Master of Science in Management [Construction Real Estate Infrastructure]


Program Description

The consecutive bachelor's and master's degree programmes in Management teach students to become management engineers with interdisciplinary expertise and skills which enable them to respond to the changing needs of the construction, real estate and infrastructure-based markets.

Programme Structure

The course of study is divided up into two consecutive degree programmes.

This means that students may pursue two degrees in succession:

  • A bachelor's degree in six semesters
  • A master's degree in four semesters

ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credit points are used throughout and greatly simplify the process of evaluating and recognizing academic achievement attained at other institutions of higher education. These credits confirm that the student has successfully completed the subject along with the required course work for the subject.

Potential workplaces

Graduates of the bachelor's degree programme are able to take on complex consulting tasks and, with an appropriate amount of on-the-job training, managerial tasks at the lower management level.

Graduates of the master's degree programme are well prepared to carry out management tasks at middle management level within a short time. They also have good prospects for promotion to higher-level management positions.

Our statistics show that our graduates have excellent chances for entering the market and pursuing careers at numerous employers, such as:

  • Real estate market, real estate management companies
  • Project managers and developers, building contractors
  • Banks, financial consultants, investors, insurance companies
