Acceleration programs:

  • Give students an opportunity to make the best use of semester breaks and holidays

  • Avoid delays and allow students to complete their degree program faster

  • Make use of the university’s room capacities during breaks and holidays

  • Offer block courses for students with a full-time or part-time job

Courses are organized on a short-term basis and are offered based on demand, i.e. courses that were fully booked during the semester and are in high demand are repeated during the acceleration program. Courses focus mainly on general business administration, law, and economics.
