Last year, the NIT further developed the content and structure of its Master's program in Technology Management. Now the FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation) and the German Accreditation Council have successfully reaccredited the program and it may continue to bear their seal of approval.
The Master's program was thoroughly examined by a team of FIBAA experts consisting of professors and university lecturers. The NIT was able to convince with its innovative concept based on project- and practice-related learning. In particular, the reviewers rated the integration of theory and practice, interdisciplinarity and didactic concept as above average.
The study program's employability was highlighted in particular: "As a result, vocational qualification is recognizable as a 'red thread' through all study sections and methods used," according to FIBAA. Also praised were the qualified guest lecturers and tutors with an international orientation in teaching, who guarantee intensive support for students and promote personal exchange.
The curriculum was also adapted to reflect the agile, digital world of work. The "MyProject" is at the centre of the program, where students pursue an innovation project or their own start-up idea and develop it in their Master's thesis. Modules from the areas of classical management, self-development, innovation management, company foundation and digitalization also familiarise students with the entrepreneurial challenges of the future.
One program improvement is especially noteworthy: starting from September 2019 it will be possible for the first time to complete the Master's program with 120 credit points. So far, the program has been designed for 90 credit points. In addition, the NIT will open up admission to the program not only to engineers and scientists, but also to graduates from business-related studies.
