WHAT IS THE PROGRAMME?

This is a unique and innovative interdisciplinary programme taught through subject areas that include law, anthropology, english, history, philosophy, politics, psychology, sociology and the creative arts. Module choice within the programme will permit you to build your own personalised portfolio of knowledge and learning within the area of conflict transformation and social justice. You will be taught by academics and practitioners whose expertise is both national and global and who offer research-led teaching in areas of conflict such as South/Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Southern Europe, South America and Northern Ireland.

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?

This MA provides the opportunity to undertake study across the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and beyond. You will be able to choose modules across ten disciplines and will benefit from an enriched, interdisciplinary learning environment. You will engage with core theories, concepts, issues and debates within conflict transformation and social justice, as well as with modes and forms of conflict and the legal and human rights aspects of conflict transformation and social justice.
Students will critically examine the key conceptual, moral, legal, political and cultural issues that define conflict and its relationship to transformation and social justice. Study will be framed by a core module that will draw together the various disciplinary approaches and methods. Those methods will also be taught via bespoke training modules within the Faculty’s postgraduate taught programme.

This interdisciplinary environment may provide a gateway to PhD research.

PROGRAMME DETAILS

Students are required to complete THREE compulsory taught modules:
Global Concepts and Practices of Conflict Transformation and Social Justice (20 CATS), Conducting Research in Conflict Transformation and Social Justice (20 CATS), and Making Knowledge Work (20 CATS), as well as the triple-weighted dissertation (60 CATS).

The remaining 60 CATS points will be taken via module choice from the following Schools: English, Creative Arts, Law, Politics, International Studies and Philosophy, History and Anthropology, Psychology and Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work. Students must pass all taught modules equating to 120 CATS points before being able to complete a dissertation.

The taught modules are delivered during two 12 week semesters

A student cannot take more than 40 credits in any School. Where a student wishes to take more than 40 credits in a particular School, it is recommended that they apply for the Masters programme in that School.
Within each stream students must take modules from at least two Schools.

STRUCTURE OF THE PROGRAMME

The optional modules are structured into three streams. You will be able to specialise in one stream that will permit you to explore different disciplinary approaches to and perspectives on related and overlapping subjects.

Stream 1: Conflict Transformation
In Stream 1, you will be able to focus on conflict via reading across definitions, forms, expressions and manifestations of conflict, conflict transformation and social justice. This could include, for example exploring notions such as terrorism, territoriality, behaviouralism, performance, scale, ethnicity, gender, environmental resource competition, youth and class.

Stream 2: Asserting Social Justice, Inclusion and Rights
Stream 2 will give you the opportunity to link skills development to the understanding of conflict transformation via a human rights and/or social justice frame. The Stream relates to rights of assembly, human rights abuse, social injustice, environmental conflicts, disempowerment and social, gendered, youth-centred and other exclusions.

Stream 3: Religion, Society, Peace-building and Conflict
In Stream 3 you will work on understanding religion/faith-based coexistence and inter/intra faith approaches to peace-building that relate to the concepts of ‘peace via religion’, ‘peace without religion’ and ‘peace with religion’. The practice of religious/faith based approaches will be taught around the importance of faith in conflict transformation, religion/faith-based NGO examples and approaches.

OVERVIEW

Digital has changed the game for sports business forever. Teams, leagues and federations no longer compete with each other; the new competitors are digitally-based activities such as social media, video streaming and gaming. Some analysts have even observed sport to be the most disrupted of all industries. 

Digital is more about aligning strategy and the organization to behaviours and expectations of modern fans than it is about technology. 

Ultimately, digital is about growth and therefore 'Managing Digital Transformation in Sports' has been purposely developed for football and sport organisations to explain the digital challenge to sports leaders, managers and professionals in a way that will enable organization and career growth.  

It is a modern reality that whilst business models in sports are still adjusting to the new data and fan-first reality of the digital era, a new breed of technologies such as virtual and augmented reality have arrived to push the economy further into competition for personalized and immersive experiences. 

