Study MBA Technology Management at the NIT

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.

This project can either be initiated by the students themselves or be an innovation project from one of the partner companies.

The NIT learning concept - Modular and innovative

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.
