Career prospects

The demands placed on people in management positions and thus also on junior managers have increased in recent years. More and more often, training that goes beyond the traditional subject canon of business administration is required.

The aim of the course is to train graduates who can quickly familiarize themselves with business organizations, find their way around, assume responsibility and competently fill managerial positions. They have developed and acquired commercial / business management and social-scientific skills. The Master's programme is a postgraduate programme and is consecutively linked to the Bachelor's programme in Business Administration. The study concept is aimed at students who aim for a commercial management position in medium-sized companies after completing their studies.
The activities in these management positions require a very good knowledge of

  •     commercial and
  •     strategic management instruments and
  •     the ability to prepare and control complex situations between people.

The focus of the course is on training in the strategic management of organizations, including those with an international focus.
