Founder or Managing Director

As a founder, you turn your business idea into a reality and launch a new company. Once you have achieved this, as a Managing Director and Manager, you are responsible for implementing your business idea on the market, bringing your product or service to the big time – and keeping it there. Relevant management skills from your studies will help you to successfully manage your company. 

Product Owner or Product Manager

As a Product Owner or Product Manager, you are an expert for the market launch and implementation of a new product, business model or field. Your goal is to continuously increase value – not only in terms of the product, but also in terms of the project team. You are responsible for linking the agile management methods of digitalisation with entrepreneurial methods, and benefit in your daily work from the combination of relevant marketing and sales know-how as well as entrepreneurial skills from your studies. 

Innovation Manager

Innovation Managers are project managers for internal or external innovation projects. You take care of the future viability of a company, help shape the digital transformation and create a culture of innovation within the company. Especially in medium-sized companies, you act as a link between Company Management and technical innovations.
