Next, you will gain intercultural and ethical decision-making skills and improve your digital skills. In addition, you will learn about intercultural psychology and humanities. In the following semesters, you will learn how to act and think like an entrepreneur in courses such as “Digital business models” and “Leadership 4.0”. You also study two foreign languages of your choice to prepare yourself for a promising future in internationally operating companies.
Practical relevance in your online study programme Management
Your online study programme Management is practice-oriented. You get to apply your acquired knowledge in 7 project-based modules such as “Design thinking”, “Development of business ideas” and “New work”. You also learn how to make the right decisions from an entrepreneurial point of view. You are taught how to analyse data and derive courses of action. This gives you actual practical experience to fall back on once you start your career.
Your professional future as a management expert
Good managers are becoming increasingly valuable. Economic and social circumstances are becoming ever more complex. This calls for organisational talents that create optimal conditions for excellence and lead their teams to success. After graduating, you can work as…
As an operations manager, you plan and control various processes. You optimise business procedures and make sure they are contributing to your success, always keeping an eye on your defined goals. Which goals these are is also largely dependent on the industry you work in. Whether it’s social, cultural or public institutions, mid-size companies or start-ups – operations managers are always involved in value generation.
As international growth manager, you identify opportunities for growth on each individual company level. You have profound knowledge of the market and know precisely where to unlock potential on a political, economic and technological level. If you decide to go into consulting, you will be the contact person for customers who are looking to do something big. Alternatively, you can work directly in a company as an advisor to management level.
For internationally operating companies, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Different cultures call for customised approaches. As an intercultural manager, it is your job to make sure that corporate communication, representation and action does not miss its target. To this end, you are involved in many areas of business, including marketing, HR and product development.
Study model and prices for the Bachelor's online study programme in Management
Depending on your personal or professional situation, full-time study is not always easy to manage. That is why we have also developed part-time programmes for all our degrees, which offer flexible and longer study periods. This way, you can study alongside your job or during your time off, whether at home or abroad. The content of the different models is identical. Depending on the study model, we will adjust your tuition fees accordingly. With the part-time variants, your weekly study workload is reduced.
Can't finish your degree in the allotted time? No problem! We will develop the right study model for everyone. If you realise that you need more time, you can easily switch to another study model with three months’ notice before the end of the month. These are our different study models:
