RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) is bringing to Kosovo the RIT’s unique Master of Science Program in Professional Studies. This program focuses on Strategic Foresight and Innovation, and has a complimentary Project Management MicroMasters® component.
Upon formally announcing the program, the Interim President and Dean of Faculty at RIT Kosovo (A.U.K), Dr. Kamal Shahrabi stated: “Success in this century requires people who are innovative thinkers and problem solvers that have evolved their skills in the digital space; it requires people who are accustomed to working without a blueprint, and whose broad industry experience is complemented by content and strategy development, diversity of thinking, as well as strong project management and people skills. For this reason, at RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) we are instating a Master of Science Program in Professional Studies that equips students with a critical mix of skills and whose contributions, insights and forward thinking with a global perspective will create extraordinary value for any organization in Kosovo and beyond”
The overarching program goal is to produce leaders who are capable of anticipating the future and applying foresight methods and the associated insights to successful project and program implementation. The program will enable business and organization leaders and other professionals to improve their strategic thinking and planning and improve the way they make future-related decisions and deal with ensuing change. Program participants will also be able to develop professional expertise in terms of managing and leading future foresight and strategic planning projects with the completion of RIT’s Project Management MicroMasters® component which is a complementary part of this new Master of Science program.
The program is accredited with the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, United States,and is validated as an international program by the Kosovo Accreditation Agency.
The Master of Science program will start in the Spring Semester in January 2020 with a cohort of maximum of 30 students that will be admitted before November 5, 2019.
To help student finance their studies, RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) has partnered with TEB Bank in Kosovo to offer student loans with preferential interest and a maturity up to seven years.
