2018-INTQUANT short-term mobility “Advanced Topics”

All master programmes involved in the INTQUANT project harmonized their curriculum in the last term of studies to create a window for student short-term mobility.

Within all programmes the course “Advanced Topics” carrying 6 ECTS is part of the study plan. The course is offered during the summer term from 11 – 24 March 2018 at all universities and it is open for short-term exchange students. This gives enrolled students the opportunity to take this course at one of the partner universities.

The “Advance Topics” courses are carried out in cooperation with a industry representative at each institution. This company assists the local university in supplying a case study in accordance to its expertise in a specialization track.

As a participant this short-term mobility option gives you the opportunity to

  • deepen your knowledge in a certain field of studies
  • apply theoretical core coursework on a specialised topic in a realistic business context
  • work in an international team and use intercultural creativity to achieve an agreed outcome
  • benefit from networking opportunities created by the interaction with other students, faculty and industry professionals from various countries
