Why study this programme?

The Master’s in Strategic Management focuses on strategy processes and their management in organisations in relationship to their dynamic and complex environment. You use a multidisciplinary perspective on strategic management, using insights from business, economics, sociology, and psychology. You will learn to describe and analyse the influences of the various stakeholders, strategy processes in organisations, the internal and external environment, and internationalisation.


Master's specialisation in Strategic Management

  • This specialisation focuses on stakeholder management, responsible decision-making, intervention and change. We offer a multidisciplinary perspective on strategic management, using insights from not only business administration but also economics, finance, sociology, and psychology.
  • You will learn all about the turbulent conditions that influence an organisation and its relationship with governments, corporations, environmentalists, interest groups, the media, and even illegal groups. We will examine conditions as the liberalisation of markets and political institutions, the emergence of environmentalism, sustainable development, social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, increasing globalisation, and the explosion of information technologies.
  • You will be challenged to apply the theories to real world cases and will do assignments within organisations.
  • The programme will develop your ability to think critically. Rather than automatically applying standard solutions, you’ll learn to always reflect and analyse the pay offs and set them against ethical considerations.
