Program Information

Degree Offered:

M.Sc.- Organisation Studies - track Organisation of Cultural Diversity

Format: Campus

Program Description:

People with different cultural, religious and linguistic backgrounds encounter each other in society and in work organisations. These encounters raise questions regarding the ways in which they cooperate and work together and point to the need for diversity management of organisations and societies. Issues of diversity in organisations and of a multicultural society are increasingly on the agenda of managers and policy makers. Within the Master's programme Organisation Studies, you can choose for this specialised track Organisation of Cultural Diversity. The programme is offered by a multidisciplinary team of lecturers from anthropology, cross-cultural psychology, human resource studies, organisation studies, religious studies and linguistics. Programme The programme is compact. The workload is challenging, thanks in part to the small scale of the study settings. In the first semester, students participate in six courses and in the second semester they dedicate almost all their time to conducting research and writing their Master’s thesis within the framework of a circle of eight peers and an experienced staff member.
