Structure of the programme

The lectures are held in three-day sessions, which take place one weekend a month (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). For each unit two online structured discussions take place between the unit leader and the students.

Each unit is mainly taught over one weekend. During the lectures the subject is presented, case studies are analysed and workshops and essays on the matters covered are assigned. Usually these essays comprise of an analysis of a real situation in the company where the student is employed.

In between the units students are welcome to contact their professors and discuss any matter of concern. In addition, discussion boards and emails are encouraged. Students also visit industries that are linked to a particular unit.
