MAS - Master of Advanced Studies

Well-founded expertise for specific tasks.

The MAS programmes are demanding, practically oriented continuing education programmes. They are aimed at established managers and specialists who have a university degree (or equivalent) and professional experience and now require specific expertise for upcoming career challenges. Many of the MAS programmes at FHNW are modular in structure and involve a final master’s degree assignment. Two years should be allowed for completion within a compact period of study (60 ECTS points).
