The MSc in Cybersecurity seeks to address the increasing demand in cybersecurity related domains in both academic vocational qualifications and projection for an increased shortage of cybersecurity professionals in the industry.

The programme is delivered by a dedicated team of cybersecurity experts and active researchers in the area and gives also the opportunity to acquire certain units from the programme as dedicated credit-based short courses outside the normal MSc route.

Using cutting edge and leading teaching and training techniques the course helps the candidates to realise the unique complexity and challenges associated with cybersecurity in a highly dynamic and constantly evolving threat landscape in a blended programme that amalgamates both management and hands-on skills required by cybersecurity professionals.

The curriculum gives you skills that are valuable for a career within Information Security but it is also relevant for a much wider range of applications. The diverse skillset around management of security as delivered in the course will equip you with a meaningful GRC knowledge and relevant experience to excel your career prospects. This is quite prominent due to the problem recruiters have to get hold off security managers with these skills.

The systematic application of teaching and learning methods with the GIS goals and clear references made to the University’s employability framework should further help students to develop their career prospects throughout the programme.

Interactive sessions in the form of demos will also be delivered by the teaching staff and guest speakers to further leverage understanding and stimulate attention towards relevant and pragmatic issues in the area.

Conflict resolution professionals work in a range of fields, including business, law, education, healthcare, and government. They act as arbitrators, mediators, facilitators, ombudsmen, and counselors. They must understand the root causes and dynamics of conflict and how to resolve disputes through reasoned negotiation.

Columbia’s master’s program in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution, which can be completed on a part-time or full-time basis, combines theory and applied training to prepare students to develop practical models for negotiating and resolving disputes among parties with differing objectives and desires. This graduate program is part of a rich history of conflict resolution at Columbia University.

The graduate program’s training philosophy is grounded in a commitment to interactive, dialogue-based methods of managing and resolving conflict. The focus is on building common ground, establishing dialogue, applying practical skills, ensuring representation and recognition, and forging relationships.

The program trains students to:

Adopt a mindset that is self-aware and sensitive to diverse populations of people in various settings
Consider alternative perspectives from differing worldviews
Apply sound conflict analysis models, tools and processes
Understand system dynamics and complexity of issues and actors
Develop a reflective practice of learning
Work toward reaching constructive outcomes through the use of collaborative processes
Use theory to inform their understanding, and apply pragmatic approaches to resolving conflicts

Curriculum

The curriculum emphasizes a pragmatic approach to resolving conflicts that arise in human resource management, community and labor organization, education and health administration, and law and business. Through examination of theory and practical methodology, the program focuses on constructive communication, ethical understanding, cultural awareness and sensitivity, counseling, and resolving conflicts in ways that are favorable for all parties.

The program includes four core courses that ground students in the field. Two additional courses are designed to provide students with a deeper engagement in research and practice. Four electives allow students to focus their work in an area of concentration, such as health care, the environment, or ombuds practice. At least two of these electives must be chosen from courses designed for the program; up to two may be chosen from course offerings in other schools of the University. Three Master's Capstone Thesis Seminars immerse students in the world of negotiation, mediation and conflict resolution through applied research and exposure to professional work in the field with grounding in theory, research and practice.

This is a rigorous and concentrated graduate degree program that demands a serious commitment of time and energy. The Master of Science in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution can be taken on a full or part-time basis, and is designed to accommodate the professional obligations of students who are employed full-time.

Students should be aware of the nontraditional schedule. Classes are mostly held in the evenings and on the weekends. Course meetings are either spread out over the 14-week term or scheduled as weekend, day-long intensives. Course schedules are posted in advance of the term so that students can plan accordingly. Classroom attendance is required. Students are also expected to devote significant time to completing reading and written assignments, and projects outside of class.

In order to receive the Master of Science in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution, students must complete all requirements within three years (six terms, excluding summer) with an overall grade point average of 3.0 (B) or better.

Learning how to turn real-world data sets into tools and useful insights, with the help of software and algorithms.

Data plays a role in almost every scientific discipline, business industry or social organisation. Medical scientists sequence human genomes, astronomers generate terabytes of data per hour with huge telescopes and the police employ seismology-like data models that predict where crimes will occur. And of course, businesses like Google and Amazon are shifting user preference data to fulfil desires we don’t even know we have. There is therefore an urgent need for data scientists in whole array of fields. In the Master’s specialisation in Data Science you’ll learn how to turn data into knowledge with the help of computers and how to translate that knowledge into solutions.

