Paula Litvinaitė, student Management of International Social Challenges
Management of International Social Challenges is not just a Bachelor programme but something that you want to be identified with.
The programme of Management of International Social Challenges exceeds the boundaries of building only academic knowledge and develop a character and attitude, necessary for our future careers. Combined with opportunities that Erasmus University provides, it creates an excellent experience that is not only joyful but also extremely useful in a professional path.
Our courses are designed to help us understand, analyse and manage recent and still relevant events, processes and systems. We take an event which has happened recently, and we look at the theory behind it. How can we explain it? Has this happened before? How do you tackle it? Our learning goals are built on these questions. Consequently, it constitutes to what we would do in the future and provides an opportunity to apply theory in practice, and the other way around. Depending on the course, we are often called and held to be future “administrators”, “counsellors”, “managers”, “diplomats”.
Small groups of students during classes facilitate a deeper understanding of the topic and builds incredibly valuable relationships with both tutors and fellow students. That relationship constitutes to our mentality and a joint goal to learn as much as possible during the three years of bachelor. Our professors and tutors always help outside the classroom, motivate us and give us opportunities to explore more than what is given by the providing information. Besides that they are giving extra lectures about relevant literature and events.
All of the above make the MISOC programme and its students unique. Genuine interest in each other and a fundamental goal to help those who are less fortunate than us creates a bond and spirit that is beyond measurement. Management of International Social Challenges is not just a Bachelor programme but something that you want to be identified with.
