Methods of business research work

This course challenges the prejudice of research being boring and demanding. It uncovers new aspects and possibilities of research that lead to important business factors in successful decision making. With this course, students have reported having higher self-confidence during meetings or when presenting improvements to an executive board. This course on business research methods represents an important building block in the study programme where students are introduced to the big picture of research, helping them to understand research requirements for their studies and for their master’s thesis.

This course aims to present the basic philosophies and approaches to research and apply the main quantitative/qualitative methods and techniques, setting clear research indicators and standards. Students have the opportunity to prepare a team research project proposal in order to learn how to prepare similar research proposals, evaluate research articles, and explore databases throughout the world to find relevant scientific and professional articles for their studies. The course expands the horizon into the world of research and exploration.

Innovation Business Processes, Relations and Models

This course takes a holistic approach to innovation development and management. Innovation is very complex and joins many important aspects of business, therefore only linear thinking and an individual approach are not enough. It takes cooperation and a systematic approach. The course is built on the precondition that innovation and innovativeness are the main factors of competitiveness. It starts with a macroeconomic view of innovation at home and in the global market by recognising indexes and indicators, and exploring supporting environments of innovation with R&D and other departments.

It includes a study of technological and service innovation and continues with an organisational view of innovation, learning about the techniques and methods of innovation management. The course/module concludes with deeper exploration and the understanding of marketing the potential innovation (market research, market strategy, market segmentation, market potential, customer value, etc.). Throughout the course, students are challenged to apply their new knowledge to case studies and to develop a team project showcasing a potential innovation.
 

9
Creative Human Resource Management for Competitive Advantages

People are a competitive advantage and a vital resource in an organisation, but are also challenging to manage, as there is no unique method. Students are challenged to look at their work place from a leadership and organisational perspective. The course on creative human resource management brings forward the importance of a strategic and systemic approach to human resource management, from recruiting and hiring, compensation, employment relationships, performance management, learning and development to providing a high quality of work life. Students have opportunities to further explore work space planning, annual employee performance reviews, the meaning of human resource management in an international context, discrimination issues, HRM policies, and other related topics. The team project allows students to prepare constructive solutions to actual HRM challenges and to practice preparing and delivering effective presentations.

9
Economics of Public Sector

The course on public sector economics focuses on the vibrant and broad subject of what is the public sector, what it encompasses, how large it should be, what role it should play, and how it should shape its programmes. There are general principles that the public sector of today observes and which had existed decades ago. In addition to the general principles, the understanding of the public sector and its role have changed through time. These changes affect the types of its activities and its functions have developed and adapted to modern demographic, social, environmental, and economic conditions in the society. This course will focus on the role and scope of the public sector, the fundamentals of economic welfare, fundamentals of public choice, public spending: healthcare, education, and defence, the fundamentals of the tax system, and taxes.

9
Advanced Technology Supported Enterprise Management

In this course, students have the opportunity to learn about information technologies (IT) from the viewpoint of the organisation. We know how to use IT in our everyday lives, but often lack the knowledge how to manage all aspects of IT systems in an organisation. This course offers a different and more systematic view of IT management with the aim of successful business activities. When they apply this knowledge to the solving of challenges in their workplace, students gain new constructive ideas on how to improve IT use in their organisations. They gain an in-depth understanding of how to manage information technology in an organisation, from purchasing to ensuring IT security. They further learn how to effectively use information, communication, and Internet technologies for managing business intelligence and knowledge. Students learn about all the crucial phases of development and sustainability of IT in an organisation and are able to immediately apply their knowledge in the work environment or organisation.

7
Organizational Dynamics and Innovative Change Management

Organisation and organisational dynamics are important factors that determine a company’s performance. They include organisational models as well as insight into management, motivation, organisational climate, teamwork, etc. Modern trends increasingly recognise the importance of a good organisational climate.
This course will help you find answers to questions what a company can change in its organisation in order to become more innovative and more successful; what are the weak points of organisation; how do management, motivation, communication, culture, etc. affect organisation; how does culture impede the innovation process; do managers facilitate innovations? What is the role of ethics in organisation?