 Through all of this volatility, the principles that are needed to navigate digital disruption in our own roles and organizations are now understood. 'Managing Digital Transformation in Sports' takes lessons from all industries in the digital economy and combines them with football and sports business best practices to deliver a master class for career and business transformation.

CULTURAL DIVERSITY IN AN INTERCONNECTED WORLD. Despite strong forces of globalisation, socialcultural sameness does not increase. Read more

CULTURAL DIVERSITY IN AN INTERCONNECTED WORLD

Despite strong forces of globalisation, socialcultural sameness does not increase. Power tensions and violent conflicts continue to persist and even erupt.

Why?

To answer this question, we need an anthropological analysis of the relation between cultural diversity and power within the process of sociocultural transformation. The Master's programme Cultural Anthropology: Sociocultural Transformation (CASTOR) equips you with the knowledge and skills to make this analysis.

International fieldwork

This two-year Master has a strong international focus, and it introduces you to the complex interplay of cultural diversity and power in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. You’ll conduct ethnographic fieldwork abroad.

Interdisciplinary character

Several courses offer an interdisciplinary setting, in which you can explore topics that relate not only to anthropology, but also to other areas, such as political sociology, social justice, and psychology.

Research schools

This programme is firmly embedded in local, national, and international research contexts, demonstrated through national and international collaboration. The research programme Sovereignty and Social Contestation participates in the University’s research focus area of Cultures, Citizenship, and Human Rights. Research and PhD training are situated in the KNAW-accredited research school CERES. Courses are taught by staff members with strong international reputations and standing, such as Prof Rebecca Bryant, Dr Kees KooningsDr Hans de Kruijf, Dr Geert MommersteegDr Martijn OosterbaanProf Ton Robben, and Dr Gerdien Steenbeek.

Best Master's

This programme was rated in 2017 as the Best Master’s Programme out of a total of twelve MA programmes in anthropology and development studies.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

The Master's Cultural Anthropology: Sociocultural Transformation prepares you for a research career, in academia (including further PhD training), in other research institutes or in private companies. On the foundation of your Bachelor’s degree, this Master’s programme trains you to operate as a qualified cultural anthropologist. As a science practitioner you'll develop the academic skills and knowledge necessary to initiate and develop groundbreaking research on the relationship between cultural diversity and power within the process of sociocultural transformation. Being educated at Utrecht University guarantees that you are equipped with a strong methodological basis.

If you wish to have a career that is less focused on research, then the Master's programme Cultural Anthropoloy: Sustainable Citizenship might interest you. The substantive focus of this programme is on citizenship in relation to a sustainable environment, while the Master's Cultural Anthropology: Sociocultural Transformation focuses on issues of power, (violent) conflict and the state.

The Institute for Work Based Learning delivers these programmes with our strategic partners at Consalia.

We offer two routes to gaining a Post Graduate Masters in Sales Transformation. One programme is for sales leaders, the other for sales professionals involved in selling complex solutions. These are unique programmes. They focus on applying world-class, leading-edge thinking and expertise in leadership and sales to participants’ transformation goals in their own organisations.

The Masters programmes provide organisations with the first opportunity to offer academic recognition to their sales leaders and salespeople for their sales experience and excellence in a work environment. Both programmes are totally focused on sales roles and based on proven practices for performance improvement and real-world learning.

The purpose of these programmes is to improve the professional status of salespeople, which is all too often overlooked, and to provide organisations with important research and innovation on sales practices. Modules designed by Consalia and validated by Middlesex University are included in each.

Both Masters programmes can be tailored to an organisation’s specific approach to sales and sales management. The Masters programmes can, therefore, be fully integrated with an organisation’s sales management and sales curriculum. If participants already have the skills/knowledge due to prior learning then they can complete the work-based project without further formal input (or with reduced input).

The programmes are offered on an in-company basis, as a series of modules to be run over a period of 18 months to two years. Each module consists of either a two or three day facilitated workshop.

Key benefits

The UK’s only work based MSc in Sales Transformation
Distance and blended learning so there is no need to take time off work
Work-applied practical projects
Online meetings and lectures from industry leaders
Business simulations
Accreditation for prior learning (APL), allowing you to gain credit for prior study/work experience

Flexible study through distance learning

Many students choosing to study MSc Sales Transformation will be practitioners in full-time employment, with this in mind, we have designed the course to be flexible around your work and life commitments. You will be able to complete the course part-time through blended and distance learning. However, it would be also possible to shorten this to 12 months depending on how much time you can commit to the course.

