In group and project-oriented work, you will have the opportunity to develop your planning and collaboration skills. There will be a focus on leadership, corporate social responsibility, family business management and entrepreneurship.


All courses will be conducted in English with students in attendance from around the world, which contributes to a broad perspective on the issues discussed in classes. The teachers have extensive experience of management research, which ensures relevance of the education.
