Later there is a chance to choose from a variety of elective courses in order to tailor the Masters degree in the manner that you wish, moreover, there is the option of an internship to attain further practical experience.

During the second year you are given the opportunity to deepen your knowledge in one other area in the field of business administration. This year also includes a research method module and a module in current trends in business administration research. You will develop your writing, analysis and research skills through writing a master's thesis. During this year it is also possible to study abroad one semester.

Internship

You have the opportunity to do an internship in a company for ten weeks. This possibility exists only at a few business schools in the country. You will arrange your internship yourself in a company you find interesting. The internship gives you a good opportunity to put theoretical knowledge into practice and gain valuable experience and new contacts.
