During the program, you will conduct one group project for a company. You will work in a team with fellow students on solving an actual problem of a specific company in the region. With your team, you will compete with others teams consisting of fellow students working on the same case for the same company. The first project will be related to the topic Sustainable Development or to the Digital Economy
At the individual course level, you will conduct group and individual assignments where you will actively demonstrate your newly acquired knowledge and skills.
You will finalize your Master’s program with an integrative assignment in the form of an academic research paper focusing on theoretical management, or a business consultancy project with a focus on a real-life issue for a company.
The academic research paper with a theoretical management focus involves researching practical problems that organizations are confronted with and formulating recommendations drawn from the research. The project focuses on a management or business problem encountered by a larger number of organizations.
The academic research paper with a focus on a real-life issue of a company involves how to advise a real-life organization in solving a specific problem it is facing. Part of this project will consist of doing business research to further analyze the problem.
