Culture, Organization and Management at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Have you ever noticed how, despite all the planning ahead, things turn out completely different from what was planned? Or how difficult it can be to get people to work together?

 

It’s complicated to get things done, to manage, to organize, because it involves people. If you’re interested in such social processes then the VU Master’s programme in Culture, Organization and Management might be just the study you’re looking for.

 

Organisations are typically messy. There’s no one-size-fits-all management solution. Cultural bias comes into play. People make mistakes. Messages get lost along the way. And it’s this very complexity that makes the programme – and what you can do with your knowledge afterwards – so exciting.

Culture, Organization and Management

Culture, Organization and Management (COM) at VU Amsterdam is like no other. It offers an unique perspective by drawing close to organisational practice. We teach you to look behind the scenes and focusing on both individual’s lived experience and the wider social context. No other university in the world offers such an ethnographic perspective on organisation and management, coupled with practical field research, grounded analysis and critical advice.

 

This is a truly multi-disciplinary programme, combining insights from different social science disciplines, like psychology, anthropology and sociology. This interdisciplinary approach helps you understand organizational problems and management issues. There are no pre-set models that will allow you to make sense of an issue – you’ll need to come up with your own solutions based on the situation, the data, and the people involved. For example, a student can carry out  field work and write a thesis on employee theft in companies. In order to tackle the issue, they receive not only facts and figures, but learn to get closer to their employees to understand why they are stealing in the first place.

 

What’s more, this is an international programme, covering global issues that affect people transnationally, as well as local issues at the level of individual groups and organisations. One of our students for excample looked at the cultural differences between the Dutch and the Japanese in a multi-national organisation. In order to solve the communication issues being experienced, she suggested to include the power structures in play and the politics within the organisation and culture.

 

Whatever the issue, our approach has a few things in common: multiple perspectives on complex problems, a critical attitude that looks both internally and externally, a self-reflexive mindset that’s sensitive to cultural bias, and an effective and engaged style of communication. Teaching students to develop a practice-based understanding of complex issues ‘from within’ and to provide distanced analysis and critical advice, the knowledge and insights gained throughout the COM programme provide graduates with new career opportunities in both public and private sectors.

Culture, Organization and Management

Having studied Culture, Organization and Management, the opportunities are diverse. All sorts of organisations are looking for your unique brand of culturally sensitive expertise.

 

Graduates from this Master’s programme go in any and every direction. Not least because almost all organisations are engaged in change processes and collaborative practices on an ongoing basis.

 

The programme’s international approach lends itself well to working abroad: around a third of our students research their thesis in another country, and a substantial number find work abroad afterwards. The focus on management is an obvious fit with consultancy, advisory and managerial roles – especially in situations where a people-focused approach is important. Plenty of graduates go on to find work in the public sector as well: from healthcare and medical professions to educational institutions. And of course some Master’s graduates continue their education and study related PhD subjects.
