We are looking for talented applicants who are enthusiastic about research and genuinely intellectually curious.

In line with international best practices, research at TSM begins in the second year of the Master, with a dedicated research programme.

The course list can be split in two parts:
  • intensive core courses in general management
  • in-depth courses for the chosen specialization area
The core courses bridge theory with adequate tools to understand and handle challenging real-world management issues, and unleash students’ potential, confidence and skills to develop groundbreaking ideas.

These courses are offered on-site only; no distance learning option is available.
