Master Foundation Programme

Hero Banner

Preparation is key!

The Master’s Foundation Programme aims at those prospective students who would like to join our M.Sc. General Management programme but whose academic background is a non-business related one. In the foundation programme, these students acquire the knowledge required in order to pursue our master’s degree in Management.

The programme consists of five modules and bears 30 ECTS. One ECTS is equivalent to 30 hours of study (including hours spent in class as well as self-study). You can find the study material on our eCampus: myPFH (see chapter 3)

  2. Classrooms / meetings / presentations / oral exams: Blackboard  Since April 2020, PFH uses “blackboard” as virtual classrooms and meeting rooms. Each lecturer has his/her own classroom to which students can be invited.
