Study programme

The Master’s programme consists of two years on a full-time basis (120 EC), in which the focus gradually shifts from performing scientific research towards having a career in industry or a business.

The first year comprises a science-focused programme. You choose a scientific research project (51 EC) and follow theoretical courses (4 EC) related to the discipline of your Bachelor's degree. During the second year you meet and consider the subjects from business management (33 EC), and finally, you perform a business internship (27 EC) at a company.
