There are no formal coursework degree programs in System Dynamics offered in the region. Many students looking for Masters-level system dynamics training travel overseas. However, there are many units/courses within coursework degrees that students can take. The Society maintains a database of courses that contain system dynamics and/or systems thinking approaches. If you would like to add a course and help to build awareness of SD/ST in the region, please add your course there.
Many doctoral and research students find themselves looking for methodology to apply to a complex problem. System dynamics is a great structured methodology to build qualitative and quantitative models and gain novel insights from. If you are looking for an Honours, Masters or Doctoral supervisor or thesis examiner, check the Society’s Member Directory.
