The MSc PHIL develops your skills in business philosophy by combining business economics and philosophy. This combination enables you to identify and solve complex challenges in private companies as well as private and public organisations through philosophical reflection and analysis applied to business theory and practices.

MSc PHIL combines philosophy and business studies. You will be trained in applying philosophical concepts, theories and analyses in the study of business practice as well as general economics.

Each course in the programme is organised as an encounter between philosophical theory and a specific theme that has relevance to business practice or general economics. The purpose is for students to attain specific knowledge about themes such as finance, leadership, Corporate Social Responsibility, money, sustainability or Human Resource Management, while providing them with methods and concepts to reflect critically on this knowledge.
