Abstract

The framework of the Bologna Process, the bachelor's–master's degree structure, was introduced into the Netherlands in 2002. At the moment many other countries in Europe have adopted this structure, or are in the process of restructuring their higher education system in that direction. The so-called Dublin descriptors have been developed to provide a general statement of qualifications that students should have acquired at the end of each cycle. These descriptors can be seen as criteria in terms of competence levels regarding the following aspects: acquiring knowledge and understanding, applying knowledge and understanding, making informed judgements and choices, communicating knowledge and understanding, and capacities to continue learning. It can be argued that these competences are interdisciplinary in nature. For instance, a university graduate has to be able to collaborate and communicate in multi- or interdisciplinary teams. However, many of these competences will be acquired in disciplinary settings, and faculty will not easily recognise the general terms in which the descriptors are formulated. This raises questions about the interchangeability of the competences between disciplines. In this chapter we will argue that some of the Dublin descriptors can be seen as an attempt to make it clear that there is a common interdisciplinary language in certain fields of attributes, whereas there will be a strong component of disciplinarity in the programmes. An example in the field of research and enquiry competences will be elaborated for two distinctive programmes: in natural sciences and in social sciences.

Abstract

With the broadening interest in logistics the need for appropriate professional qualifications is growing. But, there are major problems in the cross‐boundary nature of the topic and the desire for international recognition of any qualification. These problems were addressed at the Logistics Education Forum called and chaired by Martin Christopher, professor of Marketing and Logistics Systems in the School of Management, Cranfield Institute of Technology, prior to the 7th International Logistics Congress.

Abstract

This paper will detail the development of a multi-objective mathematical programming model for audit sampling of balances for accounts receivable. The nonlinear nature of the model structure will require the use of a nonlinear solution algorithm, such as the GRG or the genetic algorithm embedded in a Solver spreadsheet modeling system, to obtain appropriate results.
