Economics

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

Aside from the distinguishing between microeconomics and macroeconomics, students who are studying economics must also learn the difference between positive economics and normative economics. The former deals with that which is, while the later deals with that which ought to be. Other distinguishing characteristics include economic theory and applied economics.

Masters in Economics. A nation’s competition policy (sometimes called its antitrust policy) is a set of laws and institutions that promote economic efficiency through the protection and encouragement of competitive markets. Kenya has recently entered a new, modern, era in its competition policy history through the passage of the Competition Act (2010) and the establishment of key new institutions for its implementation: the Competition Authority of Kenya and the Competition Tribunal. This new law and its associated enforcement authorities will surely change the landscape for competition in Kenya and advance the nation’s progress toward a modern middle-income economy. For the new competition policy regime to succeed however requires the development of a considerable amount of human capital – people knowledgeable about the law and economics of competition policy who can participate it its implementation, evaluate its effectiveness and contribute to its evolution through the inevitable learning process.

Master in Corporate Management & Economics

Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122.

Masters in Economics. Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122. So what now? For a deeper understanding of these new challenges – unavoidable crises aside – knowledge in communication sciences, cultural sciences and political sciences are imperative. Medialization in the form of "CEO branding" and the harmonization of "product-, equity- and employer branding" within the national culture are as much part of the challenge faced by today's top decision-makers as interaction with political networks, regulation and deregulation trends, privatization initiatives and public-private partnerships. Since 2003, ZU has reacted to these challenges with a new (by German standards) type of research-oriented business qualification for generalists. The novelty lies in the combination of business administration and economics with cultural studies, communication and media studies, as well as aspects of political science and public administration. A program that questions the economy. We have already had enough answers. The pro­fes­sors know this one best: What are the eight most im­por­tant ques­tions oc­cu­py­ing the fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics?
