During the internship (9 ECTS), the Master Thesis (24 ECTS) and the studies at a partner university abroad (30 ECTS), students further deepen their theoretical and practical knowledge in topics related to automotive management.
The Master in Automotive Management (MSc) is developed and conducted in close cooperation with major German car manufacturers, suppliers, automotive associations, and politics to ensure the practical relevance of its content. Moreover, these institutions contribute to the courses through guest lectures, case study supervision, field trips, topics for the master thesis, and student work feedback.
It is, of course, not only the economic significance of the automotive industry that makes it such a popular employer, but also the highly emotional and innovative products.
