Curriculum Structure

The program lasts for two years. In order to successfully finish the course, 120 credit points have to be collected. Credit points are a quantitative measure of the overall workload of a student. They include the actual lectures as well as the time spent preparing and evaluating lectures (attending events vs. private study), taking exams, preparing for exams, thesis and seminar work and, as the case may be, work placements. An effort of 25-30 hours is taken as a basis to earn one credit point. One study year’s effort amounts to 1500 hours of work. Consequently, the whole course corresponds to 3000 hours of work. One credit point is equivalent to an ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credit point.

 

The first year of study of the program introduces students to general courses in economics, business, and management (60 ECTS). The second year of study is sub-divided into concentrations (majors) in Banking, Finance and Accounting, Marketing and Sales, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Logistics and Procurement Management. The student would have to pick one of the concentration areas which constitute five compulsory courses equivalent to 30 ECTS.  The second semester of the second year of study (30 ECTS) is spent on the preparation of the master thesis. More information about the master thesis follows after the education plan presented below.
