The Bachelor’s program in Global Management of Social Issues (GMSI) offered by Tilburg University has a strong focus on complex questions that are relevant to today’s societies in an increasingly global world.
The Bachelor’s program in Global Management of Social Issues (GMSI) includes human resource studies, organization studies, and sociology. It is therefore perfect for highly-motivated students who are interested in the field of social sciences and who are aware that many complex issues in today’s society ask for a multidisciplinary approach. It is also perfect for students who are up for an intellectual challenge and who want to find an internationally-oriented job that combines all three specializations.
This multidisciplinary program will enhance and broaden your analytical skills. Moreover, the international classroom setting will provide you with exposure to both national and international perspectives on complex global challenges. The lively discussions in the lecture room, composed of internationally-minded students with diverse backgrounds and nationalities, often stimulates enthusiastic and all-round debates after class.
The fact that you can think beyond the limits of one specialization makes sure that you can be employed in different companies, departments and projects in international environments and organizations.
You could work, as a consultant or human resource manager in an international organization, connecting people in order to create the most competent team to solve complex problems. Or you could work as a fund-raiser and help find a solution for poverty, or help introduce sustainable practices in supply chains. As a project manager, you can make sure that projects run smoothly and produce the best possible results.
