The MBA Technology Management degree programme teaches the basics of business administration and engineering in equal measure. Graduates have the opportunity to specialise in their professional life. The career prospects are considered good to very good, as companies are urgently looking for specialists in this field. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is considered the highest academic management qualification and is primarily aimed at subject experts who have both feet in the working world.
At the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management you study technology management individually: Depending on your personal goals, you can complete your studies at the NIT with a Master's degree or a double degree in combination with an engineering or science Master's degree at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH).
By earning an MBA in Technology Management, many opportunities are open to you. There are many possibilities, like product development, production planning and management of a company. The expertise of technology managers is in high demand in various professions, such as product management, production optimisation, sales & marketing. The doors are also open to you internationally, as NIT places great emphasis on internationally oriented teaching.
We accept applications from outstanding international and German students, in particular students must have:
The content of the MBA has a high practical component as well as project-based learning and prepares you for leadership and management tasks.
In order to enable independent learning, each student has a real project at the center of their studies at the NIT. Students implement an innovative project based on an area of business development.
This project can either be initiated by the students themselves or be an innovation project from one of the partner companies. Students can apply and deepen their acquired knowledge in the areas of corporate innovation and entrepreneurship during the internship as well as during the Master's thesis.
At the NIT, we reflect a modern and agile work environment through our innovative learning concepts: we do not focus on lecturing, but rather on student-learning through many dynamic, practical, and socially-integrated projects.
Modules from the areas of classical management, self-development, innovation management, company foundation, and digitalization familiarize students with the entrepreneurial challenges of the future.
Topics such as ethics, law, and IT security further expand on important aspects of technology management. In addition, students can learn programming and familiarize themselves on real projects with relevant innovation methods such as design thinking.
Be both: an engineer or scientist AND a technology manager. In our double degree Master’s program, you study an M. Sc. (in English or German) at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) and at the same time, a Master’s in Technology Management (in English) at the NIT.
Take your next career step! The NIT's MBA/Master Program in Technology Management is designed for ambitious engineers, scientists and graduates of business-related studies from around the world, who strive to become responsible technology managers in a modern and agile working environment.
The duration can be flexibly adapted through our modular learning concept.
