Academic Qualification

Prerequisite for admission to the master’s degree programme in European Management is a professional qualification from a related field of study (e.g., business, management, economics) from a higher education institution. The bachelor's degree programmes of European Management, European Business Administration, Business Management, and Business and Law at the Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau are deemed related fields of study.

Graduates of degree programmes with a different orientation must provide proof that the course content is comparable to degree programmes in a related field of study.

Degree programmes containing at least five modules of the following fields of study in an adequate form are deemed comparable:

  • Basics of Business Management
  • Economics
  • Basic Mathematics and Statistics
  • Finance and Financial Management
  • Marketing
  • Human resources and Human Resources Management
  • Controlling
  • Accounting
  • Taxation and Tax Law
  • EU Law and the Institutions of the European Union

These modules can also have been completed as part of a master's degree (e.g., MBA). Relevant work experience over and beyond eight weeks (see below) can be taken into account when assessing the student’s qualifications.

International Professional Experience or Semester Abroad

For admission, applicants must prove attendance of an internship or professional experience appropriate to the objectives of the degree programme. The experience must have been acquired in a country different from the student’s origin, or have a substantial international orientation (documented through employers statement). It must have a duration at least eight weeks in total; proof must be provided at the time of the application.
Alternatively, applicants can prove attendance of a study semester abroad (i.e., in a country different from the student’s origin) in a relevant field of study, encompassing successful coursework of least 25 ECTS or equivalent.

Language Requirements

For admission to this degree programme, applicants must demonstrate their knowledge of English in at least one of the following forms:

a) Proof of at least C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (GER) (recognised documents and certificates as in the valid version of the Proof of English Language Skills for Enrolment at TH Wildau -> Link),


b) Proof of acquisition of a higher education entrance qualification or higher education degree in English.


Programme Structure

Students acquire a broad range of management and related skills in three semesters of coursework.

The third semester requires a specialization in two specific subjects (‘minor specializations’), one of which can be extended to a ‘major specialization’ in the first weeks of the fourth and final semester. The rest of this semester is devoted to a master’s thesis on a topic of students’ own choice.

Competences acquired include strategic management, negotiating techniques and project management, entrepreneurship, information management, and the ability to understand and deal with complex global and European-level policy topics and processes.

Students benefit from the option of studying abroad with one of our partner universities and/or obtain a double degree (France - Lille 1 University or Spain - University of Córdoba), and of attending an international project in the first weeks of the fourth semester.

All courses are taught in small groups and enriched by a broad range of online-supported teaching methods.

Students have 24/7 access to the library.
