Master of Science in Business Administration

 The Master of Science in Business Administration  is composed of: 

  • an obligatory part of general business administration, which consists of at least two majors (so-called “SBWL”; 20 ECTS each; three are also possible) and
  • a compulsory part in terms of an optional subject from the fields of economics, statistics, econometrics, or informatics (more than one possible).

As major subjects students may choose between:

  • corporate finance,
  • entrepreneurship and innovation management,
  • marketing,
  • organization theory and design
  • accounting and auditing,
  • supply chain management and
  • technology management.

Each specializing subject (major/SBWL) in business administration consists of different lectures and additional seminar(s) (at least one seminar and three lectures have to be taken). Besides its functional contents, the seminar imparts knowledge and practices about techniques regarding research, lecturing, and moderating the functional discussion.

When all required courses and the master thesis are passed so that 120 LPs are acquired, the master examination is passed. The processing time for the master thesis is six months; the regular time of study for the master's program is four semesters.

This showing of the master's study structure is only due to information and is not affecting your choices. Nonetheless, for specialization, it is recommended to focus on one major (SBWL) and complement it with other modules.