The first five modules are delivered and assessed by Consalia. The final module and Masters project is delivered, supervised and assessed by Middlesex University. The academic award is made by Middlesex University.

Who should do this course?

The course is specifically aimed at experienced professionals who currently work in a highly competitive sales arena.

The world of manufacturing is changing!

As a consequence of the continuous social and economic global challenges, manufacturing companies are evolving their production systems, with particular focus on new management and technology skills.

The Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation will prepare future leaders for the 4th industrial revolution. Engineers are often forced into technical specialties and managers do not develop technological knowledge, meaning the end-to-end systemic view is often lost and opportunities missed. This programme blends together all these elements into a unique learning experience.

The best people are needed to face these challenges and take advantage of new developments. Only those who are highly skilled with a deep-rooted understanding of technology as well as markets, and with a forward-looking mindset, can unlock the potential of innovative manufacturing solutions.

Key Features

The Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation offers a range of benefits to both the participants and the companies that may sponsor them during their studies.

Programme Facts:

  • A flexible, 12-month, part-time programme including five week-long modules
  • Two core components for each module: Management and Technology
  • Study in three different countries: United Kingdom, Italy and Germany
  • Taught entirely in English
  • 260 classroom hours and 80 hours of distance learning
  • Company Project focused on automation and digital transformation opportunities
  • Delivered by world-renowned faculty and industry professionals
  • Partnership with COMAU Academy
  • Hands-on practical approach

The Master’s programme in Technology Governance and Digital Transformation leads to a technology-focused graduate degree in the fields of Public Administration, Innovation/Industrial Policy, Development Economics, and E-Governance. Read more

The Master’s programme in Technology Governance and Digital Transformation leads to a technology-focused graduate degree in the fields of Public Administration, Innovation/Industrial Policy, Development Economics, and E-Governance. The overall purpose of the program is to educate (policy) analysts with interdisciplinary skills to govern, analyse and develop a knowledge-based state and society. Innovation policy and its use in different economic situations has become a very important topic in the world, as the need for people who are knowledgeable in dealing with economic cycles in a new way is increasing. The program should be attractive for those international students who want to get an understanding of the dynamics of capitalist economies and economic development processes from a rather non-orthodox perspective, i.e. from evolutionary, post-Keynesian and other heterodox economics perspectives.

Key features

  • Faculty includes internationally distinguished, award-winning professors (Carlota Perez, Erik S. Reinert, Jan A. Kregel, Wolfgang Drechsler, Rainer Kattel, Robert Krimmer)
  • Opposed to standard text-book, mainstream economics that is taught in most universities
  • Case-study based teaching and student-friendly study arrangements
  • Site visits and guest lecturers from leading Estonian and international companies
  • Minimum stay in Estonia is one year – second year is dedicated for internship and MA thesis writing that can be accomplished anywhere

Course outline

The MA in Technology Governance and Digital Transformation programme is aimed at understanding economic development processes and is taught through the development and evolutionary economics perspectives, which oppose to standard text-book economics, taught at most universities around the world. The programme covers various interlinked areas of study, including public administration and the role of the state in economic development, innovation, industries, and finance.

Technology Governance is an approach and set of policies undertaken by the public and private sector and social actors to develop a knowledge base, social cohesion and competitiveness at the same time. So far, both in academic research and in policy advice, these aspects have tended to be separated. The Technology Governance and Digital Trasformation programme is designed to bridge these gaps. The current crisis has made the Technology Governance approach more necessary than ever. Not only are several of the core faculty members among the earliest who predicted the coming of the collapse, but they are all actively engaged in dealing with crisis now, both nationally and internationally.

Our Master’s programme in Technology Governance and Digital Transformation is a technology-focused special graduate degree as a realistic alternative to mainstream economics that could be placed in such areas as innovation policy, industrial policy or development economics. This is the international innovation policy and high-tech programme with a solid foundation in history and theory, embedded in an exciting environment that so many students and scholars were always looking for, yet could not find!