Although this Master’s is an excellent stepping-stone for students with ambitions in research, most of our graduates work as data consultants and data analysts for commercial companies and governmental organisations.

Why study Data Science at Radboud University?

- This specialisation builds on the strong international reputation of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS) in areas such as machine learning, probabilistic modelling, and information retrieval.
- We’re leading in research on legal and privacy aspects of data science and on the impact of data science on society and policy.
- Our approach is pragmatic as well as theoretical. As an academic, we don’t just expect you to understand and make use of the appropriate tools, but also to program and develop your own.
- Because of its relevance to all kinds of different disciplines, we offer our students the chance to take related courses at other departments like at language studies (information retrieval and natural language processing), artificial intelligence (machine learning for cognitive neuroscience), chemistry (pattern recognition and chemometrics) and biophysics (machine learning and optimal control).
- The job opportunities are excellent: some of our students get offered jobs before they’ve even graduated and almost all of our graduates have positions within six months after graduating.
- Exceptional students who choose this specialisation have the opportunity to study for a double degree in Computing Science together with the specialisation in Web and Language Interaction (Artificial Intelligence). This will take three instead of two years.

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

Admission requirements for international students

- A proficiency in English
In order to take part in the programme, you need to have fluency in English, both written and spoken. Non-native speakers of English without a Dutch Bachelor's degree or VWO diploma need one of the following:
- TOEFL score of >550 (paper based) or >213 (computer based) or >80 (internet based)
- IELTS score of >6.0
- Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE) or Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE), with a mark of C or higher

Career prospects

A professional data scientist has fine problem-solving, analytical, programming, and communication skills. He or she applies those skills to analyse a problem in the light of the available real-world data:
- To come up with a creative and useful solution.
- To find or program the right tool to turn the data into knowledge.
- To communicate the obtained findings to others.

By combining data, computing power and human intellect, data scientists can make a real difference to help and improve our society.

The job perspective for our graduates is excellent. Industry desperately needs data science specialists at an academic level, and thus our graduates have no difficulty in find an interesting and challenging job. A few of our graduates decide to go for a PhD and stay at the university, but most of our students go for a career in industry. They then typically either find a job at a larger company as consultant or data analysis, or start up their own company in data analytics.

Examples of companies where our graduates end up include SMEs like Orikami, Media11 and FlexOne, and multinationals like ING Bank, Philips, ASML, Capgemini, Booking.com and perhaps even Google.

Our approach to this field

Data nowadays plays a role in almost every scientific discipline as well as industry and is rapidly becoming a key driver of scientific discoveries, business innovation, and solutions for societal challenges such as better healthcare. Medical scientists are sequencing and analysing human genomes to uncover clues to infections, cancer, and other diseases. With huge telescopes, astronomers generate terabytes of data per hour to study the formation of galaxies and the evolution of quasars. Businesses like Google and Amazon are sifting social networking and user preference data to fulfill desires we don't even know we have. Police employing seismology-like data models can predict where crimes will occur and prevent them from happening.

It is then with good reason that data science has been called the sexiest job of the 21st century. Many companies complain about the difficulty to find skilled data scientists and predict this to be even harder in the future. A professional data scientist has fine problem-solving, analytical, programming, and communication skills. He or she applies those skills to analyse a problem in the light of the available real-world data, to come up with a creative and useful solution, to find or program the right tool to turn the data into knowledge, and to communicate the obtained findings to others. By combining data, computing power and human intellect, data scientists can make a real difference to help and improve our society.

Learning how to design high-level software that guarantees safety and correctness while still being in control of its complexity.

Software plays a role in almost every aspect of our daily lives and in every organisation anywhere in the world. It can often be a crucial key to their success. Well-structured software that is attuned to an organisation’s needs and future plans can be cost effective, improve efficiency, offer better services and be innovative. Many companies, in every branch out there, are therefore looking for highly skilled software specialists. Graduates of the Master’s specialisation in Software Science will have no trouble finding a job.

Producing software is not merely a technological enterprise but a deeply scientific and creative one as well. Modern cars drive on 20 million lines of code. How do we develop all this software and control its complexity? How do we ensure correctness of software on which the lives in a speeding car literally depend on? This specialisation goes far beyond basic code writing. It’s about analysing and testing code in order to improve it as well as simplify it.

Why study Software Science at Radboud University?

