What is IEM all about?
IEM focuses on the development and management of company and inter-company processes. Rooted in a rich scientific tradition, IEM is shaped by the rapid developments in research, business and technology. You will learn about the latest scientific theories on analysis and optimization and how they can be applied in practice to support design and management decisions in commercial processes. You will gain a better understanding of how process development, process control and performance indicators interact.
IEM has three specializations:
- Production & Logistic Management (PLM)
- Financial Engineering & Management (FEM)
- Healthcare Technology & Management (HCTM)
You will choose one of these specializations before starting your studies. The programme features several core courses (30 credits), open to all students. Some are required, some are elective:
- Introduction to IEM
- Management & Organization of Technological Innovation
- Management of Technology
- Organization & Strategy
- Empirical Research & Data Analysis
In addition to these courses, each specialization has:
- two catch-up courses (10 credits) that enable students to make up for any gaps in their knowledge
- a range of specialization courses (50 credits)
- a final thesis (30 credits), based on a research assignment at an external organization
Elective courses and international opportunities