The programme is interesting as an early- or mid-career professional degree for those working in development authorities, private companies and NGOs. Programme graduates are working in the following organizations: Morgan Stanley (London), GIZ Private Sector Development Project (Georgia), Office of Prime Minister (Greece), Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications (Estonia) and various IT companies (Edicy, RM Solutions etc.). Other potential employers include international organizations, governmental institutions, science and technology parks, development agencies, think-tanks, and technology-intensive private companies.

Faculty of Social Sciences

Studying humanities and social sciences has become increasingly popular at the University. The studies in Technology Governance are organized by the Ragnar Nurkse School of Innovation and Governancee. There are about 450 students studying for a diploma, bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree. The School offers also courses in philosophy, cultural history, logic, and the history of technology. The lecturers of the programme are internationally recognized professionals.

Curriculum

Structure of curriculum

Future career options

Although the program is designed to educate prospective policy analysts and public servants, it is also ideal for those who see themselves working in the private sector (entrepreneurs, consultants, analysts) or non-governmental organisations. Potential employers could include international organisations, science and technology parks, development agencies, think-tanks, and technology-intensive companies. Furthermore, the program provides the grounds for a continuing academic career by engagement as a researcher in academic institutions or pursuing PhD studies. Career examples of our alumni: JP Morgan Stanley, Innovalue Management Partner GmbH, Office of the State Minister of Georgia, Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, Czechinvest, etc.

Visit the website: https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/study-here/courses/postgraduate/collaborative-transformation.aspx

Course detail

This course provides you with the knowledge and skills to initiate and develop public purpose collaborations and shared service projects, whilst also giving you a valuable postgraduate qualification. You will become a skilled and valuable in-house resource, able to cascade your learned skills across colleagues in collaboration activities and reduce or negate the necessity to pay for external consultancy on projects.

Suitability

Public sector managers and consultants who wish to study the effective development of collaborations and shared service initiatives in the public sector and gain a qualification.

Content

• Module 1: The Essentials of Shared and Collaborative Working
• Module 2: Change Management Theory and Practice
• Module 3: Developing a Collaborative Transformation roadmap

Format

All three modules will consist of a mixture of tutor-led input and structured activities in which you are invited to explore and critically discuss how relevant concepts, theories and models have been and might be applied in the workplace to enhance organisational and managerial effectiveness. The structured direct contact sessions are designed to provide a tutor-led forum for the exploration of the underpinning principles, issues and demands of collaborative transformation activities within the current complex environment.

A typical session may comprise a lecture of approximately 60 - 90 minutes, where overarching conceptual frameworks and aspects of the literature may be introduced. This would normally be followed by an opportunity for issues to be discussed or a seminar topic to be presented. In seminars you will participate interactively in exercises or problem solving, or lead the group on specific topics for debate. Further support is provided through a virtual learning environment (i.e. Blackboard) and direct contact via email with the respective module leaders.

Assessment

What is the benefit for my organisation?

Value for money by potentially saving thousands of pounds by building in-house capacity and thereby minimising external consultancy fees. These savings can be gained by applying a range of the 100 tools, techniques and templates, provided to each graduate, to create in-house reports, assessments, risk registers, stakeholder group analyses and action plans, and business case reports. Traditionally these are undertaken by external consultants at standard fees of between £750 and £1,000 per day. By developing and using in-house managers this could realise many thousands of pounds in tangible savings for shared service partnerships.

Background

Banks as all other stakeholders of the economy, attempt to understand and to take on innovations and new technologies which can help them to transform their business models in order to guide their clients around a new digital revolution. They fit more and more into a digital strategy.

These last years, the retail banking saw its model deeply disrupted by the increase of digital channels.

General Objective

The aim of the MBA Digital and Retail Banking is to train future professionals directly operational in the professions of digital banking. The teaching methods revolve around three subjects: to follow and think about the digital transformation of banks, to acquire and master a double financial and digital skill in order to practise professions in commercial banking and to train experts combining multidisciplinary skills with a great ability in work on projects.

