Program Description

Management Education for Engineers and Scientists

Are you passionate about engineering or science, but you want to go a step further? How about adding general management know-how, leadership skills, expertise in entrepreneurial management and proficiency in another foreign language to your profile? Our Double Degree Master´s Program in Technology Management meets the industry demand for engineering or science with a management education.
