This Master's course combines theory with practical knowledge and skills to help students understand the wide array of opportunities and challenges facing organizations today. The course comprises four modules - each drawing upon a particular theoretical perspective to examine important issues such as how firms enhance performance, balance competing demands, and negotiate change. Each module also contains a practical component, which allows students to apply the theoretical perspectives to real life cases and research projects. Because of the cumulative nature of the modules, students are expected to attend every class and to actively participate in discussions and activities.
- Learn about dominant theoretical perspectives in management
- Gain a better understanding of what is involved in navigating today’s complex and integrated business environment
- Develop practical analytical and communication skills
- Enhance leadership and team-building capabilities
Continuous assessment courses (PI) are high-interactive courses.
For a positive completion of the course an 80% presence is required.
Should there be an important reason for an absence in the course, then a maximum of 20% of the entire course duration can be missed. For cumulative absences of more than 20%, the course must be repeated. A confirmation (eg. a medical certificate) must be provided for the absence.
According to the examination regulations of the WU, important reasons are those which are outside the disposition of the student (illness, accident, death of a close relative). Professional obligations are not considered as an important reason within the meaning of the examination regulations, because they are in the disposition of the students.
