2017-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 19 March to 1 April 2017 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 Intensive Programme “Advance Topics” is carried out in cooperation with a different INTQUANT 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

The following table provides an overview about the different specializations within the course “Advanced Topics” offered during the next INTQUANT short-term mobility window.
