In both semesters, students do a project (Consultancy Case/Business Plan) in which they find solutions to complex practically-oriented problems. This is done in small, multi-cultural groups and students will be expected to solve these practical problems before presenting recommendations to your lecturers and fellow students. Supporting this, training in specific skills essential to your future career, such as negotiation skills, providing and receiving feedback, working in groups, delegating and presentation skills are a unique part of the programme.
