The curriculum is enriched by analytical methods courses that allow you to customize your programme of study with electives and special topics courses. We also explicitly train you in project management in a cross-cultural environment, allowing you to work comfortably and easily in an international setting.

The final capstone project provides further opportunity for students to explore a subject of their choice in-depth. The project is conducted under the guidance of programme faculty and may potentially be combined with professional placement opportunities. A traditional master’s thesis is an option for highly motivated students, but is not required.

You will experience different teaching and learning methods, including lectures, field-based classes, case study analysis techniques, group project work, presentations, seminar discussions, and others. Significant emphasis is also placed on independent, learner-directed study.
