Listing 7 programmes in autumn 2020
The MBA programme is directed at professionally active engineers who have a need to develop their knowledge within the management area, in order to be able to take on new professional challenges, particularly within project management and line management. The programme is conducted online, meaning that you can take part from wherever you are. We also offer it in two versions, full time and part time. The full time version runs over one academic year, and the part time version over two academic years. In both cases, the programme requires the equivalent of 40 effective weeks of study. This means a high degree of flexibility, since students can design their own learning situation in terms of both time and space. Within each version of the programme, there are specific schedules and deadlines for the different modules. We have had students from all over the world in the MBA programme. By working together with different assignments and projects, students do not only get an understanding of intercultural aspects of management, but also develop an international network of colleagues and friends, which they can benefit from long after they have finished their studies. The programme offers courses in essential management areas such as marketing, finance, organization, leadership and strategy. One credit point corresponds to one point in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
