- The master's degree program in Business Administration is a full-time degree program which, due to the timing of the modules on offer, can also be studied part-time in addition to work. The individual courses take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons as well as on Wednesday afternoons in the first and second semesters. In a block week before the beginning of the third semester, you will learn to make fundamental entrepreneurial decisions as part of a business planning game. The week before the beginning of the fourth semester is intended for the international excursion to another cultural area.
The teaching concept of the Master of Science in Business Administration is based on different forms of learning. In principle, the program uses the methods of the Anglo-Saxon system, including in particular the use of case studies and guided self-study.
Corresponding to the Anglo-Saxon system, the character of a lecture changes due to the "reading assignments" with which you prepare yourself for the lecture. The lecture only briefly summarizes the content, so that teachers and students can intensively discuss specific questions - for example, the implementation of individual concepts in practice.
In contrast to the typical German practice of short-term exam preparation, continuous self-study is therefore given high priority. The "reading assignments" contain case studies that you work on in teams, as well as excerpts from specialist literature.
The results of the group work will be discussed in tutorials under the direction of the lecturers.
