Course Information

Management for Innovations and Sciences - Master's programme for working professionals (MSc)

Both businesses and public research institutions are increasingly pushed to keep transforming. The competitive pressure forces businesses to constantly improve their efficiency and effectiveness.  At the same time, they are challenged to launch new and innovative products in ever shorter periods of time. Research institutions also feel the pressure to innovate: research output needs to be achieved with efficient use of resources. Management skills to lead and develop a research organisation are therefore of great importance. The Innovation and Science Management programme addresses these exact requirements.

Tuition fees can vary depending on your module choices and range between €13,200 - €15,900.

The length of the study programme depends on your individual curriculum and usually ranges between 4 and 7 semesters.
