Course of studies

The Master's degree programme at the NORDAKADEMIE Graduate School combines the benefits of classroom teaching with closely coordinated self-paced study for maximum success and a high degree of flexibility while simultaneously working.

The lectures of the Master's degree courses take place in the following order: 

  • Self-study phase of 4-6 weeks
  • 12-13 classroom phases lectures in German for 2.5 days per module
  • between that self-study phases + examinations
  • Project (optional)
  • Additional offers (e.g. International weeks in China and Russia)
  • Master's thesis (5 months)

The degree course begins with the first study period which is a self-study phase of four to six weeks.  

The classroom sessions that are following for all modules of the first to third study phases are offered in four to six weeks intervals for two and a half days (usually from Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday). The lectures will take place during the day and not in the evenings, mostly from 9:15 AM to 6:30 PM.  

Exams (usually two hours) are typically written two weeks after the end of each classroom phase on a Monday, Friday or Saturday in the morning or around noon.

The final task of the study course is the Master’s thesis during the third study phase. Five months are allocated.

Graduation takes place about 2 to 3 months after the end of the study course in June and in November / December.