Social Protection in Europe

The purpose of the course on social protection in Europe is for students to learn about the methods of human rights protection in the field of social protection, about social protection values and resources, and to start thinking how to creatively solve problems from the field of social protection. In the European Union, coordination of systems is predominantly present in the field of social security systems. Social security is synonymous with poverty prevention and the main objective of EU Member States is its prevention (the Lisbon Strategy).

Trends in innovative education

Education across the world, in Europe, and in Slovenia is facing the challenges of how to respond to new and continually changing educational needs. These changes are the result of changes in the demographic and social situation, the tight financing conditions in education, globalisation, and inclusion of technology in the life and actions of individuals and organisations.

The main lever of adapting education to the new reality are innovations. Similarly to other sectors, innovation in education is mostly the result of a meaningful integration of technology (the Internet, mobile devices, cloud computing) into a specific educational service or process. Innovations are of course also possible without the use of technology, also in education (e.g. the introduction of a new teaching method in class), however the majority of innovations are IT supported. The course on trends in innovative education presents the basic concepts and characteristics of open and e-learning as the leading concepts of innovation in education.

Measuring and Assuring the Quality of life

The purpose of the course is clear: to address quality of life from several perspectives, objectively and subjectively, individually and collectively, and with regard to resources, opportunities, and living conditions in the society. The course will focus on the fundamental terms and data on quality of life and deliberations on what encompasses quality of life. Do Slovenia’s development documents consider the concept of quality of life and has the state set any objectives for its citizens which will improve quality of life? If it has, are we able to realise these objectives – how to measure them, which indicators to use and what has been done in this respect? During the course, we will focus on the quality of life of individual subpopulations in Slovenia and try to establish whether they lead a quality life – what could they do themselves and why do they not do it?
Our question is whether we are ready to deal with the simple truth about the state of today’s society: about shifting of responsibility, low self-discipline, and mostly what are we willing to do in order to improve the statistical indicators for measuring quality of life.
 

7
Funding Non profit organisations

The course will focus on investments in the financial environment in general and in relation to non-profit activities:

  • Financial environment. European Economic and Monetary Union.
  • Definition of individual terms which are needed to understand the operation of finance and non-profit organisations (different legal forms of organising various activities, different forms of financing various activities on the one hand and different forms of investments on the other).
  • The EU and the EMU. The Economic and Monetary Union. EU budget. The workings of the EU financing system. Definition and possibilities of financing various (including non-profit) activities.
  • The European cohesion policy. Definition, purpose, and possibilities in general and for non-profit organisations.
  • Different national and international financial institutions. Their purpose and meaning in general and for the activity of non-profit organisations.
  • Different sources of financing (equity, debt; short-term sources, long-term sources; money market, capital market; sponsorship, donations, charitable contributions, and other transfers).

You will be able to make business decisions associated with investments. You will understand the operations of the national and international financial environment and financial institutions in relation to the activity of non-profit organisations.

7
Creative Management of Innovative Services

Innovative services are just as important as technological innovations, as all technological innovations also comprise services (e.g. research, marketing, maintenance, etc.) and through development also their improvements. Technological innovations and innovative services intertwine. The course mostly focuses on answers as to how innovations happen in the most representative service sectors such as trade, tourism, utility services, IT programming, telecommunications, education, etc. We also observe the differences among the branches and among countries. We are interested in the current trends, how they create innovations, how the invention and innovation process runs in these branches, how these branches manage innovations, what are the bottle necks and the related possibilities of improvement. Students learn about theory and best practice examples and have the opportunity to study the innovation activity of their organisation and to propose improvements.

7
Integrative project

When discovering and exploring become your partners. The Integrative Project course takes students to the next level of research methods. The course offers an in-depth understanding of business research and guides students through the different stages of research preparations for their project assignment/master’s thesis. From the outline of the paper and beyond, the course includes sampling methods, how to choose appropriate methods and techniques, data analysis techniques, software, and results interpretation to effective presentation of research results. Students are encouraged to prepare their integrative project on an actual example in the organisation, region or industry and take a critical look at other business research as well.

