The Master of Science in Betriebswirtschaftslehre is directed especially towards performance-oriented graduates of bachelor programs in economics, as well as young professionals with an economics-related bachelor's degree who would like to pursue a career path that leads to a management position in the business world by way of an academic detour shortly after having obtained practical experience.
This is a full-time consecutive studies program and thus requires an extensive prior knowledge of economics. Moreover, the orientation of the program presupposes a high degree of knowledge of quantitative-statistical methods. The program is a German/English degree course. Therefore, both German and English proficiency is mandatory (see Application).
