COURSES AND CONTENT
MSc in Business Administration and Philosophy combines philosophy and business studies. Students enrolled in the programme will be trained in applying philosophical concepts, theories and analyses in the study of business practice as well as general economics. In the programme you will learn how to:
- Manage and navigate organizational fields with diverse forms of knowledge. This includes private companies where human and technical forms of knowledge intersect or public institutions where political and economic forms of knowledge must be integrated.
- Use philosophical reasoning in order to identify not only new solutions to conventional problems but also new ways of posing the problem in the first place.
- Use words with precision in writing as well as spoken language.
- Challenge existing business models and look for new ways of integrating ethics, aesthetics, and sustainability into business practice.
- Cut through the hot air that much of management lingo is infected with.
- Understand the broader societal context in which private and public organizations operate.
- Understand organizational problems and solutions from the perspective of management as well as from the perspective of the employees.
- Spot and diagnose new trends in the economy as well as society at large.
Each course in the programme is organized as an encounter between philosophical theory and a specific theme that has relevance to business practice or general economics. The purpose is for students to attain specific knowledge about themes such as finance, leadership, Corporate Social Responsibility, money, sustainability or Human Resource Management, while providing them with methods and concepts to reflect critically on this knowledge.
MSc in Business Administration and Philosophy is a two-year master programme divided into four semesters. The autumn semester runs from September through November with exams in December and January; and the spring semester from February through April with exams in May and June.
First and second semester consist of mandatory courses, the third semester of elective courses and the fourth semester completes the programme with a master thesis.
