Students complete a sound curriculum that prepares them for advanced work in academic and professional fields. We enable students to develop technical skills in terms of knowledge, heuristics, and problem-solving know-how in Management and Marketing. These skills form the foundation for further education.
In addition, conceptual skills are developed to enable students to structure complex managerial problems. These skills are complemented by the acquisition of social skills through teamwork, group discussions, role-playing, and team projects.
Moreover, an increasingly globalized world demands the integration of social skills into intercultural competence. This particularly involves the ability to successfully operate in different countries, languages, and cultures and to participate in cross-cultural teams. Therefore, the third semester is spent at one of our partner universities abroad.
