Combine my entrepreneurial mindset with my interest in strategy and organisation

After graduating from the International Bachelor Economics and Business Economic programme I was looking for a masters' programme where I could combine my entrepreneurial mindset with my interest in strategy and organisation. One where academic and research skills are equally as important as bridging the gap to real world problems. It sounds like the perfect programme but this specialisation gives you that exactly.

The curriculum

Both core and elective courses focus on topics such as strategic firm behavior and innovation strategy but this programme is about more than theory! Whether for work or your thesis, the ability to analyze is as important as keeping track of theoretical/practical aspects and knowing how to interpret facts is as important as understanding ideas and concepts. All professors of this specialisation will help you develop both hard and soft skills and you will learn how to apply theory to translate insights into a tailored approach to solve the case at hand.

This set of unique set skills you develop was the real game changer for me. I realized these would make the difference, not only when applying for my first job, but also for the first years of my career.
