Why study System Dynamics at UiB?
The Masters program in System Dynamics at UiB is a high-level, interdisciplinary educational program, but it is also a vibrant, multicultural community.
In a complex and developing world, we need theories, methods, and tools to help us understand, manage, and communicate effectively. System dynamics studies how and why things change over time. System Dynamics is a tool for the development of a well-balancedset of policies to guide decision making that altogether contributes asuccessful strategy causing a favorable development over time.
- Which policies cause the most favourable development overtime?
- How do we avoid shaping strategies, policies and decisions based on misperceptions? And how do we assess their consequences effectively before implementing them in our social context?
- What is the wider impact of our decisions over a longer timespan?
To answer questions such as these, you are trained to develop simulation models that represent the cause-and-effect structure of the systems studied, to derive their dynamics by way of simulation, and to investigate the relationship between the two. We offer a vibrant, international student life focusing on the study of System Dynamics - a study available to very few students across the world. We use state-of-the-art learning technology and client-basedcase studies. Plus, as of 2020, we offer a fully online version of ourmaster program.

Studying at UiB, you always feel supported to explore the incredible world of System Dynamics and to find your own position in it. The knowledge and skills I have acquired both from formal teaching and interactions with my peers across disciplinary boundaries, have made these studies one of the most rewarding experiences I ever had!
