The unique combination of international business administration and European business law are at the forefront of this English-language master degree program. Special focus is given to innovative concepts of management, digitalization, sustainability and diversity. In this way, we prepare you for the ever-increasing number of professional fields, which require not only economic, but also legal competencies.
The first year of study provides a solid foundation in the key areas of international management, European business law and digital transformation. The two specializations "HR, Leadership & Diversity" and "Strategic Management & Sustainability" are at the fore of the second year of study.
CURRICULUM & COURSES
Humans and their behavior are at the center of interest in the social sciences. In this program, the focus of interest is also on people - the development of their competencies, the understanding of their behavior in organizations and their entrepreneurial, and other, economic activities.
To successfully meet the challenges of today's economy, we need to understand the digital transformation of traditional business models. Here, we look at how the legal requirements that arise in an increasingly digital economy can be successfully managed.
From an economic standpoint, we look at global markets and also discuss access to them from a marketing perspective. In particular, we analyze recent developments such as the increasing role of AI and e-commerce, which are increasingly influencing or even replacing classic market transactions.
A scientific study requires precision in the use of research methods. This is supported by means of offering courses on the subject throughout your studies. This provides you the opportunity to continuously expand your competencies in this field and to complete your studies with a methodologically profound master thesis.
Achieving economic goals usually requires coordination and control, which we commonly refer to as management activities. During your studies, you will learn about international and strategic management, as well as tools for planning, coordinating and controlling economic activities.
In order to finance economic activities and to be able to account for the use of our financial resources, the topics of accounting, financing and tax law are approached from an international perspective.
