Business Planning and Development (MBD)

*Business Development

Change as a recipe for success

Today's economy is characterised by change: It involves dynamic, globalised brands, markets, industries that are constantly renewing themselves and the companies that have to react to these changes. In the Master of Science in Business Planning and Development (MBD), you will learn to understand this change as a critical element for success. Development is at the heart of the degree - developing existing businesses, developing ideas, developing strategies and processes. Within this framework, you have the opportunity to specialise quantitatively or qualitatively.
