In year one, you’ll learn about organisational costs and business administration and how to set up an investment plan for regional, national and international companies. In your second year, you’ll hit the ground running with business issues, which you’ll have to solve in hands-on group projects. In year three, you’ll start your journey as a ‘manager of change’ in a small and medium-sized enterprise, a government institution or a multinational before finishing off with a minor and thesis to get you ready for your dream career.