- Although not the only focus, our programme puts a lot of emphasis on embedded software and functional programming.
- We teach a unique range of software analysis techniques and application down to practical/commercial use in industry.
- This specialisation builds on the strong international reputation of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS) in areas such as model based and virtual product development, advanced programming, and domain specific languages. We also closely collaborate with the Embedded Systems Institute.
- Our approach is pragmatic as well as theoretical. As an academic, we don’t just expect you to understand and make use of the appropriate tools, but also to program and develop your own.
- For your Master’s research we have a large number of companies like Philips, ASML and NXP offering projects. There are always more projects than students.
- Thanks to free electives students can branch out to other Computing Science domain at Radboud University such as security, machine learning or more in-depth mathematical foundations of computer science.
- The job opportunities are excellent: some of our students get offered jobs before they’ve even graduated and almost all of our graduates have positions within six months after graduating.

Then join us in this innovative new postgraduate programme from Schumacher College in collaboration with the School of Architecture, Design and Environment at Plymouth University, the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, the Dartington Hall Trust and surrounding communities.

Ecological Design Thinking

Never has there been a more important time for a new approach for engaging with the challenging situations we face from the local to the global levels. In a rapidly changing dynamic situation, solutions rarely remain optimal for very long and continuous active participation is a necessary ingredient for success. Growing resilience in individuals and communities is the way to keep going despite the continuous change around us.

Our programme in Ecological Design Thinking embraces and explores this complex world of interactions with lively engagement and an optimistic approach. It offers powerful, practical and ecology-centred skills and knowledge to apply to a diverse range of practices from design, education and business to the more specific roles of leadership, management and consultancy.

The Ecological Design Thinking programme is trans-disciplinary, insightful and universal in its application; pragmatic and integrative in its operation. It brings together theoretical and practical discourses on ecologically inspired design, with methods of design thinking that are merged with the latest developments in anthropology, psychology and socio- political economics. It aims to create a novel ground for change makers at the forefront of our transition to sustainable societies.

Ecologically inspired design includes the study of ecological worldviews, systems dynamics and applied complexity theory alongside the philosophies and practices of permaculture and biomimetic design.

Design thinking is a well-established participatory technique grounded in the empathic understanding of the feelings, experiences and emotions of others. It engages people in lively conversations, visually stimulated interactions and playful prototyping. It frames problems as opportunities, forms insights and generates creative and collaborative solutions in complex situations.

The Ecological Design thinking programme aims to provide a nourishing environment for participants by incorporating short-courses led by internationally recognised thinkers, place-making projects in collaboration with the Dartington Hall Trust, the home of Schumacher College, and short placements offered by external partner organisations.

This programme is the fourth radical postgraduate programme developed at Schumacher College and contributes to and enhance the College’s ongoing collaborative inquiry into sustainable living – a live and networked inquiry of practice underway around the world by the College’s 20,000 alumni and others.

Who is this course for?

We would be delighted to receive your application whether you are coming directly from an undergraduate degree, taking time-out to study mid-career or wanting an opportunity to develop your understanding of a practice that is of great importance to all of our futures. We encourage applications from community practitioners and activists as well as planners, educators, architects, politicians and policy makers. You do not necessarily need a first degree in design to apply for this course. You only need to be enthusiastic, resilient and committed.

We are looking for enthusiastic agents of change who are ready to co-design new approaches to the way we live that are socially just and ecologically sustainable. We are looking for those prepared to take risks and stand on the cutting-edge of new practices in this area.

Schumacher College welcomes students from all over the world in a diverse mix of cultural experience and age that allows for rich peer- to- peer learning.

Often called “The Engineer’s MBA,” a master’s degree in engineering management combines your technical background with a core business curriculum. Read more
Often called “The Engineer’s MBA,” a master’s degree in engineering management combines your technical background with a core business curriculum. The blended-Internet delivery format provides flexibility.

Studies have found that most successful companies are managed by people with experience in the core business of the company. In the case of technology-based companies, this means engineers or other technically oriented individuals. Too often, the lack of a solid background in management has prevented engineers from rising to decision-making positions.

MSOE’s Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) graduate program is based on the philosophy that, for American companies to grow and compete internationally, their technical personnel must have the tools to effectively manage and participate in the decision-making process. The engineering management program is best described as a master’s degree in general management with a technological orientation.

