Students can opt for the two year master programme offered by the University of Twente (The Netherlands) and the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (Germany). This programme leads to two diplomas.

Entry in Twente

Students starting in Twente, will cover almost all core courses and additionally specialize with Analytics, data science and business courses. At the end of the third quarter they will start at Muenster for their summer semester. The last week of Q3 and the first week in Muenster could be overlapping depending on your choice of elective and (project) seminar, so travel back and forth to finish up your last exams could be required. More information on the curriculum and courses in Munester can be found in the module description
