Purpose and description of the course
From the spring semester 2022, you must have started all other courses before you can register for the master’s module.
The master’s module intends to form a framework for the master’s writing process and provide input for essential parts of the work on the master’s dissertation. The master module provides input for especially the work with problem formulation, process, data collection, data analysis. The individual workshops serve as milestones for the master’s thesis work via smaller assignments which must be handed in, in connection with workshops and by looking forward to the next phase in the process.
The Academic Regulation stipulates that the purpose of the master’s project is for students to demonstrate competence in preparing a problem formulation, analyze/process the problem formulation, collect relevant empirical data and data for answering the problem formulation and report the results of the project work on the basis of their own study plan and the previously completed subjects. The master’s project must also demonstrate that the students can reflect on the problem’s relationship to their own professional development, their own organization or role as a leader.
Criteria for goal fulfillment for the master project
The students must be able to demonstrate an overview of context, relevant theories, relevant methodologies and analysis strategies for dealing with the project’s problem formulation.
The students must be able to demonstrate competence in analyzing, describing, discussing and evaluating the chosen organizational context for the project.
The students must be able to document and analyze their own professional or managerial development in relation to the specific design of the master’s project.
Requirements for registration
In order to be able to register for the master's project, you must at least have completed the teaching in all other MBD courses (2x mandatory courses, 4x core courses and 18 ECTS elective courses).
There is no limit to the number of students on the master's module. However, the first workshop already takes place at the end of the previous semester, in order to give you extra time for the process. We therefore recommend that you register for the master's project as soon as the registration opens.
