M. Sc. European Management

Double Degree Program

Modern management is becoming ever more internationally oriented. The M.Sc. European Management provides a unique intercultural study experience at leading European universities to prepare students for the demands of the European labor market.

Students in this program spend one year at the University of Tübingen and one year at the partner university of their choice. They are able to choose from a broad range of courses at both universities to tailor the contents of the program to their specific needs. Due to the international focus of the program, graduates are able to get into different working procedures in different countries efficiently and adopt beneficial practices employed in other cultures.

In addition to the M.Sc. in European Management, students are granted a Master’s degree from their chosen partner university. With this additional qualification, graduates have a wider range of employment possibilities in different countries and multinationally operating companies.
