The CULTURAL CHANGE & SOCIETY specialization

People are not machines. No matter how much "classical" management studies try to convince you otherwise. You can only become a successful manager when you truly understand people, how they shape and are shaped by culture, and how society as a whole progresses. So you will learn to care for and relate to the life-worlds of people in order to accompany and actively design change.

Julia Csatary, Management (M.A.)

"Cultural Change & Society is the most diverse and interesting course I have ever taken – if you are interested in cultural changes and its impact on society, go for it!"
