedicated study in the context of global public health. Yet legal frameworks and instruments continue to evolve and to shape and influence both the content and delivery of standards and policy goals.

This programme analyses the key international organisations and legal instruments that influence national public health policies. It critically examines the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) and key international conventions and protocols. This programme will appeal to all those with an involvement in health policy and health systems, including medical practitioners, civil servants, lawyers, social and political scientists, and NGO workers, amongst others. It will interest policy makers who want to understand the bigger picture about global health and will feature prominent key speakers from the likes of WHO, WTO, and the medical profession.

On completion of this course, students will have developed the skills and knowledge to work in health and public policy at local, national, and international level, and in governmental and international bodies and NGOs, or undertake further postgraduate research.

This programme will:

-Introduce students to key international frameworks and instruments in global health
-Analyse international legal processes and regimes which are leading to global standard-setting and influence over national public health policies.
-Focus on international legal instruments across human rights, trade, and environmental sectors that are particularly relevant for public health.
-Critically examine the World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization, and key international conventions and protocols.
-Incorporate global governance and global health governance, helping set the frame for how governance interfaces with the making of laws (and also regulatory regimes and treaties) and their enforcement or implementation.

Why study your MSc in Global Health, Law and Governance at Queen Mary?

This programme is a collaboration between the Schools of Medicine and Dentistry and Law. Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry is comprised of two world renowned teaching hospitals, St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London, which have made, and continue to make, an outstanding contribution to modern medicine. We were one of the top five in the UK for medicine, in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.

The School of Law at Queen Mary University of London has been ranked 3rd in the UK and 1st in London in the Guardian University Guide 2015 subject league tables.

Within the School of Law at Queen Mary, there are two partners, the Department of Law and the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS). The Department of Law was established in 1965 and covers the full spectrum of legal studies. The Centre for Commercial Law Studies focuses strongly on the global development of international commercial law.

The Global Public Health Unit combines the local and the global in a stimulating and challenging research and teaching environment – we have strong links to the NHS, local authorities, numerous third-sector organisations in east London, senior policymakers in the UK, and leading international figures in global health.

The MSc programmes study global health from a diverse multidisciplinary perspective, with teaching led by public health consultants, lawyers, sociologists, geographers, and economists.

You will learn on a truly multidisciplinary programme, which exposes you to a range of disciplines, giving you a genuinely broad education and a wide perspective. With this multidisciplinary approach, you will gain critical insight and applied skills necessary for management, persuasion, and advocacy.

We integrate different types of teaching delivery with a focus on small group seminars, so you will develop debating and discussion skills, and have plenty of contact with academics. We work from the local to the global – the Global Public Health Unit is based in Whitechapel in London's East End, and has close links to NHS organisations, local authorities, and the voluntary sector in one of London's most diverse and complex areas. We have collaborations with other universities and organisations from around the world to aid research, teaching, policy development, and community engagement.

We encourage students to get involved in both our local and international work.

The only MBA program in the Americas with community at its core; one that delivers advanced business knowledge and skills to make a difference in the local and global community.

Our one-of-a kind MBA in CED is designed for a new generation of leaders; for learners who aspire to be instruments of change in the public and corporate sectors and in not-for-profit organizations. Our MBA in CED offers a leading edge curriculum that includes all business subjects found in traditional MBA programs, with an emphasis on economic development, leadership, governance, and management of change. Specializing options include electives in Strategic Leadership, Peace Building, Public Administration, First Nations, Sustainability or International Business.

Accessible: Cape Breton University’s MBA in CED is flexible. It is open to those starting their careers and to experienced managers.
