are in employment, at managerial level, and wish to achieve a Master’s level qualification
UNIQUE NATURE OF THE PROGRAMME

The courses will focus on different types of companies as for instance high-tech ventures, start-ups and family businesses.
Furthermore, the college is currently exploring further avenues for students enrolled onto this programme so that they can be offered the opportunity to translate the knowledge developed to a practical business situation. During this fast track 9 months academic program, groups of students can opt for setting up and managing their own student projects relating to setting up businesses, or they can be linked to a small or medium-sized business or where suitable with the management team of a large corporate to gain industrial experience wherever possible.
