The mindset of the core curriculum can be described as multicultural, entrepreneurial, strategic, sustainable, collaborative and fostering leadership. Subjects such as Data & Business, Sustainability & Entrepreneurship, Finance, Economics, Strategic Leadership or Marketing are part of it.
The Specialisation allows students to dive deeper into a specific subject of their choice:
