About the Degree

During the first and second semesters, the MSc programme applies theories, models, and concepts to real-life problems. These first two semesters give you the opportunity to work on assignments that originate with a company and may also be carried out within the same context. In the third and fourth semesters, students can intensify their engagement with a company so that most of their credits are gained in the corporate environment. The company could also be the student’s own start-up company within the framework of our business incubator.

The MSc in Technology-Based Business Development is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Teaching is conducted as a combination of traditional lectures, teamwork, individual study, and empirical investigations using observations, measurements, and interviews. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment
