How a science master's could help budding inventors become entrepreneurs

How a science master's could help budding inventors become entrepreneurs | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

A science or engineering postgrad could help student’s take their idea from the laboratory to the marketplace.

It looks like the stuff of science fiction. As a snowboarder carves through virgin snow, a small drone buzzes overhead – an attached camera following and filming his every turn. This is Hexo+, an intelligent drone from a company founded by students doing a postgraduate in entrepreneurship at the Grenoble Ecole de Management in France.

Des étudiants algériens en magistère exclus de l'université

Des étudiants algériens en post-graduation (magistère) ne savent plus à quel saint se vouer. Certains en phase de finalisation de leurs thèses de soutenance ont été exclus par leurs facultés en raison du temps imparti fixé par les établissements universitaires au 31 décembre 2013 pour la remise des mémoires de fin d'études. Pour diverses raisons, notamment manque de ressources bibliographiques, plusieurs étudiants n'ont pas pu terminer à temps leurs travaux de recherche pour pouvoir déposer leurs thèses à la date fixée par le ministère de l'Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche scientifique. Du coup, il s'agit de centaines, voire plus, d'étudiants qui se retrouvent éjectés du domaine de l'enseignement supérieur sans aucune perspective après des années de travail et d'efforts soutenus.

[Norway] Heated debate over the value of masters degrees

In the past year there has been intense debate about masters degrees in Norway. The debate was launched by Professor Linda Lai at the BI Norwegian Business School, who introduced the concept of mastersyke – which in Norwegian means ‘masters degree illness’, with criticism of the degree supported by major surveys by Lai and Norwegian business.

Lai said at a seminar covered by the major business newspaper Dagens Næringslivthat the need for a masters degree was often exaggerated, and this could harm both students and employers. She based her arguments on a survey of 20,000 staff in the public and private sectors. (...) - University World News, by Jan Petter Myklebust, 16 August 2014 Issue No:330

UK: Private university for postgrads: costs and benefits

UK: Private university for postgrads: costs and benefits | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

Students who choose to go a private university may find fees compare well to the alternative.

He enrolled on the IFS School of Finance's flagship programme – an MSc in banking practice and management – which, like many courses, can be delivered online or as a blended programme, with fees ranging from nearly £9,000 to £10,500.
