The postgraduate programme Intercultural management is implemented as a full-time and part-time study. In the part-time study, the organization and timing of lectures, seminars, and exercises are adjusted accordingly. For the implementation of contact hours, the faculty also applies a variety of modern forms of information and communication technology (online classroom, etc.).
The study is conducted in Slovene, and a certain level of knowledge of English (at least level B2) is required for the successful completion of study obligations. The reason: some of the literature is in English, certain lectures are held in English (this volume is small, but this should not be completely ignored).
A study year is implemented in one academic year, and it is divided into two semesters. During the semesters, students attend lectures, seminars, and other forms of organized activities. Exams are implemented during (three) examination periods – the winter, summer, and autumn examination period.
Lecture schedule: The study takes place at the faculty headquarters at Gregorčičeva ulica 19 in Nova Gorica and at the dislocated unit at Leskoškova 9 / e in Ljubljana.

Access to the schedule and materials is available via Web office (spletni referat) or online classroom after the candidate is registered.

Knowledge assessment is part of the study process of teaching and learning, and it takes place during the course of the study process (after the first semester) and after the completion of the individual courses of the study programme (after the second semester). At the same time, students are expected to pass ongoing activities. The intention and objective of knowledge assessment is to acquire regular and quality information about how students are achieving the planned general and course-specific competences, and obtain information on the achievement of the goals of the study programme.
The method of knowledge assessment and grading is determined for each individual course and specified in its syllabus. They are adjusted to verify the achieved objectives at individual courses, anticipated achievements of the study, and development of general and subject-specific competencies. Methods of knowledge assessment and grading vary because of different teaching methods, which ensure criteria of validity, reliability and objectivity, but also take into account the quality of the structure and organization of knowledge.
To progress from the first to the second year, the student must acquire at least 45 ECTS from the first year.
SASS can enable the student to progress to the next year, even if the required conditions are not met, in the event of the following circumstances: maternity, prolonged illness, exceptional family or social circumstances, participation in top cultural, sports, or professional events.
A student who does not meet the conditions to progress to a higher year of study has the possibility to repeat a year once or to change the study programme or module due to non-fulfillment of obligations in the previous module or study programme. The second year of study cannot be repeated as Seniority (absolventski staž) or an additional year of study is intended for the student to pass the missing obligations.
Depending on the academic achievements, the student may complete the study in a shorter time than provided by the study programme.
In order to finish the studies, the student has to successfully complete all study obligations prescribed by the study programme as well as prepare and successfully defend a Master’s Thesis. Students complete the studies when he/she obtains minimum 120 ECTS prescribed by the study programme. Upon completion of the study, the student receives a master’s degree which is a public document.
Graduates of the study programme Intercultural Management are qualified to perform the most demanding tasks in organizations (government administration, NGOs, companies), which are operating in an international environment or are experiencing cultural diversity of customers, employees or users. They can act as managers, officials, experts, analysts, consultants, organizers, or mediators, etc. They are able to take responsibility for the management of highly complex operating systems, and to develop critical reflections; they have social and communication abilities for teamwork management.
