With the one-year part-time customized program, students participate in an intensive learning process where they are able to rapidly apply new knowledge to current business situations.

Students complete the first month as a preparatory self-study module, introducing important concepts in statistical methods to solve business problems. Consisting of videos, lectures, and assignments, the module teaches statistics from the management perspective, and is entirely independent of where the student sets time and location.

The mandatory core modules provide a strong foundation in management and central business functions, while pinpointing topics surrounding technology and entrepreneurship:

  1. Quantitative Methods - an introduction to statistical methods to solve business problems.
  2. Advanced Financial Accounting – accounting theory, financial and information economics, and agency theory.
  3. Advanced Controlling – insights into specific control systems, tools and contemporary management accounting practices.
  4. Operations in E-Commence – step-by-step in engaging team strategy deployment in start-ups and enterprises.
  5. Developing an Entrepreneurial Mindset – approaching idea generation, opportunity recognition, business plans, and overcoming resistance.
  6. Entrepreneurial Selling – targeting consumer vs small business vs big enterprise: defining and communicating the value proposition and sales techniques.
  7. Digital Technology Strategy – case studies and workshops connecting digital insights to professional context.
  8. Entrepreneurial Finance – examining new venture financing options and risk management tools.

In addition to an extensive curriculum, students participate in an additional module abroad. The international component takes place over one week. Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, the module focusses purely on cultural immersion to broaden perspectives, with the option to capitalize on networking opportunities with local top management.

The Master thesis is designed to demonstrate that CMiME students, while working on their own, are able to comprehend complex problems in the field of business and economics using a combination of both conventional and new methodological and theoretical techniques within their field of study. During a specified period, the completed final thesis should fulfill general academic requirements and be of a suitably high standard. The time allowed for writing the final thesis is three months.

This time begins once lectures for modules 1-8 are complete.
