Master your Career with German Industrial Engineering: Study our MBA in Operational Excellence and become an expert in Production and Supply Chain Management!

Operational Excellence / Industrial Engineering (M.B.A. and Eng.)

Duration: 1 hour

You already earned a Bachelor of Engineering and gathered some professional experience? You are interested in modern business and production processes and the secrets of “Made in Germany”? Then our MBA Operational Excellence is just right for you. Kick-start your career with our perfect interdisciplinary toolbox of engineering and business know-how for an aspiring industrial engineer.

Our business-oriented modules provide you with the strategic and financial framework of companies. Find out about the critical factors for success in leadership and change processes and how to master them with expert communication and negotiation skills.

On the engineering side, the focus is on operational excellence, particularly the following methods:

  • Lean management
  • Six Sigma
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Agile Management
  • Digitalization and Industry 4.0

With our holistic management approach, we also look at business operations such as purchasing or IT. Our teaching methods include various modern methods such as cloud-based simulations, haptic management games and case studies.

A unique feature of our MBA is that students spend the second year (third and fourth semester) doing a practical internship in industry (e.g. in a production facility or an SCM department). Thus, you can immediately apply your knowledge, gain profound professional experience and earn money at the same time!

Our university offers an attractive and open-minded study environment, especially for international students. As a practice-oriented University of Applied Sciences, the employability of our graduates is the main focus of our teaching. All our professors have at least five years of professional experience in management positions.

During this online session, you learn more about our program and how it can help boosting your career goals. A strong applicant would have a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering and one year of work experience. Ideally, participants in this open online day have an English proficiency level of at least 90 points (TOEFL iBT) or 6.5 (IELTS). It would be great if you had some basic language skills in German (A1).
