During your studies, you will take part in professional practical collaborations with consulting and analysis companies and research institutes, proving you with a highly practical experience, skills and networking opportunities that will enhance your employment possibilities, internationally.
Self-funded students will have the opportunity to enrol on a double degree programme in their second year.