18
Final thesis

The Master’s Thesis is a written paper and the result of the student’s independent professional work under the supervision of a higher education teacher. In the paper, the student comprehensively covers all fields of the study programme.

With the Master’s Thesis, the student shows that they:

  • are capable of understanding and applying the content from the field covered by the study programme,
  • can use interdisciplinary and theoretical approaches to solving concrete practical problems, especially from the field of business management,
  • have mastered research methods and procedures by applying various analytical and forecasting tools,

Organization of social networks

During the Organisation of Social Networks course, students will learn about the characteristics of different types of social networks which people shape through mutual relations in different fields of their activity and in different stages of life. You will learn about the role of social networks in our lives, how they contribute to effective actions of groups and work organisations and their effect on social cohesion and community quality of life. You will also learn about various elements of social support, resources, types, and subjectively perceived effectiveness of support. You will learn about the fundamental methods of social network measurement and test them in practical assignments.

7
Theory and practice of Charity and Solidarity

In a time when it seems that economy (and with it of course economic logic or calculations) is the master of our lives, we try to take a look beyond the borders of economic criteria of life into a field where a lot is happening "for free", where money is not the only means of payment and matters run following different principles and criteria on the basis of the values of humanity. We will not only study theoretical or scientific questions on a segment of life of individuals and the society which is becoming increasingly evident in recent years, but instead the course will give you the skills and competencies that are needed for practical action in this segment of social activity.

7
Models and Tools for Effective Corporate Communication

General corporate communication and its effect on culture and performance. What is important for corporate communication? What models and tools are used for good communication? How to conduct a successful interview? What makes a successful public performance? How to prepare effective written messages? What is the effect of body language?

The mastery of communication and communication techniques as one of the most important soft skills; the course will offer an opportunity to test different communication techniques and to recognise the most effective forms of corporate communication.

7
Positive Psychology for Modern Business Management

In modern business, positive psychology is substantially gaining in importance. Positive psychology is an exciting and inspiring new branch of psychology. It builds on the positive in every individual – on their strengths and resources. The objective of positive psychology is to improve the subjective welfare (happiness) and functioning of individuals, organisations, and the community, and to enable them to flourish.
The course provides students with the opportunity to learn about the trends in positive psychology, to learn about and use mindfulness, to apply positive psychology to their work environment, to recognise their character strengths, and to test the learned aspects during teamwork.
 

7
Business for Social Responsibility and Business Ethics

Today, companies are largely aware of the importance of social responsibility and ethics. Unfortunately, social responsibility is mostly introduced into a company due to following the existing trends but without an actual understanding of the issue. As companies do not have a comprehensive strategy, their social responsibility is implemented in the form of individual actions that are not necessarily related to the company’s mission. These individual actions often stop at financing local sports associations or cultural events.
The course will offer insight into what it means to develop a comprehensive social responsibility strategy and how it is connected to business ethics. You will learn to distinguish between legislation, morals, and ethics. You will learn about good practice examples in social responsibility and business ethics both at home and at the global level.
With the year 2017, large enterprises in the EU have to report on non-financial aspects of operations. This means that in addition to economic aspects, they also have to report on the social and environmental impacts of their activities. How to do that, what to consider, and how to integrate corporate social responsibility in all processes, products, and services of the company is another aspect covered by the course.
 

7
Communication and Lobbying

Interest representation, lobbying, and negotiation techniques are widely used terms. We often hear or even use them, but do we truly understand what they mean? What is the purpose of lobbying? What is business lobbying? What is the difference between lobbying and communication with influential publics? What is the importance of negotiations for an organisation and how are they connected to communication and lobbying?
More often than we are aware, different circumstances force us to act as lobbyists or to represent our organisation in negotiations. If we cannot communicate well, we are unable to successfully present our organisation’s products, services or projects to business partners or government authorities. We will not be able to attract customers or investors and obtain the best possible position in our own work environment. As a minimum defence, we need to be familiar with lobbying and negotiation strategies and tactics that other stakeholders will often use when communicating with us. It is also important to be familiar with the criteria of ethics and legitimacy of their actions so as to be able to quickly decide how to act when faced with such challenges.
The course thus focuses on three main aspects: (1) communication with influential publics and networking, (2) interest representation and lobbying, and (3) negotiation doctrines and techniques.
 

