Business Administration with technical Qualification - Master

The consecutive Master's degree course "Business Administration with Technical Qualification" builds directly on the Bachelor's degree course of the same name at the TU Kaiserslautern and is especially designed for graduates of the Bachelor's degree course "Business Administration with Technical Qualification" at the TU Kaiserslautern. As a consecutive course of studies, the Master's degree in Business Administration focuses on the consolidation and expansion of the action competences acquired in the Bachelor's degree 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.  In addition to the consolidation of economic contents, the Master's programme serves to impart business and economic methodological competence (statistical methods, econometrics, quantitative methods of business administration) and extensive specialisation in two economic modules and a technical module.
