The Master's programme in business administration is designed for students who wish to combine the different academic areas of the field. Students have considerable options for integrating into their studies elective courses in law, information technology, psychology, energy and natural resource science, among others.
The programme aims to deepen students' understanding of business administration and strengthen analytical skills, communication skills, and ability to develop and make use of business opportunities in a broad context. The aim of the programme is to train and motivate students to use analytical and critical thinking, as well as to train students in using independent and scientific work methods.
- The Master's thesis is intended to deepen students' knowledge and expertise in their chosen area of study. - The programme is entirely taught in English but elective courses taught in Icelandic are also available. - The content of the programme is based on international academic requirements and effective consultation with progressive Icelandic companies.
Internship An internship is an important factor for students who have limited work experience or students who wish to create opportunities for themselves in a new venue. A maximum of two electives can be replaced by internships (total of 15 ECTS). RU organizes the internships and students are provided with a contact person at the company. In many instances, an internship can lead to an employment opportunity. Access to internships may be limited, and the rule applies that students who have demonstrated the best results in their studies take precedence.
Teaching methods Each course in the programme is designed to foster a dynamic interaction among students and professors in order to promote a healthy and rich learning environment. This environment not only helps students develop a knowledge base and set of professional skills, it provides a firm foundation for advanced academic study (in PhD programmes in Iceland or abroad) or for entering the global marketplace.
