Many courses are taught in English, in order to meet the needs of foreign students.

A Masters degree is the second level of degree that can be obtained at a German university, after a Bachelors degree. It allows students to gain in-depth knowledge of a subject in an advanced course of study that lasts between two and four semesters. It also affords students the opportunity to develop valuable relationships and sometimes obtain hands-on experience via internships and research. Once a student obtains a Masters degree, he or she can enter the job market or aim for a higher academic degree: the doctoral degree.

Universities in Germany are renowned for offering top-notch Master and Bachelor programs at a relatively cheaper cost than their counterparts in the United Kingdom, United States and Australia. Although tuition and fees vary among Masters degree programs, scholarships, fellowships and grants are available for qualifying students.

Once a student finishes a degree program, career opportunities are plentiful in Germany. Many educational institutions offer students the chance to do internships in their chosen field. German companies such as BMW, Bosch, Daimler, and Siemens offer a wealth of opportunities to students interested in finance, marketing, engineering and many more areas. The close proximity of London, Paris, and Rome also expand the pool of job prospects for recent graduates. Even if a student chooses to return to his or her home country after completing the studies, the prestige of a German degree will give a distinct advantage in today's competitive job market.

If you are an international student, there is a fair amount of preparation to be done when planning to study in Germany.

Master in Corporate Management & Economics

Zeppelin University
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years August 2017 Germany Friedrichshafen

Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122.

Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122. So what now? For a deeper understanding of these new challenges – unavoidable crises aside – knowledge in communication sciences, cultural sciences and political sciences are imperative. Medialization in the form of "CEO branding" and the harmonization of "product-, equity- and employer branding" within the national culture are as much part of the challenge faced by today's top decision-makers as interaction with political networks, regulation and deregulation trends, privatization initiatives and public-private partnerships. Since 2003, ZU has reacted to these challenges with a new (by German standards) type of research-oriented business qualification for generalists. The novelty lies in the combination of business administration and economics with cultural studies, communication and media studies, as well as aspects of political science and public administration. A program that questions the economy. We have already had enough answers. The pro­fes­sors know this one best: What are the eight most im­por­tant ques­tions oc­cu­py­ing the fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics? Sus­tain­able or­ga­ni­za­tions What will fu­ture or­ga­ni­za­tions be like after years of on­go­ing re­or­ga­ni­za­tion? Net­worked or in­for­mal? Global cap­i­tal mar­kets What... [-]
