At the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management you can study technology management individually. Depending on your personal goals, you can complete your studies at the NIT with a master's degree, a double degree in combination with a master's degree in engineering or natural sciences at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), or with a certificate, for example with an Innovation Manager qualification

Over 20 years of experience in Technology Management

For 20 years, the NIT has attracted outstanding students and lecturers from all over the world. They benefit from an international and intercultural atmosphere in which ideas are openly discussed and innovative projects are put into practice.

Management studies at the NIT have always offered a strong practical orientation that is promoted by a constant exchange with partners from business and science.

The modules of our program are each designed as individual digital learning paths, consisting of classroom and group work as well as online learning. Thus the Master's program can be studied while working.

The NIT learning concept - Modular and innovative

At the NIT, we reflect a modern, agile, digital 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.

Practice-oriented learning on a real project: MyProject

In order to enable independent learning, each student has a real project at the center of their studies at the NIT. In the MyProject area, 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.

Degree according to your needs

 At the NIT, you can complete the Technology Management course as an M. A., an MBA or with a certificate.

Whether you graduate with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) or a Master of Arts (M. A.) depends on your previous career.

In the area of certificate studies, you can complete individual modules or complete the five-module "Innovation Manager" certificate program.

  • MBA
    You are studying for a master's degree or a double master's degree and have already gained 2 years of professional experience after completing your first degree.

  • M. A.
    You continue to study the Master or the Double Master directly after the Bachelor or have less than 2 years professional experience before you start the Master study at the NIT in October.

  • Certificate
    You take part in individual modules of the curriculum and receive a certificate on successful completion. 

Flexible and individual study options. How would you like to study?

The modularized study program at the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management offers a variety of combinations through various study options: as a Master (M.A./MBA), as a Double Master (M.A./MBA in combination with an engineering or natural science MSc at the Hamburg University of Technology), or as a certificate study—for example, receiving a certificate in Innovation Management.


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.


You take part in individual modules of the curriculum and receive a certificate upon successful completion.

If you complete several modules from the MyProject area, you can complete them with the "Innovation Manager" certificate.



There are many ways to support you in financing your studies. Outstanding applicants can benefit from scholarships from our partner companies. In addition, we recommend applying for scholarships from foundations and associations. Additionally, we would be happy to advise you and help you arrange student loans.
