The Master of Science in Business Studies trains students to analyse organisational issues and produce appropriate solutions. Business Studies focuses on a multidisciplinary approach.
Often analyses and solutions that make sense in one discipline - economics, psychology, sociology or political science - will have an unexpected impact in other parts of the organisation. By viewing issues in a coordinated, plural and managed way, the consequences can be mapped coherently.
