The first semester a course in methodology provides knowledge and skills in interactive methods (action research) and in parallel a development project is identified and initiated together with a business, an organization or a local community. The project is implemented during the second semester. The project work provides skills to take on qualified project and process leadership roles and to be practically useful for the organization or the local society which has been chosen. Methodological skills are deepened during the last course during the second semester to enable a capacity to relate projet work to development of theory. The second year consists of a study abroad semester and is completed by a master thesis during the last semester.
