The Concept

We primarily target persons who are in a job and want to study in parallel. This Master Program is delivered in a blended-learning format within a period of only 3 Semesters.

The program is made up of 3 elements:

  1. Face-to-face courses are organized on 15 weekends only over a period of 3 semesters at the premises of IBSA in Graz, Austria.
  2. Face-to-face sessions are normally combined with e-Learning assignments which are expected to
    be completed within several weeks after the face-to-face class. Grading usually includes active
    participation and take-home exams.
  3. A study trip to Brussels provides first-hand experience and knowledge on relevant topics of the program and is organized during the second semester.
