Master in Corporate Management & Economics

Zeppelin University
Campus Full time 1 - 2  August 2018 Germany Friedrichshafen

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.

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....

Master’s Degree in Circular Economy (Lappeenranta University of Technology)

Edunation
Campus September 2018 Finland Tampere

In this Master’s program, you will learn how to replace goods with services if it is more efficient and better for the environment. For example, information technology can offer us access to products and assets which can be utilized to create these solutions. [+]

The Master’s program in Circular Economy is offered by the Lappeenranta University of Technology on the Lahti Campus.

The existing economic system is based on the take-make-and-dispose approach powered mostly by fossil fuels. The assumption is that increasing economic growth produces so much surplus that arising adverse environmental impacts could be dealt with.

However, the system keeps growing only if there are enough resources for transformation, sinks for waste, credit for investments and economic growth.

The circular economy offers an alternative. It aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value. It aims to decouple economic growth from the consumption of finite resources by closing the loop of product life cycles. The system in which materials are transformed into useful goods and services endlessly is powered by renewable energy systems.... [-]
