Take the next step in your career! The NIT Master’s Program (M. A./MBA) in Technology Management prepares you for responsible leadership and management tasks. The contents are specially tailored to the requirements of a changing working environment through a high level of practical experience and project-based learning. Together with fellow students from all over the world, you will learn to plan and implement complex projects and innovative ideas on your own responsibility.

Flexible study – Extra-occupational or in addition to your doctorate!

The Technology Management program is organized in modules in classroom and group phases as well as online learning.

Classroom work takes place almost exclusively in the off-peak hours – on Friday evenings and weekends. Thus you can complete your studies part-time alongside work commitments, working on a thesis or individual obligations.

Studies with 90 or 120 ECTS – It's up to you!

You decide whether you complete our Master's program with 90 or 120 ECTS. Depending on your previous studies and your personal goals and requirements, you can choose the total scope and speed of your Master's studies yourself.

For a Master's degree with 120 ECTS you will participate in additional modules (complementary modules) and thus collect additional credit points. The 120 ECTS study option is particularly attractive for foreign students who wish to apply for a student visa for Germany.
