For 20 years we have successfully offered our general management study programs for engineers.
Due to our lengthy experience with study programs we have at our disposal a first-rate international network of university professors and teachers with practical corporate experience, which we use to match you with the right mentor for your needs.
Our corporate programs range from intensive workshops over several days and summer schools to management training over several months for executives and management trainees.
Alternatively we can offer various formats at your premises, in our Design Thinking Space at the NIT in Hamburg or elsewhere.
On request, participants in our corporate programs can complete the course with a certificate issued by the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH).
Jointly with tesa, a global manufacturer of self-adhesive system solutions, the NIT has developed a customized training program for senior management personnel. Its aim is to intensify executives’ expertise in their respective areas and, more importantly, to understand and question corporate strategy from a management perspective and to discuss tesa’s further strategic development.
The management development program consists of six modules. The responsible tesa executive and an NIT faculty member, specialized in the subject area, implement each module. Faculty members come from different universities and business schools from NIT's international network.
The program is implemented annually at tesa locations around the world (Hamburg, Lisbon, Shanghai). It consists of Strategy, Human Resources, B2B, Supply Network, B2C, and Financial Management modules. Participants are global in scope and reflect a mix of different functional disciplines. They are mainly managers who hold a key position. On average, there are 15 attendees.
In this program, NIT performs an important control and coordination function, especially in respect of the faculty members involved. In developing the program’s contents NIT representatives contribute their extensive expertise in executive education.
The NIT contributes to continuous development of the program by means of tried and trusted forms of evaluation. Cooperation is practically applied through the program, as the program team is comprised of representatives of tesa and NIT. The program team meets regularly and discusses all aspects that are of program relevance, ranging from operational details of organization to fundamental issues that are to be dealt with in a module.
Thomas Fuchs (then Managing Director Human Resources ) explains the program's backstory:
"The task was to draw up a program for senior managers at the company which conveyed the state of external knowledge at international business schools in combination with the situation at their firm. This enabled them to deal with corporate strategy, to take part in the further development of this strategy, and to develop and implement new strategies of their own.
What matters to us is that the employee’s focus is not solely on the company, but that their eyes are opened to the world around them: the global economy in its constant state of change with fluctuating markets and a competitive environment. Given that this is a management program we would like our employees to be taught knowledge from the company's key areas of specialization.
We chose the NIT because it designed a program for us that is precisely geared to meet our requirements. The NIT arranged an international group of professors for us who have been collaborating closely with our management to design the individual modules. We wanted a custom-designed program that was different from the conventional solution, and that is what we now have. The NIT has always been open, creative, and flexible."
Prof. Matthias Meyer about the success of the program:
"An important factor for the success of our program is the close exchange of different perspectives which tesa, the NIT, and I, as the Academic Coordinator, contribute to the project. The program—and with it the customers—benefit from a great deal of experience and expertise in program design, the choice of suitable professors, and the further development of the program."
We would be pleased to create an individual Corporate Programm for your company. Feel free to contact us!
