MBM – MSc in Business Management offers a balanced blend of theory and practice. Our academically stimulating programme of 12 core courses taught in the classroom focuses on modern management concepts and makes relevant use of the case study method and heavily involves interactive learning (including blended learning) as essential parts of your classroom experience.

Furthermore, our programme is enriched by action-learning elements such as company visits and practical skills workshops that are part of the Career and Industry Seminars core course. This course is mostly a combination of outside-the-classroom activities.

As a programme participant, you will also get involved in real-life company projects. This occurs via the Final Project (either in the form of an internship with a company or a business consultancy experience), and also via such elective courses as Starting a New Business.
We offer a wide range of specialized courses – please see the MBM – MSc in Business Management Specialisations

Course Structure

Modular Course Structure
The Programme is a combination of core and elective courses. Courses follow the Flexi Study modular principle as opposed to the semester-type principle. Courses are of variable length depending on their ECTS credits and students attend one course at a time.  Learn more how the Flexi Study system works.

Time and Duration
The MBM – MSc in Business Management is a flexible 13 months modular programme with rolling admissions, which means you can join any time of the year. We have two main intakes: September/ October and January/February.

Classes are held during evenings and weekends, leaving weekdays free for employment or internship.

The MBM – MSc in Business Management can be completed in one year by attending classes six to eight evenings plus one weekend per month, or you can complete it at a slower pace by taking up to a maximum of two years.
