MA in Cultural Policy, Relations & Diplomacy, Goldsmiths, University of London The discourses of contemporary “Leadership” and “Enterprise Theory” are, much like the wider discourse of Management Theory itself, in a state of critical transformation. The authority, validity, and appropriateness of that type of scientifically influenced or “positivist” thinking that informed so much of the early “Taylorist” and “Fordist” influenced work of the so-called “first age” (Snowden, 2005) of Management Theory has been thrown into disrepute, as have many of the premises of that more contextually aware and “constructively” influenced work that informed the so-called “second age.” Particular emphasis will also be placed on the “cross-cultural” significance of this work in relationship to both Gert Hoftstede (2001) and Richard E. Nisbett’s (2005) work on the differing “dimensions” of cultural belief, value, and understanding.
National Urban Transport Policy: Enabling More Sustainable Development in a Changing World National transport policy and financing can have many effects on urban transport and sustainability.

Short Course - Culture, Society and the Making of Humanity: Introducing Anthropology, Goldsmiths, University of London Why do we identify with some social groups more than others? How do every day activities such as shopping inform our sense of group belonging? Human behaviour, culture and society pose many questions for all of us and through the discipline of anthropology - the study of humans - we can reveal important insights into language, race, marriage, religion, sex and other defining features of our humanity. As a discipline, anthropology is concerned with understanding what constitutes ‘human nature’ and the underpinnings of human behaviour. This course also examines some of the ways anthropologists have tried to understand what it means to be ‘human’.
Driving a Global Shift to Sustainable Transportation Sustainable transportation solutions are critical – and beginning to happen. By Michael Replogle and Colin Hughes (In collaboration with the Worldwatch Institute) Perhaps it should come as no surprise that the commitments to sustainable transportation were some of the greatest achievements of June’s Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD). Very little could exemplify the world’s need for sustainable transport to the delegates better than the average of six cumulative hours they spent on buses in a traffic-choked commute to the exurban conference site every day.

Scholarships and financial support The quality of British education is universally acknowledged: British universities and colleges frequently come out top of the list in global ratings of educational institutions. Tuition fees in Britain are rather high; however, many universities and colleges have established their own scholarship programs for international students. The student can be granted either a flat sum (which is determined independently by every educational institution, according to the student’s chosen program) or a scholarship which covers from 50% to 100% of tuition fees. The number of recipients may be restricted, though some scholarships are available to all candidates who meet the requirements of the institution. Some scholarships are only available for certain educational programs during a fixed period of time. There are also subject scholarships, for example, for outstanding performance in sports.

Using open tools to create the digital map of Cairo’s public transit Follow the authors, Tatiana (@tatipq) and Diego (@canaless) on Twitter The first step in any transit planning process involves understanding the current supply and demand of transit services. In most of the countries where we work, understanding the supply of services is a messy, costly and lengthy process, since most cities have little knowledge of bus routes, services and operational schemes.
