Automotive management as a unique feature

Germany is a hotspot for the automotive industry. As the industry is constantly changing, there are always new challenges to be mastered. This means there is a high demand for new professionals with knowledge of business administration and engineering expertise. The MBA&E is currently the only Master’s programme in Germany that is taught entirely in English and combines business administration with engineering and offers a specialisation in automotive management. The degree will enable you to create bridges between different disciplines with your expert knowledge.
