New master programmes

Seven new masters are being developed, all focused on relevant social themes and linked to our four strategic pillars. The new masters are interdisciplinary. As a result, students develop a variety of skills, are trained from different perspectives, and acquire knowledge of various research methods.

Three master specialisations have started in September 2019:

New knowledge lab with the City of Rotterdam

Based on the strategic pillars, a new knowledge lab has been started with the City of Rotterdam: Organisations in a Smart City.

The goal is to bring (academic) knowledge and practice together. The focus will be on the current theme of changes in work and organisation in an age of digitalisation and ‘platformisation’ of the economy.