7
Marketing of services

During the course, students will get a closer insight into the trends in sales development and management, sales management competencies, the sales management process, the definition of marketing and marketing management, marketing and marketing management development trends, the fundamental marketing concepts, the marketing environment, the connections between sales management and marketing management, services marketing planning, market measurement and sales forecasting, the employment process in marketing, and the process of analysing marketing success.

Management of e-education

There are usually a number of different groups of stakeholders participating in e-learning programmes – from students or participants, teachers and authors of learning materials, and media experts to administrative and technical staff with different tasks and activities, providers of funds, and other outsourced co-workers. The complexity of e-learning requires correct planning, management, and coordination of all participants, activities, and funds which is the task of the management.

E-learning management is responsible for the effective implementation of the main business functions of planning, management, and organisation, the same as in any other company. However, it also tackles individual specific tasks and types of management which stem from the special characteristics of e-learning. The specific tasks of management in e-learning include the provision of pedagogical, technological, and administrative support to e-learning participants. The special characteristics of e-learning require the use of specific management types and approaches such as project management, change management, innovation management, and quality management.
The E-Learning Management course aims at qualifying students for effective and successful implementation of all functions of management as a basis for effective, successful, and competitive operation of companies, public sector institutions, and other organisations, providers, and users of e-learning services.
 

7
Innovations in e-learning

In recent years, new information and communication technologies (ICT) and social software have become an effective tool for improving the quality of and facilitating access to education and training. The Innovations in E-Learning course aims at presenting the latest achievements in this field to the students, as well as their applicability for improving educational and learning processes. The course specifically focuses on the presentation and development of potentials of using innovative ICT solutions for improving education and training through all stages of a person’s life.

Familiarity with the latest educational technologies and development trends in e-learning and the ability of critical assessment, of choosing and using innovations are of key importance for increasing quality and successfully refurbishing technologically supported educational processes in professional training, higher education, and lifelong learning.

Educational policies

You will learn about the key players in educational policies at national and global level: UNESCO, OECD, EU, the World Bank, Amnesty International. The course will focus on the relationships between cultural autonomy and globalisation, centralism, regionalism, localism, and the key values of orientation of educational policies:  humanistic (person-centred) and mercantile orientation (market-centred), conservatism and liberalism; international comparisons of education (PIRLS, TIMSS, PISA) as a type of influence exerted by global players (OECD, the World Bank, the EU Commission) on national school policies at primary, secondary, and tertiary level. You will explore education from the viewpoints of justice and effectiveness, and focus on strategies of lifelong learning of company employees.

7
Knowledge management and learning organisation

On a daily basis, companies and other organisation are tackling challenges that can be mastered only by highly educated and motivated employees. The future of an organisation strongly depends on the ability of the individual, the team, and the organisation as a whole to learn. The fast changes in the environment and continually new information require employees to continually engage in permanent education, training, and advanced training at or outside of work so as to keep abreast with the process of changes and improvements of the organisation. In this respect, e-learning or technologically supported learning is gaining in importance and becoming a significant addition to conventional learning. The Knowledge Management and a Learning Organisation course aims at presenting the achievements in this field and their applicability for individuals and organisations as a whole. We believe that the knowledge and ability to use the latest concepts, models, and technologies in e-learning, knowledge management, and a learning organisation represent the key to a successful operation of a modern organisation.

7
Models and Tools for Effective Corporate Communication

General corporate communication and its effect on culture and performance. What is important for corporate communication? What models and tools are used for good communication? How to conduct a successful interview? What makes a successful public performance? How to prepare effective written messages? What is the effect of body language?

The mastery of communication and communication techniques as one of the most important soft skills; the course will offer an opportunity to test different communication techniques and to recognise the most effective forms of corporate communication.
