The Erasmus Mundus Master in System Dynamics: new, enriching and international
Four universities in Europe will launch the first joint, integrated European master programme in System Dynamics in August 2010.
The programme, offered by universities of Palermo (Italy), Bergen (Norway), Lund (Sweden) and Radboud University Nijmegen (the Netherlands) is specifically designed for students who are interested in learning how to initiate strategic change in organisations through the use of computer simulation models.
The programme will provide students with specific skills in Policy Modelling with System Dynamics as well as the intercultural knowledge required to apply these skills at an international level. Students will stay at three of the four different universities for a whole semester, beginning in Bergen, then either in Lund or Palermo, and finally in Nijmegen and use the fourth semester to write their thesis at one of the four universities. This way they will benefit from a broad range of social and cultural offerings. Being part of an international community of students will be an enriching experience for each individual student. Associated members to the programme are the Department of Public Administration and Policy, State University of New York, The School of Systems, Universidad Nacional de Colombia and Faculty of Computers and Information, Cairo University.
The programme has Erasmus Mundus scholarships on offer! For more information check the website at www.europeansystemdynamics.eu
