Are you ready to take the lead?

Our Master's program in Management positions you at precisely this interface. We designed the program in management for people with a first degree in engineering or the natural sciences who have a strong interest in management. In four semesters, you will be able to broaden your knowledge in the areas of management, law, and economics.

Building on the solid foundation of management knowledge acquired in the first two semesters, in your third semester, you will have the opportunity to select different electives that align with your personal interest. There are two areas of optional elective courses, offered exclusively at TUM Campus Heilbronn: Management of Family Businesses and Management of Digital Transformation.


These areas do not only display the special model of TUM School of Management, with its combination of entrepreneurial spirit and innovative strength - they also pay tribute to the Heilbronn-Franken region, home to a large number of global market leaders and hidden champions, many of which are family-run businesses. The degree program concludes with a written master’s thesis in the fourth semester.
