The International Master in Industrial Management (IMIM) is designed to provide students with primarily scientific or engineering based educational backgrounds with essential business and managerial skills, relevant to pursuing careers in internationally orientated manufacturing and servicing industries.
AIMS OF THE IMIM
The IMIM aims to provide students with the competencies and skills necessary to develop a successful career in internationally orientated manufacturing and service industries. The programme seeks to bridge the gap between university and industry, by teaching the relevant knowledge and skills essential to effective managerial practices, especially the skills and knowledge not traditionally taught in technical or scientific university programmes.
The course places great emphasis on fostering an integrative teaching approach aimed at developing the ability of students to tackle issues in an interdisciplinary manner, while additionally providing an overview of general management concepts, such as marketing and accounting, through an industrial context. The programme also offers, through close collaboration with associated industrial and service companies, the chance for students to combine practical and relevant knowledge and skills with invaluable industry experience.
5 DIFFERENT STUDY LOCATIONS AROUND THE WORLD
Education is performed in a highly internationalised environment with the possibility to spend the 4 semesters of the course in up to 4 different countries across Europe and Asia.
The student experience is highly international and goes beyond the classroom. Students come from around 24 nations and participate in language courses, seminars with local managers and company visits in the host country.