Designed to accommodate busy working professionals, courses are available via blended-Internet format. This combines the benefits of face-to-face interaction with the convenience of online learning. Most classes meet one evening per week.

Advantages of the MSEM degree:

- The MSEM is designed to complement your undergraduate technical degree.
- The MSEM is a technology-oriented program, meeting the specific needs of engineers and other technical and business professionals progressing into management.
- Most faculty members in the MSEM program have a Ph.D. and at least one of their degrees in engineering, mathematics, science or business. Their academic background is enhanced by extensive industry experience.

Blended Internet delivery

The blended Internet option creates a pathway for students to complete the MSEM in less than two years. Blended Internet delivery combines the rich faculty/student interaction that is the hallmark of an MSOE education with the flexibility of online learning. The amount of time students spend in class is reduced, while time spent on project-focused learning is enhanced.

MSOE’s blended classes meet fact-to-face during alternating weeks. Meetings occur during the evening on “even” numbered or “odd” numbered weeks each academic term. Online learning activities are scheduled during non-meeting weeks and are facilitated via MSOE’s Blackboard instructional platform. Digital lectures, interactive discussions, investigative case studies, computerized simulations and synchronous chats are examples of online learning experiences used by MSOE faculty.

100% Online delivery

Geography is not a constraint for students interested in completing the MSEM at a distance. In addition to the Blended, Internet format mentioned above, there also is an option to take courses via 100% online distance delivery. The rich faculty, student interaction that is the hallmark of the MSEM is replicated in online classes creating dynamic and flexible learning environments. Students can choose which format best fits their lives, while advancing their learning and professional skills.

Program Objectives

Program objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the academic program is preparing the graduates to achieve. Graduates of the MSEM program will:
- hold positions of leadership in a rapidly changing, technologically driven business climate.
- develop and execute strategic as well as tactical plans.
- be starting entrepreneurial companies, managing programs, driving focused change and creating value.
- drive collaborative communication and relationship building across organizational, cultural and social lines.
- stimulate innovation for sustained success

Student Outcomes

This course provides experienced managers with knowledge of the theory, models and practice of coaching. It is designed to give a strong foundation in the knowledge bases and pragmatic exigencies contemporary coaches are faced with in today's workplaces. By conducting a critical analysis through the leading models and theories of the field, this course creates a space where you can reflexively engage with the dilemmas professional helping relationships in organisations face.

Combining academic study with practical application and skill development, this certificate is the essential starting place for those interested in how relational interventions can help shape the future of work.

Organisations have woken up to the fact that the 'soft' skills of working life are so hard, most employees need some additional perspective to help them be successful in their roles. Coaching as an intervention to address this has grown exponentially. Some pertinent questions remain, and need reflection: why has coaching emerged now? Why is it seen to be so relevant? How can we tell when/if it works? Is it different from counselling and psychotherapy? Are certain types of coaching more effective, under certain conditions, with certain people?

Consisting of 3 modules, the certificate contains a professional development module designed to evaluate learning and aid reflexive practice. Through case studies and client work, you have the opportunity to: analyse and understand your work through a range of lenses; allow for different interpretations; learn to use supervision effectively; explore different responses; and reflect on the coaching relationship process.

A second module tackles all pertinent issues that face the contemporary coach. From ethics and change to boundaries and defences, often overlooked topological issues are highlighted, and theory and practice fused. Rather than looking at the coaching dyad in isolation, the main emphasis in this module is to contextualise the work in the context of evidence frameworks, organisational systems and practices, and organisations as political arenas.

Finally, an introductory module sets the scene and introduces various ranges and flavours of coaching and helping relationships, including a historical perspective of the use of relationships in the helping professions.

This certificate is for people who have an interest in understanding the roles helping relationships play at work, and their impact in and out of organisations. The course suits people who have the ability to critically reflect on their thoughts, emotions, (re)actions and behaviours.

An MSc in Economics and Business Administration - Finance and International Business not only provides you with the professional qualifications for making strategic decisions concerning difficult and complex financial matters, but also gives you experience and competence in acting in an international context.

The programme in Finance and International Business exposes you to an international educational environment where students come from different countries and thus have different cultural backgrounds.

All exams and courses are carried out in English by members of faculty with an international background.

The programme provides a theoretical framework for advanced academic study of finance and international business that enables you to solve practical problems in the international business community.

The opportunities for participating in exchange and internship programmes either in Denmark or abroad make it a genuinely international education.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

PREREQUISITE COURSES

The programme is divided into four semesters. The two first semesters are each divided into two blocks.

