The two years MASTER schedules are structured partly with IN-RESIDENCE MAJOR and with OFF-CAMPUS Elective modules as well as an internship of 12 months as Trainee Manager.

For the Off-Campus' students will be challenged to grasp the concept of INDEPENDENT LEARNING, and then apply it to succeed in these modules. The length of time required to complete the module can vary greatly among students, depending on the time availability and the effort they are willing to put into it. However, as a guideline students should consider 60 hours study as a normal time allotted to finalize each chosen module.

Tutoring - Students are engaged in the content, promoting student-lecturer and student-student interaction through electronic peer review (voice or e-mail), whilst having to plan for face-to-face at set times with their course lecturer and/or the coordinator.
