TIME is an accelerated, full-time Master's program in Business Economics (MBE). It is jointly offered by a consortium of three universities: The University of Crete, the University of Cyprus and the University of Wageningen (Wageningen, Netherlands). It is recognized by the Greek, Cypriot and Dutch Education authorities within the framework of the Bologna Process.
TIME is a full-time program with exit points at 15, 18 and 21 months. The program consists of three components:
1. The Academic Modules - 60 ECTS (September - May)
The academic module is taught independently by the University of Crete and the University of Cyprus between September and May at their respective campuses. Both Universities follow an identical curriculum and time schedule.
2. The Summer Practicum - 30 ECTS (May - July)
Between May and July students undertake a summer practicum that takes the form of either an internship or an entrepreneurship summer school. The internship is overseen by the University of Wageningen and is expected to take place in the Netherlands, Greece or Cyprus. The entrepreneurship summer school takes place at the University of Crete for both cohorts.
3. The Master Thesis - 30 ECTS (May - December)
The master thesis is normally drafted between May and December the 31st. If more time is needed, students can extend their exit point.
An integral part of TIME Program is the fact that it involves 1, 2 or 3 different allocations in 3 different countries: Greece, Cyprus and the Netherlands.
TIME comprises 16 different courses belonging to three modules:
Module A: Business Economics and Quantitative Methods
Module B: Business Skills for Innovative Ventures
Module C: Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship for R&D Intensive Firms
Nearly all courses are taught in 12 academic hours. Performance is assessed through exams, individual assignments and team projects. More details on the academic content of the program can be found here.
An undergraduate degree. A one page CV/resume presenting details of your academic and professional background. Names and details of two referees.

Applications will be accepted and considered even without the English test score, however acceptance will be conditional until you take the test and send us the results. GMAT is a plus, but not a must. Work experience will be valued.
