Master
(Master of Arts)

The Master's course in Business Sciences is the continuation of a successfully completed Bachelor's degree course in Economics or Business Sciences. As a student, you have the opportunity to specialise in one of the three offered elective areas of Health Management, International Business Management and Green Business Management and thereby purposefully form a professional profile.

A Master's degree in Business Sciences allows our graduates to position themselves for management-level employment offers in nearly all service and industrial companies. The goal of a Master's course is to familiarise students with the special requirements of small and medium-sized companies in order to prepare them for leadership activities. The course therefore holds interest for company founders as well as, for instance, students who want to take over their parental business. More rigorously scientific working methods than in the preceding Bachelor's course are designed to qualify them additionally for professional activities in scientific and research institutes. Other possibilities are participation in corporate research projects or the optional choice of a career as an academic scientist with the prospect of gaining a PhD. In public administrations and institutions, an academic Master's degree is the precondition for embarking on a senior civil service career.

The close relations of the bbw University of Applied Sciences with companies make the practical orientation of all study courses a particularly valuable asset. The bbw University's integration of the fib Research Institute makes it possible to gain direct experience of research projects.

Statements of students

The master's course in Business Sciences is qualified for extend my previous expertises in the Bachelor of Sciences. I think that the elective area of 'International Business Management' provides a good national career entry as well as international. From my point of view it is a great chance to gain ground in a company. Due to the fact that the studies is practical and there is the possibility to participate in own projects we can apply our new knowledge directly. In addition we can solve issues and get an insight in the innovative world of economy. For me the master's course in Business Sciences with the elective area of 'International Business Management' at the bbw university is ideal. It is possible to do a side job because of the good temporal organisation of the lectures.

Currently I am studying Business Sciences at the bbw university in the six semester. During my studies I learn to appreciate the offer of the bbw university. As a student of a private university you can benefit from it in different ways. Because of the small study groups it is possible to raise the learning success of every single student, the professors have quite simply more time for each students. The planning of our modules take place half a year in advance. So, there is enough time to do a side job beside the studies. After my bachelor degree I would like to do the master's course in Business Sciences with the elective area of 'International Business Management' at the bbw university. I see a high potential for the improvement of my professional admission options in this master's course. In addition I think it make the entrance in interesting sectors such as chemistry and pharma more easier.

Johannes Stolze

The master of arts with its focus on international business management has many interesting contents. The topics convinced me to start my studies and the bbw university in Berlin. Because of the small groups and the intensive assistance by the professors everyone has the chance to catch up fast with new people. The lectures take place in german. Nevertheless, the master program 'International Business Management' is accepted from many internationals. The university is located in the centre of Berlin Charlottenburg and the transport connection is very good. It is the perfect location to spend some time with other students after the lectures.