Digital transformation

For banks, redesigning organizations, renewing their management and training their teams are required levers to achieve their digital transformation. The digital shift of banks is a huge project, because it impacts all activities, including front and back office. It is a strategic change which implies a whole new set of competences.

Retail banking is among the industries which have been profoundly changed by telecom and internet services which enable clients to be always connected.

The Master in Advanced European and International Studies - Mediterranean studies (MAEIS) provides an overarching and extensive view of the political, social, economic and cultural issues of the globalised world. The MAEIS is an international, interdisciplinary and itinerant programme which aims to educate the next generation of Euro-Mediterranean decision-makers. Following the slogan "Learning and living the Mediterranean", the participants rotate each trimester, moving their place of studies from Nice to Tunis and then Istanbul including a workshop in Rome. The programme is structured into three terms and is taught in English and French.

Programme

Nice

The first term (October to January) starts in the European Union, in Nice, France. It encompasses classes on the basics of the five modules (Conflict Management and Peace Making, Sustainable Development and Globalisation, Regional Integration and Transformation, Mediterranean Politics and Societies as well as Professional Skills Workshops). Studying in France helps the students to analyse the Mediterranean region and Euro-Mediterranean relations from an EU perspective. Courses will introduce to the institutional architecture of the EU and its neighbourhood policy. They will also discuss the shared risks of populism, terrorism and climate change. Mid-term exams will take place in December. The trimester concludes with a simulation exercise.

Tunis

The second term (January to April) starts off in Tunis, Tunisia. Our partner, the Université Internationale de Tunis, is famous for its integration of international students in Tunisia. Thanks to our partner, the Institut de Recherche sur le Maghreb Contemporain (IRMC), students will have access to the expertise and the library of one of the most renowned think tanks in the Maghreb. Researchers from the region will analyse transformation processes in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean in times of globalisation. Studying in Tunisia will provide the students with a unique experience of a historic democratisation process that turns the nobelpeace-prize winning country into a role model throughout the MENA region. For non-Arab speakers an Arab language course is compulsory.

A study trip to Rome will take place during the 2nd or the 3rd term. Here, a special focus will be given to Foreign Policy Analysis (EU, Russia, US, Iran), as well as migration, poverty and food security, including visits of relevant UN institutions and conférences at our Partner, the renowned think tank, Istituto Affari INternazionali (IAI).

Istanbul

The programme concludes in Istanbul, Turkey (April to July) where the courses are organised in cooperation with our long-term partner, the Istanbul Bilgi University. Courses will deal with the changing EU-Turkey relations. Students will have the opportunity to advance in their research work, as they are free of obligations from mid-May to mid-June to work on their thesis. The programme concludes with the defence of the thesis and oral exams. With their graduation on the Bosphorus, students become part of CIFE’s worldwide Alumni network.

Teaching Modules

Conflict Management and Peace Making

The Mediterranean is a case study par excellence for Peace and Conflict Studies. Understanding and explaining questions of war and peace has been at the heart of „International Relations“ as an academic discipline – from its very beginning, after the First World War. In the last two decades Mediterranean societies have been significantly affected by inter-group violence and inter-state conflicts: from the Western Balkans to Cyprus, from Israel to Palestine, from Syria to Lybia. Mediterranean conflicts are partly characterised by external interventions. The module will focus at causes and dynamics of escalation and de-escalation, including international law and peace-making in a multiperspective approach. Theories on violence and peace will help to analyse the case studies proposed.

Sustainable development and Globalisation

The Mediterranean in the 21st century faces unprecedented economic, environmental and social challenges. As economic development exercises increased pressure on limited resources, deteriorates the environment and creates growing inequalities, Mediterranean economies struggle to find their way through these challenges. An introduction into economics as an academic discipline will set the ground for a regional analysis of sustainable development, energy policies, climate action and demographic dynamics.

Regional integration and transformation

The European Union became a model of regional integration. Nation states agreed to transform their sovereignity into a multi-level governance system sui generis to keep regional peace, increase welfare and economic power. How is the dynamic architecture of European institutions functioning – in times of both Europeanisation and Euroscepticism? And to what extent are the Arab League or the Union for the Mediterranean comparable models of regional integration?

