In the first semester, the basic knowledge and leadership skills are developed across all major disciplines. From January to March, Strategic Management is studied, accompanied by option courses. From April to June, students will study abroad at one of nine partner institutions, which is followed by a work placement from July to September. The programme concludes with the completion of a dissertation.

Lectures and case studies are supplemented with in-class discussions, presentations, project work as well as problem-based and action learning.

    An exchange of ideas between the academic and management communities is encouraged by inviting senior managers to discuss the applicability and limitations of concepts introduced in the courses.
