In our 2-year Master of Science in Management (Msc) in which the students deepen their management knowledge and choose a specialisation, courses are taught entirely in English.

While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information available at the time this catalog is prepared, the institution reserves the right to make changes at any time without prior notice.

In the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), the normal workload for a full-time student is 30 credits per semester. The number of contact hours varies depending on the format and level of a course. Thus, students usually have to attend from 8 to 15 courses per semester to get 30 ECTS. We recommend that exchange students take a minimum of 20 credits per semester.

All exchange students have access to our bachelor’s courses. Master’s and bachelor’s students having completed at least two years of coursework have access to masters-level electives, namely, Extensive (one-semester long), and Intensive (one-week long).
