The study programme
Through your previous studies and professional experience you already have a great deal of specialist knowledge. The Master's programme builds on this. You will learn scientific methods for the solving of complex application-oriented problems. The skills acquired in the course of your studies will qualify you to take on management tasks.
The study contents are initially developed in self-study, supported by didactically prepared learning material. This allows you to plan your learning time flexibly. In order to deepen your specialist and methodological knowledge, there are additional on-site courses on Saturdays (and occasionally on Friday afternoons) during the semester. There, the theoretical contents are deepened in exercises and case studies in a practice-oriented way.
The exams are held in the form of "strong" papers and "strong" exams (approx. 50% each). Homeworks are written in time to the exercises, exams in the exam period before the beginning of the new semester.
During the course of your studies we support you with individual supervision and advice as well as with study-related services such as workshops on time and self-management or on writing your final thesis.
When you have successfully completed all modules, you start with your Master thesis, which usually covers the fifth semester. The award of the "Master of Business Administration and Engineering" is the final step of your studies and opens the way to tasks with management responsibility in the company, a position in the higher service or a career in applied research.
There is also the possibility of starting a doctoral project.
The programme is system accredited until 2026, read more about it in the link below.
