Without welfare, there is no welfare state: This sector focuses on the well-being of all citizens – and at the same time generates a high level of economic output. A comprehensive degree in Social Management will train you in the areas of business administration, law and ethics. After graduating, you will be ready to take on responsible positions – for example as a quality officer in social services or as a manager of social institutions.
The consecutive 120 ECTS master’s programme builds on your knowledge from your bachelor’s programme and shows you how to transfer modern management methods to the social economy.
