The Master of Science in Betriebswirtschaftslehre allows students to choose modules according to their preferences. There are no mandatory courses!
Students need to take one elective module Management or one Seminar Management. The modules offered focus on the analyses of markets and organizations - corporate strategies, competition policies and regulation are covered as well as corporate innovation, organizational design, human resources and motivation and leadership research.
Apart from increasing your management knowledge, we want you to become responsible leaders and citizens. Thus, all students need to complete one elective module from the field of business ethics. Some of these modules are taught as lectures, some are seminar-like including student presentations.
Elective modules are the backbone of your master's degree. You can choose modules from the five specializations (see below) or selected modules from other master's programs. Which modules you choose is completely up to you and you are not limited to any specialization or field.
Electives are usually lectures taught by our academic staff.
In seminars you deepen your research skills as well as your business knowledge by focussing on a specific research question. Therefore, seminars prepare you for writing your master's thesis.
Project seminars usually combine the teaching styles of a lecture with a seminar. Thus, you can do your own research but are able to concentrate even further on a specific research topic. Upon completion, you receive 12 ECTS.
Your master's thesis is your final scientific project for graduation. By writing your thesis you prove that you can master a research project independently and are able to apply your knowledge and skills aquired during your studies.
