Master of Science

Business

Master of Science in Business is a two-year leadership and business degree programme.

Why choose Master of Science in Business?

You have the opportunity to customise your own programme by selecting a concentration area or ‘major’ in addition to choosing free electives from other fields. The comprehensive curriculum will provide you with competence relevant to a wide range of positions. In addition to being awarded a master’s degree, you may also qualify for the title of “Siviløkonom”, a well-established and recognised professional qualification in business and industry.

What will you learn?

The opportunity to combine different subjects, according to your interests and career plans, is unique for the Business programme. You can choose courses from all core fields of business. You will combine a specialisation (major) in one field with a broader orientation in other fields. On one hand, you will become a generalist or an all-rounder, with a general management education that is relevant to a number of different positions. On the other hand, you will become a specialist in a subject area chosen to meet your interests and ambitions. You will also develop sound analytical and strategic skills that are needed in managerial positions in business, industry, and public administration.

Majors

A wide variety of options will enable you to compose a master's programme that will optimise your interests and strengths. You will choose one of the following seven majors that will form the core of your programme.
