Study objectives

The two-year Master’s programme in European Management provides expert knowledge in international management with a European perspective. The programme can be fully completed in English language and is thus a perfect choice for international students interested in getting started in Germany or Europe as well as for German or European students preparing for an international career.

During three semesters of courses, students will acquire expert management skills in different core areas of international management:

  • Finance
  • Marketing

In addition students will have the possibility to gain first-hand professional business experience in an international business project, get a European perspective on economic and public policy and on international management, acquire skills in project management and negotiating, and have a chance to improve on an additional language (German, French, Spanish).  In the fourth and final semester students write a Master’s thesis on a topic of their own choice.

One of the aspects I like the most about the European Management degree is that students have the possibility to put the theory into practice by working with companies through different projects. Not only does this give a real life feeling and experience but it also helps to discover and develop skills that are essential for a future professional life.

Although my main subject was marketing, I also had the possibility to gain knowledge in financial topics which enabled me to develop and strengthen my analysis skills and contemplate different situation from a broader perspective.

Moreover, through this study course I learned better how to work in an international environment with people from different backgrounds and cultures - which I really enjoyed!

The European Management Master Program is a good combination of practical knowledge, such as real projects with companies and other universities, as well as theoretical knowledge. Courses given in this Program are targeted to meet today's labour market demand. Students have a great opportunity to have general as well as in-depth knowledge in such fields as Marketing, Accounting, Finance, Human Resources, Risk Management, Project Management and Decision Making.
