Master (2 years) of Economics and Business Administration,
Economics, commerce, management and accounting

Institution Copenhagen Business School (CBS)
Campus Frederiksberg Campus
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 6250 EUR


You will learn to combine theoretical insight with an understanding of the practical challenges of strategy, organisation and leadership. This will give you a better understanding of management in a world of continuous change, and of how actions at individual and group level relate to the broader picture of business strategies and society at large.

The SOL programme  will have a strong focus on leading edge theories. These scientific theories are abstract, yet practical in the sense that they relate to organisations and their challenges.  You will look at the organisations from many different perspectives and thus have a more holistic approach when  working with theories in practice. The aim is to give you this holistic understanding of managing in organisations rather than provide you with tools. Tools of management are introduced in the programme, but as examples and not as directions for best practice. The aim is to provide you with understanding of how some tools perform in the big  picture.
