System Dynamics

Another term for System Dynamics is model based analysis and policy design. The System Dynamics method is applied in almost all areas of research and planning and is used to guide information search, to formulate models, perform analysis, and to facilitate learning and policy implementation. The method helps solve complex problems within disciplines and it provides a unifying language that stimulates and facilitates interdisciplinary work and education.

We offer two master programmes in System Dynamics: M.Phil. System Dynamics and Joint European Master.
