Last year, after long discussions and analyses, the Department of Management has decided to update the
undergraduate curriculum and course
catalogue. This proposal has yesterday been accepted by the senate
and will take effect in this Fall 2012.
Note that the curriculum change will not affect any student who at this point has completed 103 or more credits. For those, only changes in course
names (like AD408 moving from Business
Policy to Strategic Management) will apply, they will otherwise graduate normally.
In general, the new curriculum is geared towards being more modern, flexible and internationally compatible. The
number of credits has been slightly
reduced, and some required courses have been eliminated. In addition, many courses were changed in title
or content. For those students who get
converted to the new curriculum, there is a list of equivalences between old and new courses, so
to avoid anybody losing credits.
We will update our website within the next hours, as well as the online schedule and registration system (this can
take a few days). I will also hold an
information session on September 13, at 10:00 (NH105). If you have any questions, please contact your
advisor, or me directly by mail or in
person (please note that due to the renovation, both the chair's and secretaries' office moved to the
Executive MBA building for now).
Everybody in the department is fully committed to make this transition as easy and comfortable as possible, and we
are convinced that the changes made are
for the best of all our students.
For more information, you can have a look to this brochure on revision.
I hope you all had a great summer, and wish you all a successful Fall 2012 term,
Stefan Koch for the Department of Management
