You are fully involved in your professional life, but would like new impulses? Perhaps you are also planning to develop a business idea and set up your start-up?

In our certificate programme, you will learn about innovative methods and gain new inspiration. Participants in our English-language certificate program study together with our international master students of the M.A./MBA program in technology management and benefit from an intercultural learning atmosphere.

From Innovation Methods to Leadership

The contents of our study program are modular. This makes it possible to complete individual modules flexibly according to one's own needs and to set priorities. Our studies consist of presence and group phases as well as online learning. Presence takes place almost exclusively in the off-peak hours - on Friday evenings and weekends. 

The entire NIT program is accredited by FIBAA. This means that you receive credit points (ECTS) from the NIT for each successfully completed module during your certificate studies, which you can have credited to your later studies at the NIT.

Project-based course to become an "Innovation Manager"

At the heart of the technology management course is MyProject - an innovation-driven project that students work on independently but with intensive support from their lecturers. In MyProject, students develop methodological skills that are in demand in an agile, digital working environment

In addition to the possibility of taking MyProject embedded in our M.A./MBA program, we offer you the opportunity to study four modules of MyProject plus one module out of the complementary studies and, after successful participation, complete them with the "Innovation Manager" certificate (30 ECTS). Instead of the master thesis you can optionally add a detailed business plan check by an experienced lecturer.

Financing and Fees

Our modules can be booked individually or as certificate studies for Innovation Manager. The tuition fee per module is 1,950 Euro (1,750 Euro for registered students). If you decide to study to become an Innovation Manager and thus take several modules from MyProject, the tuition fee is 7,500 €.
In this case, you will benefit from a saving of 23 % compared to the individual booking of the modules.

If you develop a business idea or an innovation project in MyProject, you can optionally book a detailed business plan check by an experienced expert. We offer this offer for 2,500 €.

How to apply for our Certificate Program

We check your admission requirements individually. Depending on your degree, professional experience and language skills, we will assess your suitability for certificate studies at the NIT. Please contact our admissions team and discuss your individual plans for certificate studies.
