Master Program in Sociology

Learning objectives in the programme of graduate studies in sociology were determined with accordance with EQUAL standards. The emphasis was put on integration, mutual relationships and specific character of theoretic and practical knowledge. This knowledge, engineer by its nature, applied for particular problems of social life at its all stages of organization, comprises research, design, construction, application and evaluation of institutional solutions regarding the specific character of business social life.

The interdisciplinary programme of MA studies in sociology of complementary character is mainly oriented at education of specialists in the field of business sociology. It is therefore conducted in the College of Management and Finance and combines the knowledge in the field of organization and management theory, which is developed there, with the knowledge in the field of social sciences (anthropology, economics, sociology, political sciences, social and cognitive psychology). Such profile of the described course distinguishes it among studies traditionally conducted in sociology at other universities, by combining in a productive way the EQUAL standards with the standards of the Ministry and specialization requirements of our business sociology studies.
Management
Management (or managing) is the administration of an organization, whether it is a business, a not-for-profit organization, or government body. Management includes the activities of setting the strategy of an organization and coordinating the efforts of its employees (or of volunteers) to accomplish its objectives through the application of available resources, such as financial, natural, technological, and human resources. The term "management" may also refer to those people who manage an organization.
Psychology
Psychology is the science of behavior and mind, including conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as feeling and thought. It is an academic discipline of immense scope and diverse interests that, when taken together, seek an understanding of the emergent properties of brains, and all the variety of epiphenomena they manifest. As a social science it aims to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and researching specific cases.

The worker is not the problem. The problem is at the top! Management!

Psychology
[Modern psychology] appears as the sickly offspring of average common sense when it is taken as what it professes to be—a science of the inner life. The entire achievements of the so-called science in this respect is outweighed by a single page of Goethe’s or of Jean Paul’s psychology; and it is impossible to evade the bitter truth which Novalis already has summed up, when he says that so-called psychology is one of those idols which have usurped the place in the sanctuary where true images of the gods should stand.
Ludwig Klages, The Science of Character, W. Johnston, trans., p. 16
Psychology
Truly, if you want to ascertain what love there is in you or in another person, then pay attention to how he relates himself to one who is dead. If one wishes to observe a person, it is very important for the sake of the observation that one, in seeing him in a relationship, look at him alone. When one actual person relates himself to another actual person, the result is two, the relationship is constituted, and the observation of the one person alone is made difficult. In other words, the second person covers over something of the first person; moreover, the second person can have so much influence that the first one appears different from what he is. Therefore a double accounting is necessary here; the observation must keep a special account of the influence the second person has on the person who is the object under observation through his personality, his characteristics, his virtues, and his defects. If you could manage to see someone shadowboxing in dead earnest, or if you could prevail upon a dancer to dance solo the dance he customarily dances with another, you would be able to observe his motions best, better than if he were boxing with another actual person or is he were dancing with another actual person. And if, in conversation with someone, you understand the art of making yourself no one, you get to know best what resides in this person.