The first semester creates the necessary foundation both methodologically and theoretically for further studies of finance and international business.

Applied Econometric Methods introduces you to the most widely used quantitative and empirical methods in econometrics, including in particular financial econometrics. The course has two major aims. Firstly, it provides you with tools which enable you to acquire the knowledge published in high quality publications within the areas of empirical finance and economics. Secondly, it equips you with tools for modelling and estimating econometric systems. The methods involved have been chosen with a view towards applications within empirical finance and economics.

Corporate Finance deals with the financial problems of a company and various solution models will be introduced. Further issues are the interactions between the company and the financial markets, with special emphasis on valuation of the company in a capital market perspective.

International Business Methods covers macro level (regional economic integration, e.g. the EU, trade barriers, etc.), company level (internationalisation and export market strategies, management of subsidiary companies, etc.) and individual level interaction between people of different professional and cultural backgrounds.

Internationalisation of the Firm provides you with an in-depth and detailed understanding of theories surrounding the internationalisation of businesses and the practical implications of these theories.


SPECIALISATION COURSES

The second semester is devoted to more advanced studies within the two areas.

International Financial Accounting focuses on the financial reporting requirements in international environments. An understanding of international business depends on a theoretically grounded, pragmatic knowledge of the international requirements for corporations to report their financial performance and financial position.

Strategy and Management Accounting
In this course different elements of strategy formulation and strategic management accounting will be discussed and analysed. An important element involves the provision of information for the formulation of an organisations' strategy and managing strategy implementation and its importance for management accounting.

Advanced Corporate Finance studies corporate finance under asymmetric information and agency problems. Traditional agency theory and asymmetric information are used to revisit capital structure, dividend and capital budgeting policies. Focus is also on the role of governance systems under different ownership structures.

International Business Finance
The multinational firm is confronted with the task of operating internationally. This necessitates an understanding of the markets for products, factors of production, and financial assets. Operating internationally poses unique risks – one of these being the existence of fluctuating exchange rates. More generally, the global integration of money and capital markets implies opportunities as wells as challenges – both of which have to be considered by the multinational firm.

In the third semester you can choose elective courses within your areas of interest. The courses can either be taken at Aarhus BSS during the semester, at the AU Summer University or at one of our more than 200 partner universities abroad. You can also participate in internship programmes either in Denmark or abroad.

The fourth semester is devoted to the final thesis. You may choose the topic of the thesis freely and in this way get a chance to concentrate on and specialise in a specific field of interest. The thesis may be written in collaboration with another student or it may be the result of your individual effort. When the thesis has been submitted, it is defended before the academic advisor as well as an external examiner.

The curriculum of the course consists of surveys of modern and international contemporary art, as well as close consideration of visual arts institutions and practices, training in exhibition organization and public programs in museums and not-for-profit galleries, commissioning, writing, publishing and commercial gallery activity. The teaching combines lecture-based courses, self-initiated research, seminars, site visits, and collaborative work. It also involves the realization of a project in partnership with a national pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
The duration of the Masters program is divided as follows: seven months of lectures, lab activities, museum and gallery visits, integrated with individual study, project development and three months dedicated to the elaboration of a final Thesis Project that can be undertaken alone or in a group.
The Masters program has a very pragmatic approach, providing students with methodology and a step-by-step path that will lead to the realization of an exhibition project. For that reason its structure is divided into 3 main parts:

- AREA 1_THEORY
The first part provides students with solid introduction to the history of post-WW2 modern and contemporary art, and a critical analysis of recent trends. The history of exhibitions is analyzed in the light of museology, leading to a consideration of current curatorial strategies.

- AREA 2_SKILLS AND EXPERTISE
The second part is concerned with specific expertise and skills required to develop an efficient working practice in fields of exhibition organization and management, also placing emphasis on audience development through marketing and learning, writing – as required for publication, fundraising etc – and off-site activity. Driven by renowned professionals, this area will be relevant equally for those wishing to pursue careers either in not-for-profit or commercial art worlds, in auction houses or art fairs, commissioning the production of new art work in museums or in the public realm.

- AREA 3_PRACTICE
The third part is the realization of a curatorial project, starting from an idea to its concrete realization. They will moreover live the experience of the next 57th International Art Exhibition managed by La Biennale of Venice from a special point of view, and special week inside the main cultural institution located in the city.
