Executive Master in Lifelong Learning, Knowledge Management, and Institutional Change
This part-time study international and interdisciplinary Master's Program aims to educate participants about the consequences of an aging workforce and of rapid knowledge change, and how insight available in the social and behavioral sciences can help to maintain productivity and innovation. The program has been especially developed to provide further training to individuals working and/or qualified in domains such as Human Resource Development, Organizational Development, Consulting, Management, Training, Administration. With this added qualification, participating executives can return to their corporation or institution and help individuals in the organization as well as the organization itself to transform in response to the challenges of aging and fast knowledge turnover in modern societies. The program in Lifelong Learning, Knowledge Management, and Institutional Change seeks to bridge traditional divisions between academic disciplines and between academic and applied questions. It focuses on cognitive, social and personality development of the adult employee as well as on the characteristics of the employing organization and how both are interrelated. Finally; the program informs about the effects of this interrelation on lifelong learning efforts and the success of Knowledge and Human Resource Management at the organizational level.
