Department

Faculteit der Managementwetenschappen

The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) is an academic centre of research and higher education, focusing on institutional and managerial issues within complex organisations. There are seven disciplines within the NSM: Business Administration, Public Administration, Political Science, Economics and Business Economics, Social and Political Sciences of the Environment, Human Geography, and Spatial Planning.

The NSM strives for a multidisciplinary approach. The educational programme is characterised by small-scale teaching and provides a stimulating learning environment with an emphasis on the development of academic skills. The NSM employs 270 FTEs, 75% of whom are academics. Currently, the NSM has approximately 4,800 students. The NSM’s research activities fall under the responsibility of the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research (IMR). Under the motto ‘Creating Knowledge for Society’, the IMR focuses on academic research into the development, design and effectiveness of the public and private structures that regulate, govern or manage human interactions. The debate on the fundamentals of academic research in the domains covered by the NSM is organised in the IMR Academy; the PhD programme is organised in the IMR Doctoral School. There are six multidisciplinary research groups at the IMR linked to strategic and scientifically and societally relevant issues. The IMR also hosts the Individual Decision lab and the Group Decision lab, which are especially suited for studying collaboration in complex contexts and collective decision-making.

The Department of Business Administration is responsible for the BSc programmes in Business Administration (including a full track offered in English, and a track in International Business Administration) as well as eight specialisations within the MSc programme in Business Administration (all in English). The department’s interdisciplinary research programme is called Responsible Organisation and addresses the multiple values underlying responsibility, the conditions required to realise those values and the interventions geared to the transition of organisations towards responsible organisations. The Department of Business Administration co-creates knowledge with multiple stakeholders in the wider community to ensure the impact of its academic work.

The Assistant Professor of Organisation Design and Development will be positioned in the Chair of Organisation Design and Development, which is part of the Department of Business Administration. The group is responsible for several courses in the Department's Bachelor's degree programme and the Master's specialisation in Organization Design and Development. The Master's specialisation in Organisation Design and Development focuses on how organisations relate to society, how they can structure their work processes to become responsible and on how we can understand and shape change processes in and across organisations. The research of the group contributes to the Responsible Organisation research programme of the Department of Business Administration, in particular on the conditions required to realise multiple value creation and the transition process towards Responsible Organisations. Members of the group have published in high-impact journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, Organization Studies, Journal of Business Ethics, MISQ and Administrative Science Quarterly.
