The programme is carried out over seven modules. In between modules there will be extensive use of net-based exercises such that the teaching hours will come to a total of 75. The programme is based on a “blended learning” concept, i.e. teaching in which the modules and net support are the two major teaching forms. The counseling will vary in form in the different Master of Management programmes. Personal counseling will be provided, as well as counseling during the modules. Generally speaking, students can expect advice-oriented counseling, not assessment counseling. Counseling time is estimated at two hours per paper.
In programmes that have required attendance it is the responsibility of the students to access information given at lectures but not on the programme’s homepage/Itslearning or other course material.
