  • Practical Information & Admission

    English is the sole language of instruction. Participants therefore require knowledge of that language.

    The modules are organised during the week (Tuesday to Wednesday / Thursday to Friday). Half of the class time is devoted to the acquisition of new knowledge in the subject area concerned, while the remaining time is allocated to practical work and case studies.

    Each of the 7 modules is followed by a written or oral examination. Oral examinations are taking place during the course module. Written examinations are taking place on Monday afternoon before the subsequent course block starts (e.g. visit course module in January, examination in March). For the exact course dates, please refer to the timetable. By completing an Executive CAS, students receive 22.5 ECTS-Credits including the internationally recognised Executive CAS in ICT or Utility Management (Financial Decision Making) of the University of Fribourg.

    Candidates for the CAS require at least two years’ professional experience in a management position and to have obtained a licence (Bachelor/Master) recognised from a University or University of Applied Sciences or other diploma recognised as equivalent (or may be admitted “sur dossier”).
