3.0/2.0 VO Evolutionarly Economics 3.0/2.0 SE Computational Economics SBA/AEI - Advanced Economics - International Economics ECTS-Credits: 6.0 Summary: This module builds on standard macroeconomic theory and extends it to cover questions of open economies. A concise introduction to the pure theory of international trade is oered via classical presentations, including a discussion of its applications and its critique. The complementing seminar has the goal to show how this theoretical knowledge is used in some macroeconomic simulation models actually applied for policy consulting. Students understand, condense, summarise and present scientic research papers. Each year a dierent economic policy focus (e.g., European labour markets, eurozone stability, etc.) is chosen for the seminar.

3.0/2.0 VU Advanced Financial Planning and Control 3.0/2.0 VU Risk-based Performance Management SBA/ORG - Organization ECTS-Credits: 6.0 Summary: What are organizations, how are they designed and how do they interact with their environment? These questions are simple but provoking. This module is aimed at giving students the possibility to discuss alternative answers to these question. It helps students to increase their abilities to understand complex organized behavior. It oers not only a series of dierent theoretical lenses useful for explaining organizations from multiple perspectives but also a set of tools to design and manage organizations. To a large extent the courses rely on experiential learning techniques including individual as well as team assignments, role plays and simulations in-class, group discussions, and presentations.

Learning Outcomes:

Knowledge:

• Advanced knowledge in organization theory and advanced knowhow in the management of people and organizations

Skills:

• Ability to evaluate and design organizations (its structures and processes) from dierent perspectives

• Ability to critically discuss and evaluate alternative or conicting theories and concepts

• Advanced management skills

Competences:

• Teamwork and conict management competences

Syllabus:

• Managing people and organizations: This course deals with problems concerning the selection and management of various dimensions and components of organizational structure and culture. An appropriate organizational design allows organizations to continually adapt to a changing global environment and to balance internal needs and external pressures to survive in the long run. A key element is therefore to understand how organizations can be designed and managed for a better performance. The aim is to demonstrate the interconnectedness between structure and performance. Accordingly, it is important to bring an awareness of the intended as well as unintended consequences of organizational design and leadership decisions. The concepts involved focus on organizational strategy, design, culture, and change, as well as leadership and performance. Using Case-Study Method (Harvard) and actual cases from practice, students learn how to resolve problems related to organizational design and change. Students work individually and in teams, prepare case studies, and present problem solutions during class.

• Organization theory: The course oers a series of dierent theoretical lenses useful for explaining organizations from multiple perspectives to help students to increase their ability to understand complex organized behavior. We approach the dierent perspectives on organizations through reading and discussing seminal contributions in the eld of organization theory. By analyzing and comparing underlying assumptions and theoretical positions of texts of economic theories, modern organization theories, organization theories of the interpretive and social constructionist paradigm as well as postmodern perspectives we develop a deeper understanding of dierent schools of thought. Students read the texts prior to lectures, write papers to selected texts, and share their thoughts with colleagues in class discussions.

Expected Prerequisites: Basic knowledge in the management of socio-economic systems as well as tools and instrument necessary of human resource management.

Those topics are taught in the module BAE/MGT - Management.

Teaching and Learning Methods and Adequate Assessment of Performance: The module is organized along lectures, reading assignments in self organized acquisition of new knowledge, interactive sections through case studies, teamwork, and take-home exercises.

The costs of automation, then, are not only the costs of the...»
