Course Description

For the winter term 2024/25, the M.Sc. in International Management has been renamed as M.Sc. in Management Science. This change was made to better reflect the academic focus of the program.

The program aims at (international) students who want to study a post-graduate program in Business Administration/Management in English, which combines an academic focus with application-oriented topics.

Students who started the M.Sc. in International Management in the winter of 2023/24 or before are not affected by this change.
