Company Assignments

Roughly half of the 1800 hours of study time at DTU’s Executive MBA program is spent on company-specific assignments and projects. As a result, the company receives approximately 900 hours of consultancy during the 21-months of study. In particular, the Consultancy Project in the 2nd semester, carried out by 4 participants, comprises about 600 hours of work on a specific business challenge; and the individual Master Project in the 4th and final semester is a company specific problem/challenge that accounts for 400 hours.

The Sponsor Dialogue

The sponsor dialogue is initiated at the start of the program and continues through the 21-month study period. The aim of this dialogue is to ensure that all parties are involved – i.e. you, your company, and a representative from DTU Business – and reap the highest possible benefit from the program by matching the assignments and projects to the needs and desires of the sponsor.

It is our experience that these cooperative activities increase the value of the program for all involved parties.
