The two-year programme is designed to prepare you for professions at management level within private and public organisations both nationally and internationally, or for an academic career. The first semester is reserved for core courses, such as strategy and leadership, which are common to all students.

As a student on the Master Programme you will acquire the skills needed to take responsibility for advanced assignments at management level within companies and organisations. Besides the above-mentioned skills you will be able to acquire in-depth knowledge in one of two areas:
