Recommended Study Schedule (Curriculum 2013)

Recommended Study Schedule (Curriculum 2013)

Haaga-Helia's Master's Programmes are being renewed for application in Spring 2019. Starting from autumn 2019, Degree Programme in Communication Management exists in Degree Programme Leading Business Transformation and in its Finnish equivalent Liiketoiminnan uudistamisen ja johtamisen koulutus as a specialization area.

Students entering the DP in Communication Management are recommended to follow the suggested curriculum and achieve their master's degree in 1,5 - 2 years. The recommended schedule naturally emerges from the course offering.

The programme combines various modes of study to allow working while studying. The face-to-face contact hours are scheduled for evenings and/or mornings and weekends; there will also be virtual/online work as well as intensive seminars.

The programme consists two compulsory modules that cover research and methodology as well as leadership (15 ECTS each). The advanced professional studies (25 ECTS) allow the students to elect a minimum of 15 ECTS from their own DP offering, and the rest from other programmes' offering (subject to limitation in the number of students admitted for the courses). Additionally, the students have a choice of 5 ECTS of free-choice studies from the wider HH offering or other universities/ universities of applied sciences.

Please note that students will start working on their thesis from the very beginning of the programme. Therefore, it is suggested that students have their thesis topic ideas when they start their studies.
