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
