Our philosophy makes us successful

We always strive to offer our stu­dents a modern Master’s pro­gram with topics that are as up to date as pos­sible. To this end, we con­ti­nuously develop our courses both in terms of con­tent and didac­tics. We see a high level of prac­tical rele­vance in our sub­ject and method areas as the basis for a pro­fes­sio­nally ori­ented, com­pre­hen­sive edu­ca­tion.

What do our students say about us?

The wide range of pos­sible com­bi­na­tions of the BA&OR Master pro­gram and stu­dies abroad enables me to shape my inte­rests in my stu­dies according to my wishes.

Katha­rina Oehler Stu­dent

The very good study con­di­tions, the excel­lent repu­ta­tion of the faculty and the inten­sive super­vi­sion played a decisive role in my decision for the BA&OR Master’s pro­gramme.
