Structure of the Program

The Master’s program is based on the life cycle of a company and teaches you the skill of integrated thinking (a.k.a. networked thinking) hands-on. 

The degree program covers four semesters. The special feature is that the first three semesters correspond to the life phases of a company. That way, you work out the typical processes for each phase, from starting a business to dealing with a crisis, in cooperation with other students in a project-related manner. The transfer and application of the associated special knowledge and management techniques is networked and is mainly carried out by practitioners.

Due to this strongly application-oriented concept, the master's program offers a close coupling of theory and practice in addition to its international orientation. Assessing alternative solutions for practical problems with foresight, while also developing your own creative solutions, is one of the main skills you’ll learn. Your theoretical/scientific qualification ripens with the preparation of your master's thesis in the fourth semester.
