The Master's programme in Science and Business Management is designed to acquire scientific knowledge and skills, together with the ability to translate a scientific idea into a successful product.
The MSc programme in Science and Business Management seeks to bridge the gap between industry and science. It is designed for BSc graduates who are interested in business. The courses are aimed at helping you to further develop your academic and scientific knowledge and skills, while you also acquire expertise on product and process development. Students will learn to identify and manage problems that arise in each phase of the innovation process. This two-year taught programme teaches you not only to undertake scientific research, but also to make a translation to the market. In the first year you undertake an applied research project with a participating research group from the Faculty of Science, and theoretical courses determined by your research topic. In the second year you study fundamentals of business such as financial management, entrepreneurship, managerial ICT matters and environmental issues. You'll engage in an obligatory traineeship with a company or institute combining business with your science background. Graduates of the programme are highly qualified for research and management positions in innovative companies, consultancies, or government organisations.
