Requirements within the Master Programmes
For the second semester on the Master Programme in Entrepreneurship, and the third and fourth semester on the Master Programmes in Business and Management, and Accounting and Financial Management, there are requirements that needs to be fulfilled.
Eligibility requirements one-year Programmes

Eligibility requirements two-years Programmes
If you do an Internship during the third semester you must fulfill the requirement of passing 30 credits within the Programme. If you apply for elective courses you must make sure you fulfill the requirement of the course.
To be eligible to the forth semester and write the Master's Thesis 30 credits, you must have achieved at least 45 credits within the Programme before the start of the semester.
During the third semester you have the opportunity to study abroad, do an Internship or read optional courses. The Internship gives you the opportunity to test the knowledge you have recieved during your Programme studies in a real workplace. You can also choose to study abroad at one of our Partner Universities around the world. If you apply for optional courses at Uppsala University you need to remember that you are not guaranteed a place. As these courses may be very popular it is important that you give more than one choice. When selecting students priority is given according to the number of credits taken during earlier semesters on the Master Programme at Uppsala University.
Study Break or Interruption of Studies
From the second semester on our Master Programmes an onward it is possible to apply for a Study break. If you no longer want to study on the Programme you should interrupt your studies.
