Information on Degree Program
What does this program cover?
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.
