Culture, Organization and Management (MSc)

In the one-year Master’s programme in Culture, Organization and Management (COM), students learn to approach organizations first and foremost as processes of organizing, that is the way groups of people interact in specific organizational settings. Organizing is seen as a meaning-making process taking place between members in organizations, and between organizations in local as well as transnational contexts. Given this focus on meaning-making, culture is considered the principal dimension of any organization. Academically, the programme rests upon a long-standing ethnographic tradition, offering a unique niche in organizational research and enabling students to critically study organizational processes with the help of ethnographic research methods.
