Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122.

Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122. So what now? For a deeper understanding of these new challenges – unavoidable crises aside – knowledge in communication sciences, cultural sciences and political sciences are imperative. Medialization in the form of "CEO branding" and the harmonization of "product-, equity- and employer branding" within the national culture are as much part of the challenge faced by today's top decision-makers as interaction with political networks, regulation and deregulation trends, privatization initiatives and public-private partnerships. Since 2003, ZU has reacted to these challenges with a new (by German standards) type of research-oriented business qualification for generalists. The novelty lies in the combination of business administration and economics with cultural studies, communication and media studies, as well as aspects of political science and public administration. A program that questions the economy. We have already had enough answers. The pro­fes­sors know this one best: What are the eight most im­por­tant ques­tions oc­cu­py­ing the fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics? Sus­tain­able or­ga­ni­za­tions What will fu­ture or­ga­ni­za­tions be like after years of on­go­ing re­or­ga­ni­za­tion? Net­worked or in­for­mal? Global cap­i­tal mar­kets What will the new order of glob­al­ized fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions look like? How can it be suit­ably reg­u­lated? En­tre­pre­neur­ship What might a 21st cen­tury en­tre­pre­neur­ial sci­ence look like? What will dis­tin­guish the next busi­ness mod­els in a so­cial, cul­tural and po­lit­i­cal sphere from the past? Fam­ily busi­nesses What does a spe­cific busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion course for fam­ily busi­nesses com­prise? How do fam­ily busi­nesses com­mu­ni­cate; how are they or­ga­nized and fi­nanced; how do they grow; how do they fail? In­no­va­tion and tech­nol­ogy man­age­ment How can the man­age­ment of ex­ter­nal cre­ativ­ity be achieved? Which "so­cial in­no­va­tions" do we need for tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ments?

Programme objectives RESD graduates will be able to critically evaluate the qualitative and quantitative implications of environmental policies and to autonomously produce, research and forecast concerning the evolution of markets for natural resources and to contribute to the design, production and marketing of products compatible with the sustainability of natural resources. RESD courses will provide an in-depth analysis of natural resources, taking into account the institutional setup of markets and the competitive strategies of firms. Overview The Paris Climate Agreement reached at COP21 last December 2015 reinforced the objective of keeping global temperature rise well below 2 C - and even further to 1.5 C above pre-industrial levels. According to the Copenhagen-based European Environment Agency (EEA), Europe has improved air and water quality, cut greenhouse gas emissions and improved waste recycling and waste management practices in recent years. But new, more courageous policies have to be implemented by the European Union to reach the ambitious goals of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% compared with 1990 levels by 2030, and by 80-95% by 2050. Moreover, by 2030 the European Union aims to increase energy efficiency by at least 27% and to increase the share of consumption from renewable energy sources to at least 27%.The European Commission has estimated that the long term shift to a greener, low-carbon economy by 2050 will require investments of an extra 270 billion euros a year (1.5 per cent of EU gross domestic product). These investment, together with national policies and investments aim at turning Europe into a low-carbon and highly energy efficient economy and will boost the economy, create jobs and strengthen the countries’ competitiveness. Environmental economists with a strong background in economics and management, able to interact with engineers and chemists, thus with an interdisciplinary educational background, will play a crucial role in this process. This is the profile of RESD graduates, who are able to employ tools and standard methods in economics and management to environmental and resources related issues. The main fields in which the environmental economist can be involved are the followings: Waste management will become an ever-important regulatory function at the local level. Agencies that manage waste both in Italy and in other European countries are facing increasing legislative and legal actions. Some of these agencies have sophisticated staff structures that employ environmental economists along with the usual unit of planners, and accountants. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to companies that take responsibility for their impact on society. Empirical evidence suggests that CSR is increasingly important for firms’ competitiveness. In 2014 the European Parliament ruled that disclosure of information on environmental, labor and human rights impact becomes mandatory for large companies. This will further the diffusion of CSR practices and enlarge CSR units in companies. Environmental protection/natural resource economics, such as the introduction of environmentally friendly processes and practices within the local area to safeguard the economic sustainability of the businesses against rising expectations and the awareness of local inhabitants and companies for environmentally friendly behavior is commonly conducted by both, local governments and private enterprises; these activities necessitate of decision makers with the knowledge of decision making tools and environmental valuation methods. Environmental and eco-innovation consulting has become a lucrative field and today some of the larger firms are hiring environmental economists. In some cases an environmental economist can have an impact on the planning outcome and on project mitigation where some development features have an adverse environmental impact. Moreover, in several situations, eco-innovations and firms redesigning of their production process require a careful life-cycle assessment of products. Project management/Strategic planning specialist/Urban economist opportunities arise for environmental economists within some of international agencies such as World Bank and its subsidiaries; some other opportunities lie in far off units of the non-profit world (conservation organizations and NGOs). Food and agricultural economics is one area where sustainability issues of practices related to food safety, crop fertilization and food production are of strategic importance and environmental and resource economists will play a crucial role in this field. Energy economics and policy: An Energy Economist plays a crucial role in the area of energy- economy-environment. S/he provides authoritative and objective information on supply and use of energy and highlights the opportunities and risks in today’s energy world. Climate Change: Both industrialized and developing countries are increasingly focusing on the need for mitigation and adaptation strategies in relation to climate change. This course aims to present, discuss and analyze different perspectives on global environmental change in general, and climate change, in particular. It covers themes such as (1) the vulnerability of communities in different parts of the world to the combined impacts of environmental and non-environmental stress, (2) international, regional and national adaptation policies, (3) interlinkages between environmental change mitigation and adaptation.

Masters in Economics in Europe 2017. The effectiveness and legitimacy of modern states is largely determined by the complex interaction of politics, law, and business and economics. Lately, in particular, these interactions have been affected by dynamic transformation processes resulting from globalization and internationalization trends. This has led to the formation of modified statehood forms and new patterns of relationships between state, society and the economy. The Master's degree in Political Science – Public Economics, Law and Politics applies a theoretical and methodological, as well as problem-oriented and integrated, political analysis of these dynamic interactions. CONTENT AND RATIONALE Studies in political science at Leuphana Graduate School combine disciplines, which traditionally deal with the relationship of state, society, and business and economics. Questions, issues and approaches to solutions resulting from these intricately interwoven relationships are analyzed and treated from the joined perspectives of political science, economics and law. The focus is placed on the causes, background, as well as social and economic effects and consequences, of government action. Thus, the course aims at achieving a comprehensive reflection on the relationship between politics, law and economics by applying the tools provided by political science as a discipline, reinforced by interdisciplinary observations. This course of study is part of the scholarship program Public Policy and Good Governance of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Every year, DAAD selects around ten scholarship holders from Central and South American, African and Asian countries to come and study at Leuphana Graduate School. They enhance the experience of studying on this program by lending it an international perspective. [-]
