Please note:

The MCS is a Master of Science program open to students with various backgrounds and holders of different bachelor’s degrees. We consider the diversity of our students an essential part of our productive learning environment.

To study consumer science in an academic context, you will require a sound theoretical background. This is covered mainly by courses in the first and second semester, many of which involve practical exercises. The goal of these courses is to prepare you for dealing with more specialized research fields in your third and fourth semester.
