You will learn in a variety of ways, ranging from interactive lectures, case studies, discussions and action-based learning to ideation, rapid prototyping, team and project work.

  • Project work

    Project work is an essential part of the study programme and is structured in two phases: The team project (phase I) is focused on the learning experience.
