We offer courses in two major specialization categories (so called Core Subject Combinations or "Kernfachkombination"):

  • Industrial Management
    Our first Core Subject Combination provides a profound knowledge in Industrial Business Administration as well as current topics in Industrial Management. To complement these courses students can choose from additional courses in Information & Project Management, Entrepreneurship and Law & Economics.

  • Energy and Environmental Management
    In this Core Subject Combination students are tought basics of energy and environmental economics as well as management implications. This mandatory part is complemented by courses in risk management, Operations Research and Law & Economics; of these students can choose from.

In all our courses the teaching and use of analytical tools is widespread and common as we think that a university's mission is to provide students with the ability and toolset for analytical thinking.
