Would you like to gain the knowledge and skills required to deal with complex problems in management? Then you should choose one of the specializations of this degree.

In the Master's Degree in Business Administration you learn to deal with complex management issues. There are five tracks that all specialize in one particular area of business administration:

The programme is intended for students with an academic background in Business, Economics, and related academic fields.

Each specialization has high academic standards and is research oriented. Therefore, all your lecturers are researchers. You will work intensively in small groups. Occasionally, a guest lecturer from a company is invited to speak about their expert experiences in the world of business administration. All specializations are internationally orientated.

Waarom aan de RUG?

All five Business Administration tracks combine sound academic knowledge with practical relevance. Besides, it is an internationally accredited programme, ensuring a high quality education that meets both the AACSB and EQUIS standards, which only one percent of universities reach worldwide.

tracks

track Change Management

What are the characteristics of the most suitable change approach: planned or emergent, participatory or directive, top-down or bottom up?

Responding to the ever-changing market and new developments is essential for the survival of today's organisations. That's why change is crucial for organisations. This creates a need for change experts who know how to design and manage change processes.In the MSc CM, which is both academically rigorous and societally relevant, you will learn to deal with the complexity of organisational change as a dynamic interplay of organisational, technological, cultural and human factors. You will develop a solid understanding of the diversity in paradigms, theories and approaches that characterise the international scientific and professional field of change management as well as critical academic thinking as core elements of your professional toolkit. The programme offers you a diverse and challenging environment in which you actively and responsibly co-create your learning experiences. You will be a member of a lively learning community of dedicated students (approx. 75), staff and expert practitioners that prepares you for a career in a globalising world.

track Health

Make a difference! Add value to health and care.

How can healthcare improve health outcomes and patient experiences while containing costs and guaranteeing access for all?High-quality healthcare is a critical foundation for individual well-being and a well-functioning society. Healthcare systems require maintenance, improvement and innovation on all levels. Healthcare managers need to cope with societal challenges and deploy technological opportunities without disrupting ongoing care delivery. One challenge is our ageing society with its growing demand and rising expectations, while fewer hands are available to provide care and the costs need to be contained. How can we reconcile these tensions? Which trade-offs need to be made? The managerial challenges require a strategic vision and coordinated efforts within healthcare companies as well as with other players in this dynamic field. This creates a demand for multidisciplinary educated professionals with both analytic and managerial skills, and a crisp understanding of the social-economic environment.In the MSc BA Health you develop the key competences to understand and make a difference in this highly relevant sector. The course offerings combine healthcare management and health economics. You are provided with options to develop a more managerial or a more economic focus. Yet, you also look beyond the managerial or economic perspective: how to take the clients', clinicians', carers', and insurers' positions into regard? MSc BA Health Graduates have solidly prepared themselves to contribute to the multifaceted world of healthcare and prevention.

track Management Accounting and Control

How to support managers when they are pursuing the organizational strategy? Which information is useful to them, and how does this information affect the behaviour of employees?

MSc Management Accounting and Control (the new name of the current Organizational & Management Control) concentrates on enabling managers to achieve organizational goals. It involves studying the effectiveness and other implications of control practices. During this programme you will gain knowledge about accounting and financial management techniques. These techniques are used to provide (non-)financial information and to develop planning and control systems. You will also develop the skills needed to communicate the information in an effective manner. The techniques will be placed in a context of broader issues, such as strategy and culture, and special attention will be paid to changes in accounting systems. You will explore subjects like management accounting, financial management, management control and management of change. A combination of teaching and assessment methods is used. Every year, around 60 students follow the programme.Important to knowAs of September 1, 2019, the name of the Organizational & Management Control profile of the MSc Business Administration will change to Management Accounting and Control. With this name change, the goal is to provide you with a clearer understanding of what this master programme has to offer. The MSc BA Management Accounting and Control will enable you to connect the information needs of managers (i.e. Management Accounting) to state-of-the-art knowledge about human behaviour (i.e. Management Control). The new name highlights the accounting content of the programme, which is valued strongly by employers. Moreover, as the new name is more similar to that of comparable programmes, it will be easier for employers to recognise it. Therefore, the new name will add value to your diploma in the labour market. Please note that the content of the study programme will remain the same. This means that you will still be able to decide for yourself if you select financially-oriented electives, or choose a more general business orientation.

track Small Business & Entrepreneurship

How can small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurial firms be managed so they can be successful in the entrepreneurial economy and add value to society?

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) comprise over 95% of businesses in many countries. SMEs are renowned for their entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurial activities allow firms to remain competitive, they can create economic growth and innovation, and they can solve societal problems.You learn to understand the role SMEs and entrepreneurial firms are playing in the modern entrepreneurial economy, more importantly, the strategic and managerial challenges small business owners and entrepreneurs face. Many management programmes focus on large businesses, whereas SMEs and entrepreneurial firms have specific characteristics. You will learn about them and how small business owners and entrepreneurs can effectively manage their businesses in an increasingly complex business environment.You will link the specific theories on SMEs and entrepreneurship to practice by means of assignments and guest lectures. The programme has an international group of enthusiastic, highly-reputed lecturers with research experience and contacts in the professional field. Besides, the relatively small group of students (about 50 each year) results in a personal approach with possibilities for customization.

track Strategic Innovation Management



How do you build an organisation geared to innovation? How and with whom do you collaborate to bring new innovations to the market? And how, in a globalized world, do you protect your innovation, to make sure that you profit from it?.The MSc BA SIM deals with these challenges. It considers the whole strategic process of managing innovations within companies and between companies. The programme is structured around the following four topics: (1) where does innovation come from; (2) how can the firm organise internally for innovation; (3) how and with whom should the firm cooperate to maximise innovation; and (4) how can the firm capture value from innovation? In doing so, the aim of this programme is to teach students how to manage a firm's innovation activities, to help turn ideas into profit.The MSc BA SIM, like all of our courses, are designed and executed by a small group of top academic researchers, and our programme is, therefore, strongly research oriented. By introducing students to the state-of-the-art in academic research, the aim of the programme is to give student the necessary tools to properly understand, evaluate and solve real-life cases, and to conduct their own research.
