Tailor Your Studies to Your Interests

Your studies consist of theory and context modules in your chosen profile of Business Engineering. Your specialization makes up two thirds of your degree program. You will develop professional knowledge via project work, additional classes and the Master’s thesis. You can choose an individual area of focus to suit your interests. When selecting your project work, you can demonstrate broad skills or choose to specialize in a specific area.

Additional Classes

Module descriptions of the additional classes offered are only available in German: 


Theory and Context Modules

You complete one third of your master's degree as theory and context modules. Theory modules with technical-scientific focus (TSM) and advanced fundamentals (FTP) provide you with long-term knowledge and train your skills in abstract thinking. You complete your timetable with context modules (CM) from the fields of management, communication and culture.

Project Work and Master’s Theses

Project work and the master’s thesis form the core of your master’s program. The project work is completed in conjunction with one or more industrial partners or as part of publicly funded projects. This will involve handling practical, application-oriented research topics at a high technical level. The results you achieve could be incorporated directly into products or processes offered by the participating company.
