Our lecturers and guest lecturers are experts in their respective fields who will also teach you how to directly apply your new knowledge in the work context to help you get your professional career started. We’ll also invite international guest lecturers to join our sessions to provide an additional, multinational angle.


Apart from interesting and enriching lectures, we will organize a range of social activities for you.
