What's inside?

The Bachelor's degree programme in Industrial Engineering and Management combines technical and scientific aspects with economics and law and qualifies you as an interdisciplinary specialist in industrial, commercial and service companies.

The demand for economically minded and technically qualified experts is increasing. You want to meet this demand. Technical systems fascinate you just as much as generalist economic knowledge. You want to immerse yourself in both worlds and understand them from the ground up. In this degree programme you will learn to combine the best of both: you will consolidate technical and scientific aspects with economic and legal aspects.

Sharpen your profile with our specialisation in Production and Manufacturing. In this degree programme, you will deal with mathematical and scientific fundamentals, acquire relevant management knowledge and also benefit from our lectures in English. The components of our degree programme are engineering, economics, management and targeted expert knowledge. For this knowledge, you can take one future-oriented specialisation: Production and Manufacturing Technologies: You will become an expert in production technology and factory equipment.

With our strong practical focus, we prepare you for your professional life. A variety of optional accompanying events help you to further develop your skills in an application-oriented context. In our Smart Labs and mobile laboratory systems, you will experience possible applications of digital technology. Our simulated acquisition interviews reflect everyday working life.

As an industrial engineer, you act at the interface between technology and business  •  Your degree programme will prepare you for this challenging task  •  You will acquire a broad understanding of both disciplines and learn to mediate between them •  You will become an expert who optimises operational processes, while keeping an eye on technical processes as well as productivity and economic efficiency.

The Content in detail

The Global Business Administration degree programme stands for diverse and efficient mGermany stands for quality and innovation, but even innovation is in a constant state of transition. In the past, we encountered innovation primarily in the area of technology or product development. Today, we increasingly find innovation in customer experience, in processes and services or in the development of business models. This makes it more difficult to effectively bring together different fields of competence.
