The study programme consists of ten modules (or course units) divided over three parts offering the student a certain freedom of choice. The introduction (part 1) contains introductory notions and concepts. These compulsory modules are organised during the first three weeks of the academic year. The in-depth specialisation takes place in part 2 consisting of seven modules. The student composes a self-selected study package until a total of 18 credits is reached. The integration (part 3) is made up of an integrated course, an integrated case study and a master’s dissertation.
