Business Adminsitration - Master

The master's degree programme in "Business Administration" is aimed at outstanding bachelor's graduates of business administration courses from scientific universities in Germany and abroad. The courses offered in the Master's programme in Business Administration are designed to consolidate and expand the skills acquired in the Bachelor's programme in order to enable graduates to take on hierarchically higher tasks in the company. The aim of the four-semester Master's programme is to provide graduates with the skills they need for successful professional activity in business and science in their chosen field of specialisation in a scientific and application-oriented manner. The Master's programme serves to deepen the knowledge of economic subjects, to impart competence in business and economic methods (statistical methods, econometrics, quantitative methods in economics) and to specialise extensively in three main areas of economic science.

The Master prepares the basis for the entry into a management position in private and public companies. Depending on the chosen specialisation, graduates are offered a wide range of fields of activity in all industries. In addition, the Master's degree opens the door to an academic career at universities and research institutions.
