The European Master programme in System Dynamics aims to prepare students for an international career in strategic modelling with System Dynamics. The programme will teach the foundations of system dynamics modelling and how to apply SD modelling to a variety of real life complex problems. The second year is dedicated to learning how to facilitate the model building process with clients. These skills will enable students to develop the flexibility required to be successful within European and global organisations, whether it be major consultancy firms, strategic planning departments of larger corporations or in public administrations or NGOs. Our tight links with several major firms in the countries involved in the programme, will allow for work on real life cases and will build links to the professional field.
Due to the broad overview acquired and the systemic approach that is followed in the programme, graduates will also be qualified for more entrepreneurial tasks, either in starting their own enterprise or within established companies. The programme also lays a foundation for further studies (Ph.D).
