Courses within the study tour


Study Tour Preparation (188084)

Term: 3 and 4 of year 2009/2010
Size: 5ECTS

Information from VIST: This course concerns the preparation of an international study tour. The lectures provide the introduction into the approach of international study tours and the management science models that can be employed. Next, literature studies are carried out on national (macro-) and sector (meso-) level resulting in a paper. The macro papers address the political, economic, socio-cultural and technological aspects as well as their implications for the study tour theme. The meso papers present the characteristics of different sectors; the companies and organizations to be visited lead the selection of sectors. Both the macro and the meso study make comparisons with the Netherlands in order to arrive at insights into the similarities and differences between the countries and their causes. The results are reported in papers and in oral presentations to the study tour group (both in English). The final part of this course concerns the preparation of the content of the study tour visits (micro level) by formulating questions and reporting guidelines.

As electives in my master

The masters MBI and HMI have the following courses that can be used to place the research within your master.

- Research topics (239950) for BIT/TBK topics
- Research topics (219950) for HMI/CS topics

The study tour will search for a professor that guaranties the correct qualitylevel. We wish to make the course similar to the two minorcourses. Deadlines etc. will be the same because students will have to participate with each other.
