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: read more about our Live Case Project

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 13 months by attending classes six to eight evenings plus two weekends per month, or you can complete it at a slower pace by taking up to a maximum of two years.
