Students have to perform 120 Credits in four semesters. The programme is divided in a course phase (1st – 3rd semester) and the master's thesis (4th semester). During the programme the students deepen their knowledge in the field of management and leadership. Thereby they have many possibilities to individualise and focus their studies.

  • 3. Elective seminars and projects (12 ECTS)
  • 4. Quantitative methods (6 ECTS)
  • 5. Electives (18 ECTS)
  • 6. Master's thesis (30 ECTS)
By selecting your courses carefully, there is the possibility to select two minors (from the list of eight options), which will be stated on your degree, as long as you successfully complete at least 24 ECTS in each minor.

Specializations are:

  • a. Information management
  • b. Organization and development
  • c. Human resources
  • d. Production and logistics
  • e. Corporate management and controlling
  • f. International business
  • g. Resource and energy management
