Why study the Business Administration - Business Analysis and Modelling  specialisation at Radboud University ?

  • This specialisation combines system dynamics (analysis) with group model building (facilitation). You will learn how to apply analysis in a social setting: communicating results, facilitating group sessions, creating consensus and commitment.
  • We emphasise the importance and advantages of corporate social responsibility; meaning that you will learn how to include and even involve all stakeholders in your corporate decision-making and not just those with a financial interest.
  • We look beyond the private sector, also giving examples how business analysis can be applied in issues in the (semi-)public sector. For example, how a public housing association can increase safety in the neighbourhood (and therefore living standard) by collaborating with residents, the police and the municipality.

Career prospects

After graduating, most Business Analysis and Modelling students find employment at advisory bureaus or the strategic planning departments of large companies. Some are self-employed and run their own businesses, mostly in the area of consulting. A few go on to do a traineeship or pursue a PhD in Business Administration.
