The difference between completion of a nanodegree programme and other additional training courses is that by obtaining a nanodegree consisting of 15 ECTS credits, the student completes a part of a master’s degree programme. 

 

You can choose a total of 60 ECTS worth of nanodegrees in the two-year MBA programme.

Finance and Accounting

The aim of finance and accounting nanodegrees is to develop the financial knowledge and skills that are necessary for a manager and a specialist while preparing, interpreting and analysing financial statements and communicating financial information to different recipients and stakeholders.

Management and Leadership
