Business and Technology (B&T) focuses on business development in international sales and sourcing networks. Companies operate in global networks; both managers and business development professionals need to understand how these networks work and how they can be managed.

In B&T you will develop a thorough understanding of the business processes characteristic of global business-to-business markets and the ability to apply business development practices in international networks. As a special feature, our B&T programme emphasises problem-based learning in projects with the local industry. Our programme combines theory and practice providing students with skills and competences appreciated in the industry; in terms of graduate employment rates B&T is one of the leading international master's programmes in Europe. An engineering background complemented with B&T is, therefore, an excellent starting point for a career in management.

As B&T is targeted at young engineers and engineering graduates, we place special focus on technology-intensive products and services. This pedagogical approach ensures that students are able to take full advantage of their engineering background when repositioning themselves in the management field.
