It is a novel and unique programme, the first of its kind in Europe, offering a range of modern topics that range from optimisation and computational game theory to network games, and modern applications in electronic commerce, such as Google sponsored search auctions.

During each semester MSc students study a number of modules adding up to 60 credits per semester (120 in total). This will be followed by a dissertation, also 60 credits, making an overall total of 180 credits.
