Information on Degree Program

What does this program cover?

 Educating the Innovation Managers of the Future is the goal of the four-semester Master in Management & Innovation. The program is aimed at young professionals with first professional experience who would like to bridge the gap between management and technology. As a graduate from this unique English-language program, you will have the exclusive ability to foster innovations within organizations.

How is the program structured?

Choose from two program tracks:

The TUM Track kicks off with courses in general management at TUM Campus Heilbronn*. These are accompanied by courses such as personal and career development, language courses or a mentoring program. During the second semester you have the chance to apply your knowledge in a real-life project at one of the family-run businesses in the Heilbronn-Franken region, gain international experience during a 4-week stay in China, and either complete an internship abroad or take elective modules at TUM Campus Heilbronn.

The Double Degree Track leads to a double degree from two of Europe’s most renowned universities, TUM and HEC Paris. You spend your first two semesters at HEC Paris taking courses in general management such as Financial Accounting, Marketing or Operations & Supply Chain Management – the Master in Management program at HEC Paris was ranked second in the world by the Financial Times in 2017. These courses are complemented by language classes, networking events and other extracurricular activities. Whichever track you follow, you spend your third semester in Munich taking course modules such as Innovation Prototyping, Technological Trends and Growth Strategies & Business Models. You further develop your personal and leadership skills and work on a real-life project in a startup or large enterprise in the Munich area. The fourth semester is reserved for writing your Master’s thesis.
