Today’s society is characterized by increasing globalisation is increasing, competition is intensifying, and digitalisation and social shifts are impending worldwide. The MSc in Strategy, Organisation and Leadership prepares students to take on a variety of managerial responsibilities in volatile times through courses centred around case-based discussions of managerial challenges.
All the academic staff at Aarhus BSS pursue research and teaching responsibilities simultaneously, so students can expect a programme that is up to date with the latest research findings. The first semester consists of three pre-requisite courses concerning Organizational Theory, Strategic Leadership, and methodology. Together, these courses lay the foundation for understanding how organizations work, and how we can interpret and investigate managerial challenges. The second semester provides students with deeper specialist knowledge related to strategy, HRM, organizational change, and digitalization. In other words, the courses zoom in on different managerial sub-themes. On the third semester students can choose between a number of electives at AU or abroad, or they can apply for internship in a private or public organization.
