Student life

Teaching will primary consist of lectures, exercise sessions, groupwork and project work. A supportive learning environment ensures that you, alone and in teams, gradually strengthen your ability to build and bring together practical and theoretically anchored competences in reflexive ways.

The programme has a problem-based learning approach (PBL). This means that all educational activities aim to take authentic business problems as their point of departure by adopting case-based lectures and courses, inviting guest lectures, organizing company visits, and facilitating collaboration between students and companies. Working with PBL ensures that you develop skills in identifying and analyzing specific problems related to business administrations and enables you to develop your recommendations and solutions.
