How many years does the postgraduate take?
The postgraduate program gives you the opportunity to gain unique experience in business or entrepreneurship while working on our innovative team project. The program consists of a minimum of 56 credits, with 44 credits for the team project and a minimum of 12 credits for a personal training program.
The 44 team project credits are split into two parts. These two parts can be followed in the same year, making you a 1 year student. Or can be split over 2 years, making you a 2 years student. If you split the project over two years it is usually combined with a year of your masters degree. Where you essentially do both the masters program and the postgraduate program half time. Our core team consists of a mix of the 1 year students and 2 year students.
