What does this program cover?

The add-on study program Technology Management prepares highly talented students for future leadership positions in society and industry in the field of high-technology management. Theoretical and methodological knowledge, soft skills, hands-on experience in trend research, product development, marketing, and entrepreneurship is imparted in English language.

Each semester up to 25 students with different study backgrounds ranging from Business Administration over Computer Science and Electrical Engineering to Psychology and Consumer Affairs, and more, get enrolled. During the program students are involved in project- and team-based lectures, seminars, and workshops which reflect the latest business and technology topics of practical relevancy.

Courses are supported by renowned business partners of high-technology and consulting sectors. Excellent education is achieved by the integration of relevant external academic and professional guest lecturers, intense coaching, strong networking, lived interdisciplinarity and highly innovative course formats.

Studies abroad at prestigious partner universities in Asia, Europe, and North America, or an internship abroad is an integral part of the curriculum and emphasizes the high degree of the program’s internationality.

During the course of studies, students learn to act at the interface between high-technology and business. They learn to take the role as effective managers in a dynamic and cross-functional environment, in which technology and business-related questions overlap. On top of all this, students gain access to an active network of academics, professionals, and other highly motivated students.
