This master programme allows deepening and supplementing the knowledge acquired at the bachelor's level through the choice of three modules in a set of 10 modules representing 10 major aspects of management today. Managers and decision-makers must more than ever be generalists. But because everyone has their own background and very personal preferences, the master in management allows students to personalise their journey and combine specialties as diverse as, for example, human resources, digitisation or the management of non-profit organisations. In addition, access to courses from other modules than the three specialisations, from other departments or from our partner universities, allows everyone to build a meaningful journey. Combined with its multilingual dimension, this programme represents a unique offer in Switzerland.
