With the Master in Management & Technology, we created a program that gives you an outstanding education in management as well as profound skills in engineering or natural sciences at one of Europe’s top technical universities.
Decision makers with a high level of responsibility regularly face challenges that reach beyond strictly managerial issues. Having knowledge of how technical development and production processes are designed enables managers to assess the situation and make sound decisions accordingly. Furthermore, the strict separation of different departments within a company is dissolving. A solid understanding of how your colleagues in distinctive fields work and think will be key to successful leadership and performance on the job. The program’s unique combination empowers you to drive innovation and perform tasks at the interface of management and technology – and thus prepares you for your future professional life.
For a comprehensive description of the program, please refer to the degree program documentation:
Which further expertise and skills will I acquire?
Become a skilled business Project Manager, Product Developer, Strategy Manager, Production Manager, Controller, HR Manager or Entrepreneur with a profound understanding of technical knowledge.
The program is designed to meet you at your current academic stage. Regardless of whether you already have an interdisciplinary background gained through a degree combining management and technology or if you are rooted in pure management studies – you will be equally prepared to reach the same goal: Become a skilled business leader with a profound understanding of technical knowledge.
The core of the program lies within the two areas of Management and Technology. Both include different specialization options to choose from. At the beginning of your studies you select one out of seven specializations currently offered in the Management area. The same goes for the area of Technology: depending on your previously gained knowledge, you can choose from six different specializations. Depending on the choice of specialization in technology, the degree can be studied up to 100 % in English. Students with an existing technical understanding from their acquired Bachelor’s degree can deepen their knowledge in this area (major) or if you don’t have any previous knowledge in technology, the program allows you to gain basic skills in your selected technology (minor).
This evidence of your language proficiency confirms that you comply with the minimum language requirements for admission to the program. Depending on the program and your individual background, it may be necessary for you to keep working on your language skills during your studies. Be sure to take a look at the services of our Language Center.
Language of instruction:
The language of instruction for this program is up to 100% in English. Only the specializations in Technology Computer Engineering and Industrial Engineering are feasible 100% in English.
Minimum requirements to apply for a Master's program at TUM are a recognized undergraduate degree (e.g. a bachelor’s) and the successful completion of the aptitude assessment procedure. Aptitude assessment allows the TUM school or department to which you are applying the opportunity to evaluate your individual talents and motivation for study.
We may require additional documents depending on the type of educational background you earned and your country of origin.
After accepting an offer of admission in TUMonline, you will receive a list of documents you must submit to TUM in hardcopy for enrollment.
