The modules of our program are each designed as individual digital learning paths consisting of classroom and group work as well as online learning.
Classroom courses take place almost exclusively in the off-peak hours - on Friday evenings and weekends. Thus, the Master's program can be organized according to your current situation and can be completed alongside a doctorate or career, or, for example, parallel to family responsibilities.
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.
With our innovative learning concept, we reflect our agile, digital work environment: We do not focus on teaching, but on learning, which takes place flexibly, practically, networked and in the form of 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 or IT security expand on further important aspects of technology management. In addition, students can learn programming and familiarize themselves with relevant innovation methods such as design thinking in real projects.
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 innovation project based on business area 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, 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.
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 (TUHH)) or as a certificate study, for example with an Innovation Manager qualification.
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.
