Rapid advancements in technology, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and algorithms, change the organisation of work. This raises questions on the individual, organisational, and societal level. For example:
How does AI reshape collaboration and communication among employees?
Are hierarchical relationships at work restructured by robotisation?
Does platform station influence our understanding of self-employed workers?
The programme provides you with multiple perspectives and tools to study digital technologies in the changing world of work (building on insights from Psychology, Sociology, and Public Administration).
Why study Master in Organisational Dynamics in the Digital Society?
If you’re interested in how algorithms (re)shape the way we work, how robotisation is changing relationships among people, or how platformisation is influencing our perceptions of organising and organisations, this master programme is for you. It deals with technologies which have been at the forefront of the popular and academic imagination, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and algorithms.
The programme elaborates on questions such as the type of work that is affected by these technologies and how, the kind of perspectives and (in)equalities this brings about and for whom, the ethical and privacy concerns that may rise, and how we might deal with the consequences of these technologies on the individual, organisational, and societal level. It provides you with tools to navigate these issues, to develop your own understanding of them and to be able to advance technological interventions or intervene in them.
