During the first semester (period 1 and 2) SHRM students attend two courses on academic and professional skills, together with students from the other USG Master’s programmes. In the academic year 2019-2020 the courses Intercultural skills and Consultancy are open for all students while English-spoken.

Dutch-speaking students in the SHRM Master’s programme can also opt for one of the other academic and professional skills courses: vaardighedenonderwijs.

The LEG Skills Academy enables you to develop skills from other scientific disciplines in addition to your own Master programme. Students in Governance, Economics and Law are welcome to join the LEG Skills Academy.

The LEG Skills Academy offers small modules of 2.5 EC on honours level, during which you will learn beyond the confines of your own field of study. In term 4 a pilot will start with two brand new modules on the topic of digitalisation. Each module consists of four meetings.

The modules are closely related to each other, but you can also register for the modules separately.

Introduction to operational skills in a digital technology, LEG.SA.001
This module by Wolter Hassink (U.S.E.) and Sebastiaan Tieleman (U.S.E.) introduces methods to utilise and visualise large data sets. Furthermore, you will broaden your understanding of algorithms and artificial intelligence.

Data, algoritmen en digitaal bestuur, LEG.SA.002

In this module (in Dutch) you will explore together with Erna Ruijer (USG) and Stefan Kulk (Law) the opportunities and risks of digitalisation of governments from both a governance and legal perspective. You will think in greater depth about how to deal with these risks.

Are you interested, please register for one or both modules. The number of places available is limited. Meetings will be scheduled on Tuesdays between 5 and 7 pm.

You can register here. You are able to register until Thursday 8 April 2021.
