MyFuture LL.M.

You have arrived at an important stage of your college education. Your final year is about to start, and pretty soon you will get your degree. After that accomplishment, you will take the first steps in your professional career. But are you well-prepared for the journey, and the encounters you might have along the way? How will you make sure that this important phase of your life will be as successful as possible?

In 2018-2019 the MyFuture program will consist of three parts with corresponding modules. Each module will highlight a different subject and/or skill.

You can sign up for an entire module or separate workshops. If you participate in four of the five workshops within a module, you are eligible for the MyFuture certificate of that module. With this certificate you can show future employers that you have worked on these specific skills during your studies.

Workshops

  • In this workshop you learn to understand and coop with diversity at work.

    Globalization internationalizes the work floor and due to this fact the 21st century work floor is more diverse than ever. Many people don’t realize the (sometimes invisible) effects that your personal environment has on your personal development. This workshop teaches you to identify these influences as well as the effect they have on your behavior and thoughts. Through this, you will be able to (start to) understand and interpret cultural differences on the work floor. Please note that this workshop is organized for both international and Dutch students and will be taught in English.

    What will I learn?

    • You will be more aware of your cultural identity and its relation to that of others.
    • You learn how to coop with differences in conception and interpretation that evolve from influences in your personal environment.
    • You will be prepared for the diverse, international work floor of tomorrow.
  • In this workshop you are challenged to reflect on your own cultural identity.

    Although this workshop complements the workshop Managing cultural differences, the focus will be on your identity specifically. Through different exercises and discussions you will find out more about yourself and how this might differ from others’ perspectives. Please note that this workshop is organized for both international and Dutch students and will be taught in English.

    What will I learn?

    • You will be more equipped to understand how you relate to other students.
    • You will be able to recognize your motives and inspirations and how to use them.
    • You will be prepared for the diverse, international work floor of tomorrow.
