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.
