Research-oriented Business Administration
Small meeting in the Masters programme in Business Administration
Master of Science (M.Sc.)


The two-year master’s programme has a research-oriented format. It trains practical abilities for different and changing business situations, but also research and social responsibility. In particular it cultivates abstraction and integration abilities, management of complex situations, scientific and team–oriented work methods as well as the ability to make independent decisions and judgements. The objective is to inspire students to undertake independent research on the basis of the methods, competences and various scientific perspectives learned. The students learn to tackle new and complex problems and to solve them using scientific methods, possibly even beyond the current breadth of knowledge.

Professional Fields of Activity

Graduates have good chances on the job market due to the diverse range of career options open to them.

The master's degree at the BTU also opens up the possibility of a subsequent Doctorate (Dr. rer. Pol., Or Dr. rer. Oec.), as well as of a scientific career.
