Management Research & Development

Master Programmes

StatMind has developed two Master Programs.

  1. Master of Business Research (MRes)
  2. Master of Business Analytics 
The MRes programme is aimed at junior and senior researchers who aspire a career in academic or applied professional research. An interesting option is to have the MRes programme as an integrated part of our doctoral programmes. The MRes is a valuable degree in its own right, and exposes researchers to cutting edge knowledge on research methodology; innovative techniques; and research on topics relevant to the African region.
The program is based on Topics, Techniques and Tools.
  • StatMind has its own research centers, and is a platform for research on topics like competitiveness, international trade, high performance organizations, microfinance, talent management, corruption, and many more ...
  • We introduce you to advanced, and innovative techniques, including data mining, predictive analytics, business dynamics and business forecasting. These topics will be explained at an intuitive level: the focus is on application, and understanding of the concepts, rather than on the mathematics behind the techniques.
  • StatMind offers candidates the tools (software and analyzable data sets) to conduct research at the highest level. For example, students have access to well-documented data sets on international trade; (global data on) high performance organizations; and microfinance impact studies. Students can make use of (training in) the best statistical software: Stata, and R.
The two Master programs consist of many mandatory and elective courses. For a selection of courses, workshops are held for both degree and non-degree candidates. We also tailor the workshops to the needs of your organization, in "in-company" workshops or training (or "in-university" sessions for faculty and students.)
