Widen your expertise with advanced business and management. Develop your competences in market analysis, innovation management, and business development. Take the next step in your career. 

The programme is designed for both recently graduated within the technical area and engineers with work experience, but with little previous educational experience of industrial economics and management in general, and within financial and market analysis as well as business development specifically. It is ideal if you like collaboration and are interested in tackling contemporary business opportunities and problems.

A broad analytical view and two specialised tracks

The programme puts a particular focus on analysis to improve decision making and analysis to create value. The role of technology, innovation and sustainability is integrated and in all the programme comprise subjects such as industrial dynamics, globalisation, entrepreneurship, strategy, finance, and leadership.

In semester three, we offer two specialised tracks:

Competition, production, and financial analysis – if you want to develop your skills in quantitative analysis and optimisation in connection to production, financing and investment issues.

Marketing analysis, entrepreneurship and strategy – if you want to develop your knowledge and skills in strategy and business development.

Competence corresponding to a constant demand

Engineers and technicians with a holistic understanding of markets, business, management, and organisational practices are always wanted. The ability to select and wisely use business and management tools and analysis techniques provides a competitive career advantage.

A previous engineering degree combined with the contents of this programme will help you advance your career within global companies, public organisations, or innovative start-ups. After the education, you are prepared for professional roles within business analytics, business development, IT-management, innovation management, as well as product and project management.

The tuition fee is SEK 60 000 per semester, one semester corresponds to 30 ECTS credits. EU/EEA citizens are not required to pay fees.

Programme content

The good thing about the education is that it has been possible to combine experiences from school with experiences from work. The work experience has been beneficial for understanding the courses. It has been an advantage to come back after so many years.
