BTC365的国际管理硕士项目主任讨论了该项目在21世纪处理复杂问题的独特方法.

让BTC365从你的研究背景开始吧.

我拥有管理和组织研究的博士和硕士学位,并在多个领域担任组织研究者和管理顾问超过30年的工作经验, 包括水管理, 人为气候变化, 卫生保健, 和知识机构. My research involves the underst和ing of complex thinking 和 coping with complex issues. 社会复杂性理论认为因果关系不是简单的线性的,而是不可分割的,相互交织的. Many of the problems we’re facing today as a society are what we term wicked problems, 这意味着它们受到许多相互依赖的因素的影响,使它们看起来不可能解决. 人为气候变化就是最突出的例子. In the MSIM program, we aim to prepare students to tackle such problems.

因此项目的座右铭是, enseigner一种生活乐趣也就是“学会生活”.

“学习生活,” a position coined by the French sociologist 和 philosopher Edgar Morin, 对BTC365的教育教学法有什么好的描述吗. BTC365教授传统的管理策略和更关键的方法,如社会复杂性理论和商业伦理. 这才是这个项目的核心和灵魂所在:BTC365希望学生们思考人类如何能在这个星球上以一种更好的方式生活. 在处理复杂问题时, BTC365不应该把它们简单化, isolated cause-和-effect chains; we should always allow more context. 在BTC365, we educate our students to face the challenges of the 21st century, 这样他们就能在商业道德上表明立场, 可持续性, 和 人为气候变化 alongside managing 和 organizational strategy.

什么样的学生最适合MSIM?

We have students from varied backgrounds who arrive in 巴黎 for all kinds of reasons. 一些人在学士课程结束后继续他们的学业, 而另一些人则已经有了职业生涯,正在寻找新的角色或领域. 的re are as many reasons to come to the program as students who sign up! We have segmented our audience based on our experiences: the “liberal arts manager,” who comes out of undergraduate programs; the “career-pivoter” 和 the “tool-seeker,” who want to add management into their mix of previous education 和 professional experiences; 和 the “second-chancer” 和 "meaning-seeker,” motivated students who are not sure what they want to do with their lives. BTC365BTC365的学生身上学到了很多东西,从他们来之前的管理经验中也学到了很多. BTC365所要求的只是参与.

MSIM程序的独特之处?

BTC365与传统商学院的区别在于,BTC365是一所小大学的小项目, 这允许学生之间进行高水平的互动和更大程度的师生合作. We also embed ourselves in a liberal arts tradition, by which I mean we are interdisciplinary. 学生 bring their narratives 和 takes on the world into the classroom discussion. BTC365探索不同的教学方法, 强调从实践经验中学习, 学习之旅, 基于项目的方法, 与活生生的客户合作,以克服理论和实践经验之间的差距. BTC365也非常重视学生的学习目标,并对课程进行适当的调整.

这个项目的国际化程度如何?

首先,由于BTC365的课程设置. BTC365提出, 例如, case studies with an international context; we don’t only focus on Europe or America. Secondly, because the students come from all corners of the planet. It also helps that we are in 巴黎, one of the world’s archetypal international cities.

是什么区别了程序的三个轨道?

In all three tracks, we have core courses that provide an overview of general management. 的 可持续发展系统跟踪非政府组织与使命型管理轨道 不同之处在于通过案例研究关注具体问题, 指导研究, 以及基于项目的教学法. 具体的选修课被纳入核心要求, 课堂上使用的例子集中在选定的领域. You earn a specific diploma tailored to those particular management issues. 的re are lots of opportunities to adapt what you are studying to your personal interests.

在BTC365工作对你个人有什么吸引力?

BTC365教书的时候, 对我来说, 是生活的, I’d also like to mention the incredible support I receive from my colleagues. 我是一个很棒的部门的一员, 和 that’s been very helpful when taking on the role of program director. 这是我的同事们共同努力的结果——与BTC365周围的世界相互接触,转化为各种各样的知识概念. 的 previous program director, Professor Robert Earhart, left me with an impressive legacy. BTC365建立在伟大的基础上, 尽管总会有挑战, 这个项目正在以非常有建设性的方式向前发展.

该项目新增的内容之一是一项涉及合作发表的定向研究. 这本书的计划是如何产生的?

In May 2020, a student approached us 和 asked if we could run a project over the summer. Soon, other students joined in with a directed study, helping to create a book for publication. 书中提出COvid-19是一次带妆彩排 为未来的各种社会和环境问题, BTC365已经开始在极端天气的表现中看到了什么, 例如. We look at how we can strategize 可持续性 in a post-Covid world. BTC365的学生通过这个项目做得非常好, but it often stays anonymous; a publication was a great way to ensure students’ work could be brought to the world. all这些学生现在都可以说自己是出版作家了,因为有一个学生主动联系了. We’re already working on a second book project – I like that kind of emergence.
