M.Sc POLITICAL-SCIENCE – Leadpreneur
The MSc Political Science will allow you to apply theories, methods, techniques and concepts to a range of substantive problems, as well as developing analytical skills in key areas of political science research.
You will also have the opportunity to focus your studies on either political analytics or media and democracy. Focusing on data analytics will allow you to expand your analytical abilities through game theory and will give you the opportunity to work with different types of data relevant for quantitative political research and use different types of statistical research methods to answer research questions and test theoretical hypotheses.

the SHRM model into a wider global context. In doing so, we make a distinction between international HRM and comparative HRM. The subject matter of the former revolves around the issues and problems associated with the globalization of capitalism. Comparative HRM, on the other hand, focuses on providing insights into the nature of, and reasons for, differences in HR practices across national boundaries.
Existing conceptualizations of SHRM are predicated upon the traditional rational perspective to managerial decision-making – definable acts of linear planning, choice and action – but critical organizational theorists have challenged these assumptions, arguing that strategic decisions are not necessarily based on the output of rational
calculation. The assumption that a firm’s business-level strategy and HR system have a logical, linear relationship is questionable given the evidence that strategy formulation is informal, politically charged and subject to complex contingency factors (Bamberger & Meshoulam, 2000; Monks & McMackin, 2001; Whittington, 1993). As
such, the notion of consciously aligning business strategy and HR strategy applies only to the ‘classical’ approach to strategy (Legge, 1995). Those who question the classical approach to strategic management argue that the image of the manager as a reflective planner and strategist is a myth. Managerial behaviour is more likely to be uncoordinated, frenetic, ad hoc and fragmented (for example Hales, 1986).
Internationalization does not only affect policy sectors that are generally associated with externalities, e.g. environmental policy, but also policy fields with no immediate international connection, e.g. social policy (cf. Jahn 2006). Yet, internationalization is a highly complex phenomenon with varying effects on different policy sectors and states. To disentangle the mechanisms behind internationalization, we rely on the concepts introduced by Holzinger and Knill (2005), who distinguish between
(2) international harmonization,
(3) regulatory competition, and
(4) transnational communication.
While we scrutinized rather generally the different stages of policy-making in the first section, we now refine our analytical focus and examine how certain structures in different countries can impact policy decisions. In doing so, we concentrate on institutions, cognitive and normative determinants, and national policy styles.
What are the main characteristics of policy-making? Basically, three features can be identified. First, policy-making occurs in presence of multiple constraints, e.g. shortage of time and resources, public opinion, and of course the constitution. Secondly, policy-making involves the existence of various policy processes. Governments are not unitary actors but consist of different departments that overlap and compete with each other. Thirdly, these policy processes form an infinite cycle of decisions and policies. Current policy decisions are not independent of decisions taken before, and policies under discussion today may have ‘knock-on effects’ leading to further policies tomorrow (Newton and van Deth 2010: 266).
