Overview

More and more business graduates work with service production in service companies, in public agencies, and in other businesses where the service aspect is gaining ground. Our programme has evolved from the extensive research pursued at CTF (Service Research Centre), Karlstad University, in a multidisciplinary environment. You can study towards one of three Master of Science degrees: Master (60 credits), Continuation Master (75 credits), or Master (120 credits). A Master"s degree in business administration meets international demands.

Employment Market

This programme provides education adapted to different tasks in companies and public agencies. The Master (60 cr) means a total study period of four years (three in undergraduate study plus one at Master level). This has been the standard requirement for economists in Sweden for a long time and is probably needed in a competitive employment sector. If you choose the Continuation Master 75 ECTS cr, you will have attractive qualifications for Swedish employers. The Master (120 cr) is often a requirement for many positions internationally.

Degree

The programme leads to a Master of Science qualification (60/75[82.5] or 120 credits). The degree requirements are specified under the heading "Programme Aims" in the Programme Study Plan.

Further Studies

Graduates are eligible to apply for doctoral programmes in primarily business administration. The discipline in which a doctor"s degree will be awarded depends on the specialisations included in the student"s previous studies.
