These specializations each have their own unique focus and career path. Each specialization will provide you with a customized learning experience and allow you to focus on your chosen area, helping to prepare you for your future career goals.

Most students choose the standard track with 180 ECTS, but we also offer an intensive track with 210 ECTS. The intensive track is also able to be completed within six semesters. In the intensive track, you will have more in-depth exposure to the coursework and complete a second internship. With the extra credits, you will have even more options when choosing a Master’s degree – including shorter programs that will allow you to start your career earlier.

The BSc program is rounded off by valuable experience outside the classroom: a mandatory three-month internship, an integrated semester abroad, and other extracurricular activities.
