We at Tampere University welcome engineers and engineering graduates from all over the world to study in our Industrial Engineering and Management - Business and Technology in an intercultural, business-oriented learning environment.

Visit the official programme website for more information


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.

  • Business Development

Programme Structure

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.
