Your tailor-made business studies: Study General Management in Cologne

Design your own study profile with our flexible master`s in “General Management”: Our German-language study programme offers you a broadly based, business management master’s degree. Numerous options in the course give you the greatest possible scope for individualising your studies. Are you interested in digital transformation? Or would you like to learn more about personnel management? Set individual accents within our German and English language elective courses and apply your management skills in our innovative teaching formats, such as the Case Lab and our Business Project.

Complemented by our foreign language and business skills training courses, our master’s degree course in “General Management” will give you a secure foundation for your management career.

Interactive study: Modules and teaching formats in the Master`s “General Management

From the first semester onwards, you can put your newly acquired knowledge of economic interrelationships to practical use in three modules that build on each other: Our “Case Lab” focuses on current case studies and best practices on various topics. Together with your fellow students you will work out relevant results which you will present at the end of the semester. Within the scope of our “Business Project” you will solve a real or realistic business case in a team, which will be set by one of our partner companies. Finally, our “Management Simulation Game” offers you the chance to distinguish yourself as the winner of our strategy game.

Improve social and creative skills during studies

With key qualifications, you will not only be convincing in job interviews, but also possess important skills that will have a significant influence on your professional career. In the master’s degree program “General Management” you will further develop these so-called “soft” skills in courses on “Creative Thinking and Innovation” as well as “Team and Self-Management”. In preparation for a future senior management position, we also train you in the area of “Leadership Behaviour”.

Comprehensive preparation for your master’s thesis in the “General Management” programme

Before you complete your “General Management” studies in the fourth semester with your master’s thesis, we prepare you intensively for this in our seminar “Master`s Thesis Tutorial”. You will learn how to narrow down your topic correctly, structure your work cleverly in terms of content and work academically correctly. A purely theoretical master`s thesis is too dry for you? You may also write your master’s thesis during a semester abroad at one of our partner universities or as part of a company project. You may already have met the ideal practice partner for your master’s thesis in “General Management” during your internship between the second and third semester.

Study “General Management”: Diverse career perspectives in the economy

Depending on which elective courses you have chosen, the Business Administration Master’s programme “General Management” offers you the best entry opportunities into the controlling, marketing or human resources departments of companies. Thanks to your proven foreign language skills and intercultural competence, which you have developed further in our soft skills courses, as a graduate you also have all the prerequisites for an international career in:

  • (strategic) management positions in the free economy or with public employers
  • management consultancy
  • economic research institutes, business associations and economic policy institutions
  • professional independence
