The Industrial Engineering and Management - Business and Technology program offered by Tampere University focuses on business development in international sales and sourcing networks. Companies operate in global networks; both managers and business development professionals need to understand how these networks work and how they can be managed.
In B&T, you will develop a thorough understanding of the business processes characteristic of global business-to-business markets and the ability to apply business development practices in international networks. As a special feature, our B&T programme emphasises problem-based learning in projects with the local industry. We are experts of combining theory and practice: in terms of graduate employment rates, B&T is the leading international MSc programme in Finland. An engineering background complemented with B&T is, therefore, an excellent starting point for a career in management.
This programme is aimed at students who have a BSc degree in engineering or technology. The engineering degree combined with our two-year management programme is a powerful combination with interesting career prospects in business development.
Our graduates have career opportunties, for example, in the following fields:
- Business Development
- Sales Management
- Technology Sourcing
- Supply Chain Management
- Business Intelligence Systems
- Market Analytics
- Product Management

The programme starts with an introductory course to management studies and eventually culminates in advanced courses simulating decision-making situations in real-life business. Students who hold a BSc in Industrial Engineering and Management will study a technologically oriented minor. After the three semesters, students write their master's thesis in close collaboration with a company, mostly in a paid position.
Our experienced teachers use a broad range of teaching methods, such as lectures, class discussions, case studies, written assignments and problem-based learning with companies.
