Your door to the business world
Management today must be flexible, future-oriented, and progressive. International developments such as globalisation and financial crises, but also local events and industry-specific trends, will change tomorrow's management. Our Master Management reacts to this change and trains your business management skills to prepare you in the best possible way for your future role as a manager.
Regardless of whether you come from physics, engineering, or the humanities - with us, it's not your background that counts, but your motivation to drive innovation and make a difference. The Master Management offers you the opportunity to acquire an additional qualification in management that is both scientifically oriented and practical. You don't need any previous knowledge of business administration and can focus on a specialist area from the fields of International Marketing, Finance & Accounting, IT Management, Engineering Management, Big Data Management, or Leadership.
