This full-time programme provides the opportunity to study at the interface between business, technology and IT. Our students are trained to become industrial management experts and also acquire the language and soft skills required to succeed in the world of international business.
Almost 50% of the programme content focuses on business management. As well as the fundamental principles and tools of business management, we concentrate specifically on subjects relevant to industry: processes and process management, logistics and supply chain management, financial controlling and management accounting, as well as customer orientation and marketing.
The technological content of the programme focuses on production engineering, automation and IT. Students will learn to understand the basic principles and topics involved in the manufacturing industry: What materials are available? How is production organised? How can production be optimised? And above all, how can the potential offered by IT be most effectively applied in the company, whether in the form of databases, leading global business information management systems, or the cloud.
International focus and languages
Industrial Management graduates not only need subject knowledge, but also linguistic, social and cultural skills, whether later employed by one of Austria’s global market leaders, or working abroad. That’s why students also learn two foreign languages on the programme: English is compulsory, students are free to choose their second foreign language. A total of two semesters may be spent abroad, the first at one of our 20 partner universities, and the second during the internship semester spent working at a company anywhere in the world.
