Have you ever noticed how, despite all the planning ahead, things turn out completely different from what was planned? Or how difficult it can be to get people to work together?
It’s complicated to get things done, to manage, to organize, because it involves people. If you’re interested in such social processes then the VU Master’s programme in Culture, Organization and Management might be just the study you’re looking for.
Organisations are typically messy. There’s no one-size-fits-all management solution. Cultural bias comes into play. People make mistakes. Messages get lost along the way. And it’s this very complexity that makes the programme – and what you can do with your knowledge afterwards – so exciting.