Regional integration is primarily an elite-driven, government-sponsored transformation process. However, socio-economic and political change can be triggered by civil society and social movements, as the „Arab Spring“ has shown transregionally in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Change and continuity differ significantly in the MENA-region. Why? And which repercussions for the Union for the Mediterranean?

Mediterranean Politics and Societies

Mediterranean Politics are shaped by an interplay of different policy fields and policy actors. Theories of International Relations (i.e. Foreign Policy Analysis, Migration Theories) will help to understand the dynamics of policy making towards and in the Mediterranean region. Migration constitutes a challenging and complex policy field throughout the Mediterranean.

In a second part of this module we will approach Mediterranean societies with a generational focus upon „youth“. The current number of youth in the Mediterranean is unprecedented. Meanwhile, youth unemployment is a phenomenon that nearly all Mediterranean societies have in common. At the crossroads of theory and practice this module will identify solutions to the challenges the young generation faces in the Mediterranean.

Professional Skills Workshops

The participants will take part in negotiation and mediation trainings, simulation games and follow career workshops as well as workshops on project cycle management and intercultural communication.

Applications and Scholarships

Candidates can submit their application via the online application form. They should also include all the relevant documents, or send them by e-mail. An academic committee meets regularly in order to review complete applications.

A limited number of scholarships can be awarded to particularly qualified candidates. There are different funds available for this programme.

The application deadline is 30 June of the current year

This programme trains you to do research in economic and cultural geography, planning and demography. The programme is aimed at people who are theoretically or methodologically orientated.

The Research Master in Regional Studies is interdisciplinary. It studies the fields of demography, human geography and regional planning from a social and economic science perspective.

The two-year programme provides ample opportunity for you to focus on the themes that interest you. You will gain a thorough philosophical and methodological background, and receive a solid training in qualitative and quantitative research methods. You will participate in research projects under supervision of experienced staff members, within the Faculty's Research Program TWIST: Towards Wellbeing, Innovation and Spatial Transformation.

You are required to gain some international experience, for instance by doing research in a foreign context, or by participating in an international workshop.

Why in Groningen?

The Research Master in Regional Studies in Groningen is unique because it delivers excellent researchers in the core themes of economic geography, cultural geography, planning and demography. At the same time, graduates combine their expertise in their own field with the capacity to put these themes in a broader, interdisciplinary perspective of the interactions between population, economy, culture and planning.

Job perspectives

You may opt for a PhD-career at a university. Commercial research and consultancy firms also hire graduates. In addition, you may work at research units of local, regional, national or even international government organisations. Finally, you can work in government related research institutes, such as the Netherlands Institute of Spatial Research (in Dutch: RPB, Ruimtelijk Planbureau).

The program of the Research Master in Regional Studies is intertwined with the Faculty's Research Program, towards Wellbeing, Innovation and Spatial Transformation (tWIST). In courses such as Individual Research Training (IRT) and Master Thesis, students participate in ongoing research projects of the senior academic staff, which are all embedded in tWIST.

The Study Program consists of different courses in the field of Regional Studies, related to the topics in tWIST. The specific courses depend on the individual student’s interests and specialization.

The research themes Wellbeing, Innovation and Spatial Transformation are studied in the broad field of geography and spatial planning, which investigates the role which space, place, location and distance, play in our communities and societies. We employ a range of qualitative, quantitative, micro and macro research methodologies to uncover these issues and to help improve wellbeing, to encourage innovation, and to increase our understanding of spatial transformation processes. The research work undertaken in each of the departments within the Faculty is also supported by the use of advanced geographical information systems (GIS). The research themes of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences complement the University of Groningen’s Healthy Ageing research program. Society is ageing and also becoming more geographically mobile. The outcome of this is that growing social inequalities in terms of wellbeing, heath and wealth are interrelated with emerging spatial inequalities. These are major issues faced by contemporary society for which the Faculty of Spatial Sciences is uniquely placed to provide coherent policy analysis, design and impact assessment.
