The Business Administration (MSc) master's degree program teaches you how to apply scientific methods and insights to help generate solutions for complex business and administrative problems.
All companies sometimes face complex business problems. They can involve short or long-term strategies, the implementation of a sound business concept, HRM policy, the improvement of services or the introduction of sustainable innovation or change. The Business Administration (MSc) master's degree program teaches you how to help organizations improve their operations and to solve these kinds of problems.
The master's program in Business Administration has six specializations; specializations with their own individual range of subjects and career prospects.
The six specializations are:
- Information Management
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship (also a two-year program possible)
- International Management
- Service Management
- Human Resource Management
- Financial Management
The master's in Business Administration is a dynamic program that responds to developments in society and student interest. The range of specializations can, therefore, vary from year to year.
The BA Master program consists of 60 European Credits (EC). One-third of this BA program consists of common courses (20 EC). Two-thirds of the program consists of specialization-specific courses (40 EC) including the Master’s thesis (25 EC). Each course comprises 5 EC. The language of instruction is English.
The Master’s degree in Business Administration features six different areas of specialization. Before starting with the common courses, you select a specialization in which you will undertake a more in-depth exploration. Each specialization consists of two specialization courses and a Master Class, preparing the final assignment. Writing, presenting and defending a Master’s thesis concludes this degree course. A five-month traineeship will provide you with the opportunity to integrate the knowledge and various tools learned in class and apply this to real-world problems while working with professionals. The traineeship is the final step before graduation and consists of a problem-oriented research project carried out in a manufacturing or service organization, including possibly a research institute.
