MBA- Scientific Degree in Management
MBA – Scientific Degree in Management
Movements towards globalisation have become the most important and universally recognised factors in the business world today. Market and competition forces have changed in such a way that managers are forced to alter their manner of reacting to and/or solving encountered problems.
Lack of the ability to adapt to the growing turbulence and the uncertainty of the environment lead to low development, stagnation and finally to ruin. Times of change face us with new challenges, demanding not just new knowledge but new people who are capable of meeting such challenges.
The mission of the programme is to create and train young scientists and professionals working in enterprises, banks, educational institutions, science, culture, health, sport, public services, government institutions etc. This programme is aimed not just at those with a B.A in economics, but also at those who encounter management problems in their professional lives, due to the wide scope of implementation of the knowledge acquired.
The courses are organised in three semesters:
During their studies, the candidates are required to pass 14 exams, submit three term papers and two reviews of which one is written in a foreign language dealing with a foreign publication.
The programme is organised into four semesters. The fourth semester is designed for the individual supervised work on the Master thesis. Each semester lasts for three months and classes are held according to schedule. Teaching methodology consists of lectures, seminars, workshops, individual consultations with the professors or supervisor (Mentor), role- playing and case studies both from literature and real-world business environment from which the candidates come.
Several workshops will be organised during the course of study to additionally help the students in meeting the challenges they will face.
Seminars are intended to deal with the most current issues in the management world. Seminar work will be done in teams as field projects in certain enterprises or as individual projects. The objective of seminar teaching is testing acquired knowledge in real life situations. Student will work in teams and in coordination with an appointed supervisor. The projects are comprised in three phases: analysis, establishment and solution proposal to the problem. The final step is project presentation in front of the professor and colleagues or in front of the managerial board of the enterprise, bank or organisation. We are constantly pressured by changes. However, the greatest danger for the economy is not the uncertainty these changes bring but activities based on outdated knowledge.
